Download: Gingerbread Keyboard for ALL Devices

XDA Forums member hotaru released the Gingerbread keyboard as an .apk file for all users to install and enjoy.  Yep, that means you don’t have to be rooted!  As you can see from the screenies above, I installed it with ease on my stock, non-rooted OG Droid running FRG83D.  Download links after the break!  

Download:  Keyboard for 2.2 |  for 2.1

All you need to do is download the keyboard from above that matches your Android OS, tap on the file when it finishes, hit install and enjoy!

    Well done this is awesome! Put it on my OG Droid without a problem! Glad to see there are a few of us OG Droid users still out there who haven’t upgraded yet!

    Does this keyboard have a T9 feature? if not, i don’t want it. T9 is so much faster for texting. The best one I have found is Smart Keyboard Pro

    I downloaded this the day it was posted to my DX it worked fine and it had a button for Smiley faces. Then I had to wipe my SD card and forgot to save the file. Now when I download the keyboard is different it doesn’t have Smiley key anymore? 🙁

    *Parse Error* There is a problem parsing the package?

  • Rain_king46

    I agree with the people who said that the buttons are small, i do not love that. But I will say that the software seems to be pretty forgiving about where you tap and does a decent job of figuring out what you meant.

    Wow finally, a usable soft keyboard. Thanks, this keyboard works great.

    Has anyone found a link for the D2 keyboard being tiny?
