    I like that VK,the only thing that this doesn't work on pres with 2.1. Freezes or luna reboot. Would be great if this somehow works

    I have no control over the launch mechanism, that's decided by Palm (since they created the VKB and integrated it within webOS, I just made the patch to easily enable use of it).

    i really like the VK for landscape or just a small search i would really love to use it, hope this can be patched in a way, i really wonder why it works on 2.0.1.

    I can't do anything about that. It is probably due to some modification Palm did to the Virtual Keyboard code, either intentional (to kill off the VKB without removing all of the code) or unintentional (since they never enabled it, we can only assume it is still very early and subject to lots of bugs).

    yeah i too experiance a freeze with 2.1 though I have been able to use it for small text messages so far, and as long as alot is not goin on it seems to work fine. Prob a bug in the coding of it between 2.0 and 2.1. Im hopin a developer can open up the VK code, and find out what causes the freeze in 2.1.

    Nobody can open the VKB code, at least not easily or legally. To fix the issue would require them to redistribute the entire Luna system, which (being compiled non-human-readable code; non-patchable code) would be illegal AND at risk for severe malware, IF somebody could get it decompiled and recompiled.

    Any chance of getting a way to enable/disable the patch itself? I'd like to be able to install the patch, but have it inactive until I want/need it (other than installing & removing the patch).

    I am on a pre plus and I've finally got it working. One thing I was wondering was if I could set it somehow where it didn't make a sound when I brought up the virtual keyboard?

    hey heres a question now you released the patch to enable it from your Pre 2 running 2.0.1 orignially correct? Now we all know that the patch worked on all Pre 2's with no problems, but had a issue with anyone running 2.1. My question is once you recieve the update on your Pre 2 to 2.1, maybe resubmit the patch code from the new version 2.1, hopefully whatever issue was with 2.1 will be cleaned up hopefully do to HP upgrading the nessacary componets to make it work on 2.1, once enabled.

    Ive been taking a guess that the original VK from a 2.0 Pre 2 was scritped to work for 2.0 devices only correctly. I've asked to see if someone who updated to the recently available 2.1 on there Pre 2, to resubmit the patch hoping that the 2.1 VK that was sent directly from HP will be enabled to work on all 2.1 devices, even the hacked ones.

    It sure is pretty. It crashed on my phone (Sprint Pre- 2.1) after typing about 4 characters though. Too bad.

    I still have to put Uber Kernel back on. Maybe that will help some.
