    Hey all,

    as i presented here for non-rooters, you can install the HTC IME keyboard:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/28657-htc-keyboard-droid-non-root.html

    Now, if you move the HTC_IME to /system/apps you can install some great keyboard themes via metamorph....just watch this daily updated thread:

    I am a huge fan of this keyboard.

    I had to rename the apk to HTC_IME.apk before it would work for me. When I installed and moved its to system/app, the name was different by default so MM didn't apply properly.

    Mine seems to be all properly done. I'm using Adamz smoked glass v6.0.1

    No luck on my side though. The HTC_IME.apk is in the system/app and I apply the theme. Says its applied but the keyboard doesn't change. Oh well.

    Edit: Apparently I am a little bit retarded. I had to go to the system keyboard settings and uncheck Android keyboard. Works great =p

    It actually isn't necessary to disable the default KB. You can press and hold the 123 button to get the option to choose a different input method (the new kb).

    This works on the Droid - the Metamorph version works on rooted devices. The link I posted a couple posts up works even on non-rooted devices.
