Droid Life Custom HTC_IME Keyboard Gallery

Again, our readers come through with some amazing stuff.  This time, reader Wes, took over the custom HTC_IME keyboard game after I posted the walk through on how to make your own.  He tossed together 11 different keyboards ranging from Batman to Hello Kitty and wanted to make sure they were made available to Droid Life readers.  Gotta love that right?  He’s also offered up his services in case any of you have a special request.  That’s right, you shoot him an email and he’ll create one for you.

So check out his first 11 and if you don’t see one you like, shoot him an email via the attached contact form!

*These are for all users.  Non-rooted and rooted.*

    Has anyone been able to get any of these custom keyboards to work on the Droid Incredible? I haven't had any luck with it. I set the Hello Kitty keyboard on my wife's Moto Droid easily. What am I doing wrong?

  • BIGMAN3100


  • Outstanding job, keep it up. May I request a punisher skull logo keyboard please?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Vince

    Is it possible to install more than one at a time? If so, how?

  • LTD10

    I really want a BMW keyboard. Also interested in the .su keyboard. This is more than fun..

  • Very nice work! Thanks for the Raiders! Hopefully they will actually win more than 5 games this year!

  • Fred Duke

    Great job on the skins, I requested Lakers.

  • josh1980

    I tried downloading one of these skins from my phone but when I downloaded it says the content not supported on this phone. Do I need to download it to my computer then install it on my droid?

  • chrisnimon

    I used Superuser logo to make a few keyboards. 1 black and gray, 1 red and black. can check them out at my lowly website.

  • All I have to say is that I love the Batman 2 keyboard <3

  • chaz

    How do we install these keyboards? its a apk file

    • chris nimon

      I made my keyboards on laptop then went back to the site on the droid. picked my keyboard and went back through it picking the same ones i had on laptop(shows you which ones you pick previously) then downloaded to phone. I had to uninstall my original IME keyboard through Astro. then installed the new keyboard (bottom one in your list). then open text box somewhere and press and hold on text box. then click input, then htc IME mod. It closes, then touch your text box again and your all set.

  • xintensex

  • joandy

    Any seminoles (FSU) fans out there? I have made a couple if anyone is interested!!

    • AtmaWeapon

      hey thank you for responding to the gamecock one! you are the man!!!! here are a few links to some icons. I wasnt sure what color you used for the spacebar so just choose the one that shows up the best!! oh and you are the effin man!!!!

      http://www.pycomall.com/images/P/gamecocks_logo… (i tried to find it without the little TM and the other junk to no avail, maybe u can cut it off if u use it)


      • joandy

        Tell me if you like this color scheme?

        • AtmaWeapon

          looks really nice. could you make the letters and symbols white tho? i think i might have trouble seeing the garnet ones, especially in bright outside sun at football games! :-D.

          • joandy

            k let me know if you like it. https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0Bw9rIaudj-03M2

          • AtmaWeapon

            soo cool dude. hey if ya wanna send the one with garnet characters i would be happy to try it out. i trust your judgement! you might just be spot on! cant go wrong with too much school color 🙂

          • joandy

            The garnet letter its hard to see lol. But it looks sooo cool. You can download the screenshot I sent you to your phone and see if you can see it in daylight. Any other color/logo combination you want?

          • AtmaWeapon

            good for now! thanks for the help man! im gonna load this baby on a bunch of droids lol. now lets root for our respected teams to beat Florida and Clemson next season!!! we both play em!!!

    No, really, I do.

    Added ability to use any color background yesterday, hoping tonight I have time to enable custom color symbol sets, generated keyboard history (to see what you, and others have made) and a few other goodies.

    Stay tuned.
