    if i can just get the keyboard back on here i can get back to running normal, i just cant type anything at all in any field, the only thing i can do is call a number or recieve a call or receive a text. Other thing is that i factory reset the phone and still no keyboard, and i just re-rooted.

    in the market search for better keyboard 8 i think...its free and it will give you a new keyboard....thats the easiest way other than an ODIN restore

    These are the stock 2.1 ODIN files....simply follow posted instructions in the thread and you can be restored in 10min or less...

    ODIN: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=J4Y10P6G

    2.1 ODIN packages-

    DL01: [ODIN] Full DI01 ODIN Package - xda-developers <~~~I suggest this one, it will be stock out of the box from VZW
    DJ05: [ODIN] Full DJ05 Odin Package - xda-developers
    DL09: [ODIN] Full DL09 Odin Package - xda-developers

    or
    2.2
    Froyo 2.2(this will root you, install EB01 SC v2.4 Rom, install EB01 modem, install EB01 kernel and install custom red ClockworkMod recovery) saves you all the time and trouble of doing it yourself
