How to put the new Android Gingerbread Keyboard on your Android Device!

UPDATE: Keyboard now in Android Market as "Keyboard from Android 2.3" Search "Steven Lin"

Works on most devices running Android 2.1 or higher (NO ROOTING Required)*

  1. On your Android device hit Menu>Settings>Applications>Check the Unknown sources box - This must be done in order for you to be able to install the keyboard.
  2. From Android Market download an (Search “App Installer”) App Installer (I chose “A.I File Manager”)
  3. From your Android device, follow this Link and download both the files gbkb.apk & gbkb-en.apk (these are at the bottom of the first post and you will have to create a login and sign in before being able to complete this)
  4. Find the Application “App Installer” on your android device & open it.
    1. Click on the folder “Downloads”
    2. Click and install both files
  5. From Android home screen click Menu>Settings>Language & Keyboard>Check the Gingerbread keyboard box.
    1. You can also change many settings on certain things you want or don’t want the keyboard to do.
  6. Enter any application that requires keyboard uses and do a long press (press & hold) in the text field, select “Input Method” on the menu that pops up.
  7. Select Gingerbread keyboard from the list (you can do the same thing again to switch back)
  8. The Gingerbread keyboard is now your default keyboard

I hope this helps everyone better enjoy their Android device!
