    1) http://install.preware.org

    2) Install the Virtual Keyboard from the Patches section

    3) Open the web brower, tap twice in the gesture area, wait for 5 seconds (do not tap while waiting).

    The biggest problem I have is that the back key doesn't work half the time. If the backspace worked more reliably I'd use it a lot more.

    Here are a couple of tricks i use to keep this VK from wildin out

    1. When entering things like login in and putting in your password, tap your VK off the screen before you enter your password. Then double tap it back up.

    2. Keep your slider keyboard out cause the delete and enter button just don't work all the time. And, the Orange button doesn't have the same functuality as the physical one.

    3. If the VK won't disappear after a tap, change your screen orientation two times. Once the VK falls and gets stuck with a corner of the keyboard showing, tap it off again.

    Once I got used to doing these things, the VK became alot easier to use. I'm still practicing on this baby so any other tips are welcomed and needed here. Happy Holidays yall.
