Modify The Transformer’s Dock Layout

Obviously, there are standards for everything in this world. The most widely used keyboard layout is known as QWERTY, because of the first six letters in the top left corner of the keyboard. However, despite this being standard, it is not the only way a keyboard can be laid out. Other parts of the world have special characters in their keyboards, like Spanish speaking countries, where the keyboard includes the letter “ñ” , and this is just to give you an example. Whichever style you may be used to, you will be certainly glad that XDA member fizban007 wrote up this wonderful guide on how to change the layout of the Transformer’s keyboard. The dev spent a considerable amount of time doing trial and error, modifying entries in the layout files for this device. The guide will give you everything you need to start changing the keyboard to suit your needs.

If you are in need of trying this out, please be sure to back up your original layout files in case you need them again. Please leave some feedback.

As a Colemak user I was initially frustrated with the Transformer keyboard dock, as it comes with QWERTY and there is no obvious way to change the layout. After some googling and trial-and-error I was able to solve the problem.

You can find more information in the guide thread.
