    Themed Gingerbread Keyboards

    These are 3 themed gingerbread keyboards that I created for my themes. These should be compatible with many different ROMs, so I thought I would put them out there for others to use. I know they have been installed and work with RubiX, Tranquility, Liberty, and GummyJAR. Other ROMs should be fine as well but as with any mod, you should backup first.

    hey looks good! How do you recommend installing...I have seen several instructions. Can you clarify in your OP...thanks

    (I have seen it done in recovery, mount system, install zip. Is this what you recommend?)

    I think maybe it doesn't work with Liberty mod?

    Followed directions exactly (have installed a lot of themes etc) but it just shows the installing progress bar and hangs, have to do a battery pull. Tried twice now. Any hints?

    I have not tried it yet, but it should at least install. It is up to Bootstrap to install it and should have nothing to do with Liberty. What is the file size on yours? It should be 1383KB for the green and 830KB for the blue.

    830 KB on the nose. I even re-installed the stock gingerbread KB and tried it again. It's obviously worked for other people so it's probably something I'm doing, just can't figure out what that is exactly.

    You have to decompile and edit colors.xml and you can edit a few others as wel.

    I think these are the best looking keyboards out there, i use the blue one, i just wish the keys were bigger so i would stop hitting the wrong keys

    Yes, but they will replace the stock keyboard. I am goign to theme the version included with Liberty that installs along side the stock one and I themed the stock one in my themes.

    What keyboard are you using, Swype? Change your input method to Android keyboard.
