how to add T9 numeric pad input to HTC Magic

If, for some reason your phone does NOT come with the T9 numeric pad input, here’s what you can do.

As from: http://haykuro.theiphoneproject.org/?p=213

http://www.droiddeveloper.com/hrbuilds/htc_ime.zip or from me

$ adb remount
$ adb push libt9.so /system/lib/libt9.so
$ adb push HTC_IME.apk /system/app/HTC_IME.apk
$ adb shell reboot

If that’s too hard for you to understand, do this instead:

Download the files from above.

  1. Unzip htc_ime.zip
  2. Extract HTC_IME.apk, and put it on your phone
  3. From AndroidStore, download Astro File Manager or Apps Installer, and install the .apk file.
  4. Reboot
  5. Viola~

Settings, Locale & Text, Touch Input settings, Keyboard types, Phone Keypad. And yes, if you need to know, I used the 2nd method instead of the first, though I ought to have backed it up first since there’s so much of this phone I’m not sure of yet. *selfstab*
