    Chkmate need to ask you a question If I dont want to install gingerbread keyboard can I get the back ground out of stock? Second I use Aol alot I can get emails ok everything sinc is there anyway to get contact list to come up if you want to forward I know if you start to type they come up but Im old and cant remember addresses I have it setup now where I put aol widget from mail shortcuts on screen it gets me there but It takes forever. The only rom thats let you do it is stock and apex. Really like this rom fast for me and my phone and runs smooth so far Thanks

    Ok, first, did you update to v4.2 from v4.1 or did you install the v4.2 full ROM that they recently released? Reason I ask is if you installed the full ROM they added 4-5 keyboards in a add-on's folder that you can get to from Root Explorer and Clockwork. There is a keyboard called unthemed that is one just like the one your using but w/out the background. If you don't have the add-on's file let me know and I will upload the file.

    As for the Email issue, not sure. I know exactly what you mean by it being a pain. The only thing I can suggest to make it easier is make a certain group in your contacts (which I think can be done, lol) for people that just have Emails added to the contacts. That way you can open that up, scroll to contact and click on there Email link and start composing.

    Someone may come along with a better answer. Sorry.

    That zip for the keyboard is below. Install like any other zip.

    -Move to SD card of phone
    -Reboot into Clockwork
    -Install zip from SD card
    -Choose zip from SD card
    -Navigate to unthemed_keyboard
    -Install

    If you took the full 4.2 it'll be in your add-ons folder...blur or blurless rom :)
    Root Explorer is a paid app...but very very worth the $ ;)

    I believe you mean Root Explorer :) And it really is a must have IMHO.
