    You installed a fresh rom, so all your stuff is gone. youre gonna have to just edit the user dictionary yourself. its not an error or anything thats just how it works

    That doesn't sound right to me. I installed 2.2 Froyo and my dictionary is fine.

    Srry if bein a lil slow but not only did my droid come w a populated dictionary, it was an impressive dic at that. Im thinkin its not purely populated by user, there has to be some sort of library somewhere..

    not sure what you mean... but it seems the suggestion functionality is working, for example it suggests items such as names from my phone book, but it does not have any other words to suggest. like at all. not apple, and, love, butt, nothing, running, sleeping. none.

    i need to find a populated dictionary - i was very impressed by the wide range of the dictionary it came with.

    Thats interesting... Which rom did you install? You could also try another keyboard, such as the htc_IME one. [MOD] HTC_IME (8th June) v27: Small fix - xda-developers I know that that one comes with a dictionary. It could be that the rom you flashed just didnt include the dictionary with the keyboard in order to save memory.

    Onix is iirc, based off a leak, and Cyanogen is built from source. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bugless/58946-built-source-vs-leaked-binary-builds.html
