Unhappy Can you get B&N keyboard back

Is it even possible? I loved the keyboard, but lost it after root. Is there any way?

Nook Color Tools has an option to switch keyboards.

I know the keyboards thing, I'm asking if you can get the pre-root keyboard back post-root.

You'll be able to tell if autonooter replaced the stock keyboard. See this post.

Yes, It's The Old Keyboard

When you use Nook Color Tools to switch keyboards, if you select "Multi-Touch Keyboard" the original BN keyboard comes back (mine is also dated 1 Aug 2008 in system/apps). I nootered with the rooted 1.1 update.

Did you use Autonooter or the Rooted 1.1 - I think it makes a difference since Autonooter incorporates the Droid X keyboard in the ROM.

Also, check the file date - I think that the keyboard always has to be named latinme.apk but that does not mean that the files are identical - my latinme.apk is 3,261,628 bytes with a timestamp of 01 Aug 2008 and gives me the original BN keyboard when I select multitouch in Nook Color Tools (and reboot after selection). If you don't have this file then that's why you get the DroidX keyboard

Scion, thanks so much for posting the file.

Rasenganfan, were you able to install it? I out it in my system /apps folder, changed the permissions, and tried to install. It went through the motions, but then gave me the error that the app didn't install.
