    Default Gingerbread keyboard released, should be compatible with all rooted 2.2 devices.

    If you're rooted and impatient to try out that nifty new Gingerbread keyboard, check this out: Download: Gingerbread Keyboard for Rooted Devices

    Scratch that question,just read that it isn't even able to operate on Eclair because the VoiceSearch isn't the version Gingerbread's keyboard runs.

    *MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!
    *Should work on ALL rooted 2.2 Android devices.
    *Droid X and 2 users, see note after instructions. (Some DX users are seeing miniature versions. Again, MAKE A BACKUP.)
    *Won’t work on 2.1. You need the newest Voice Search app from the market.
    *Auto-correct is not working properly.
    *Good idea to make a back up of your LatinIME.apk from your /system/app folder in case something goes wrong.
    *Note* – DX users, “In Clockwork, go to mounts and storage>mount system and then back to install .zip from sd card”.

    I am in love with this keyboard. Orange is my favorite color, it's like someone designed it for me!

    I am sad that you can't do the slide down to hide the keyboard though.

    Can't wait for 2.3 roms on the OG Droid.

    Can you activate vibrate when pressed in the new keyboard?

    I just found the answer to my own question. If I would have just remained patient and done a little searching, I would have found the settings without having to submit this reply.

    Yes, it's in the settings. Go to settings > language and keyboard > Android Keyboard and you'll see where you can add vibrate and sound if you wish along with other settings.

    Just added it to rooted DInc with Froyo...works great so far! Gonna take alil time getting use to other than the stock Sense keyboard, and I do like the preloaded smileys on the Sense keyboard but the GB keyboard seems to be an overall better virtual typing experience.

    I love it! I have it on my Vibrant, can't wait to try it on my Nexus.

    1. How and what exactly do I back up?
    2. For DX users: Is the space bar still tiny and not as big as the Nexus S version?

    I'm running a stock DInc with 2.2 and had no issues. I would say first, obviously, be sure to download the correct version (i.e. 2.1 or 2.2 keyboard). Once you install the .apk, Settings > Language & Keyboard and check the box next to Gingerbread Keyboard. After that, go to a text box, like in your messaging app, and long press, select input method and Gingerbread Keyboard. That should be all it takes.
