Install the Gingerbread QWERTY onto your Android 2.2 or 2.1 device
Click on the source link from your phone's browser(make sure you are on Wi-Fi if possible) and select either Android 2,2 or 2.1. Download the new software and then change the settings to the Gingerbread keyboard and you're finished. Thanks to some new shortcuts for spelling corrections and punctuations, you should find the new QWERTY to run faster and more smoothly than the current Android keyboard.

The keyboard pops up just fine, but force closes every single time i try to type anything. Using MyTouch 4G unrooted 2.2..... This was one of the major things i like about Gingerbread too. Oh Well

The keyboard is really small. It is definitely smaller than the stock keyboard.
Anyone else having this issue? Im on the droid X by the way.

a super tiny keyboard?
yes its being reported xda guys are on it
17. cw0974 (Posts: 23; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
it's not tiny. but it's definitely shorter than the stock. i've been reading that it is supposed to be that way. Mine isn't as bad as some droid 2 users saying that they can't even read the keys. Mine's not that small.

Works great on my samsung mezmerize (aka fascinate) ! Its so much smoother than the standard 2.1 keyboard!

Installed it loads of times on my Desire HD, and the results are the same....a forced close whenever i touch a key, the only ones that work are the punctations. It even does it on the Android keyboard i found online and installed. I've searched around the net, and no one seems to have a fix or know what the problem is. A bit crap really...
