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!
