Gingerbread Keyboard Port To Samsung i9000
Following on from the recent news of the Gingerbread SDK, XDA members have been busy extracting the keyboard and the like and porting to various devices. XDA forum member Daneshm90 is one such member and has ported the keyboard for the Samsung Galaxy S i9000.
The dev states that the port was merely a minsdk value change in the manifest and has confirmed that the keyboard works on Android 2.2.
Feedback so far is that there are no prediction libraries but that lots of languages are included, and that vibration haptic feedback does not appear to be working.
To try for your self and provide feedback, take a look at the modification thread.
