    Default changing rom while keeping phisical keyboard support

    So im thinking of switching the default rom of the xperia mk16 for touchwiz,but this phone has a phisicial keyboard,and I know support for it its not native,is there any way that I can switch to touchwiz while keeping the support?,im not sure if I need some app in particular or something,I know Samsung has its own Galaxy Ch@t that has a keyboard,so I was wondering if I would have to get the specific rom for that phone.

    I don't think that's possible. All ROMs are made for specific models, and porting them to other devices can easily lead to a bricked phone.

    Have you found a TouchWiz ROM for your phone? I haven't seen any phone have the "skin" of another phone, other than a stock Android ROM.

    Flashing a ROM not meant for your device will brick it.
