A Chinese application developed to replace the original touch keyboard with one that supported Chinese characters.
I'M NOT CHINESE, WHY SHOULD I CARE?
While it was developed to cover Chinese language, it also SUPPORTS English and is fully customizable. So, we have changed it all to get rid of the Chinese characters and turned it into a full English/International keyboard.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
This keyboard is far superior to Nokia/Samsung ones. A single key can have up to 5 characters (you get extra chars by tapping and dragging). It has copy, cut, paste, home, end, symbols table, T9 dictionary in qwerty mode, enables type-ahead in qwerty, international chars keyboard (customized), lets you type faster and, as I said, is fully customizable, letting the community create more and more layouts (like iPhone and Opera ones). For each mode (landscape and portrait) there are 7 different keyboards (selectable from a button): english qwerty, international qwerty, abc keypad, numeric mode, edit mode, symbols table, dictionary selection.
HOW TO INSTALL?
If you have it already installed, you have to disable it on settings otherwise you might get a "can't delete file" error. Download the attached DayHandInput_byMrMilk_unsigned_6.2.0017_r2.sis.zip , unzip it and install it as usual.
If you want to save some internal memory space you can now also select only the desired layouts on the installer. The "Chinese Pack" is meant for phones not originally supporting double byte characters. You may leave it checked and if you get an error, try to install again unchecking it.
HOW TO USE IT?
After installing, make sure you REBOOT your phone. No need to setup, after reboot the keyboard will be active. You can test it by writing a new sms.
HOW TO CHOOSE ANOTHER LAYOUT?
The installation process makes the Opera Mini (Portrait) and Opera Huge (Landscape) the default layouts. If you want to try the iPhone or the original one do this:
You can easily disable it on the settings or completely uninstall it. To disable it, go the settings and on the first option of the first screen, tap and select "AknFEP".
A big round of applause (and reps) to ipitbull, caominh171, fenomeno83, genio_mex and all others who made all this possible.
NOTE: After Installing reboot your phone then open this app go to the first option tap and choose 2nd option to enable (instead of aknFEP). To disable just choose the opposite (aknFEP) Enjoy!
