    Welcome back! ;)

    Do you know if this is better than SPB Keyboard 4 - which I am using right now?

    Can it set itself as default after a soft reset?

    @Melk - Thanks... Been busy with work... :)

    Personally, i like it better than SPB Keyboard as well as HTC Touch Keyboard. (haven't tested out the Touch Pro 2 ported keyboard yet as that is buggy and doesn't work properly)

    Hi, Salman.
    Good to see you back, especially after the fun of the last week in your city. Hope all is good with you.

    My interest is peeked by this, wondering though, do you know if this will run ok with SPB (and skins) still installed, or should i remove that one first?

  4. M.Salman.K

    @Johnny Boy - Yeah. It was horrific. I slept through most of it and found out about the incident later in the evening... ;)

    As for installing the keyboard with SPB Keyboard still installed; although i haven't personally tried doing that, i think that it should create no problems at all. (Just switch to whichever keyboard you want...)

    Hey Salman.
    Could you tell me which files I've to download and install? I tried it with the FingerKeyb-2.0-WVGA file. I softreset my X1 but I can't select the SMS name option neither the text suggestion. If I try to open the keyboard I get an Error Message. What should I do? Thanks for your help.

    @Joel - I installed as well. I did not do a soft reset, and after installation i set the keyboard as default via settings.

    I did however intall to internal memory and not the storage card?
