    I've noticed that Fab has the gingerbread keyboard available for download in
    Rom Manager. It looks like something I'd really like to try out, however when I installed it, the keyboard was really "squished". Everything was way smaller than the stock 2.2 keyboard and I had a hard time typing. Had to do a restore.

    Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Running an X with Apex v1.

    You might try the lcd density app 240 or 260 density setting

    I would expect that to just make it even smaller - not a big fan of adjusting the density anyway, but thanks for the suggestion.

    I'm thinking it's probably a file that isn't getting updated or replaced properly. They keyboard is file width wise, but height wise it's probably like 2/3 the size it should be so all the keys are jacked up.

    Sounds Weird but get the lcd changer app. Its free. Set to 300. Reboot. Open the keyboard. Set lcd to 260 reboot open keyboard. Set lcd to 240. Reboot. Now you are at stock lcd density and keyboard looks and works great.

    Well, you guys were right! That fixed it.

    New keyboard definitely rocks! Speech-to-text doesn't work though. :(

    Do you have a D1 Husker? I don't think we have the same Rom Manager on the D1 so we can't see stuff for the D2 or the X.

    @carosati3 - No I don't have any problems with the screen going blank after sending messages.

    @DropC - after putting my phone in and out of airplane mode that seemed to fix it. I've rebooted a couple times and played around and haven't had it happen again so it must've just been a first time use thing.


    So far this keyboard has been fantastic. I've found myself much more accurate when typing, especially in portrait mode.

    So, after rebooting more than once, will the keyboard stop size resetting?

    Ok so this is my conclusion. If u are on 2.3.15 u will get a small keyboard. I just installed the leak (2.3.320) and then installed the keyboard again and it worked without doing any lcd changing

    The size of my keyboard has stayed the same after reboot once I followed the LCD changing directions.
