Hi everybody

I have not been satisfied by the original look of the N9 keyboard. It looks too "soft" for my taste so I took the task upon myself the other day to skin the keyboard to my liking. Thought I would share my theme here so that those who wants to can install it on their device.

First of all download the .zip with the files from here:

or glossy version:

(It's also attached to the thread)

Installation instructions:

Extract the contents of the .zip into /home/user/MyDocs/

so the folder in ~/MyDocs/ will be named N9_keyboard_theme inside which there are 7 images +1 file +1 default folder

Everything is case-sensitive so be careful.

In terminal as root you will have to do:

sh /home/user/MyDocs/N9_keyboard_theme/

(or sh /home/user/MyDocs/N9_keyboard_theme_glossy/ if you're installing my glossy theme)

The above will apply the layout (then reboot for it to apply).

If you want to revert to original theme do this in terminal as root:

sh /home/user/MyDocs/N9_keyboard_theme/default/


NEW: Glossy version

Regular version
