If your phone is rooted I think that you can write your own keyboard layout. I'm using my own layout (on SGS I9000) for some Chinese blouetooth keyboard that I bougth recently. Layout files are in /system/usr/keylayout/ directory. Layout file that is used by my keyboard is Broadcom_Bluetooth_HID.kl. I think that layout used by built-in keyboard will be ...

A workaround at least while in the main launcher home screen is to press MENU and then NOTIFICATIONS. Else get HelloStatusBar and assign it to a shortcut key. You can also try Status bar Expander which uses a long-press on the menu key to drop the bar wherever you are. Naturally, YMMV as certain devices don't support these apps.

If the kernel wasn't compiled with /proc/config.gz support turned on, then the only sure way is to look at the source tree that was used to compile the kernel you're running. Copy the config.h file into your own source tree (or just use the original source tree) and run make menuconfig to set any new options you want.

I haven't used it in awhile, but something like AirDroid or the like could be helpful. I've heard of a handful of apps that work in the same fashion, exposing your Android device to a browser on the local network. With AirDroid running you can connect to it on your laptop using the IP address of the phone and a port number. Something like this: ...

Installing External Keyboard Helper Pro seemed to fix the keyboard shortcuts in Chrome. (I have no idea why it helps; this was completely unexpected. I was just installing it to get rid of the onscreen keyboard.)

After endless frustration with this issue, I have finally solved it without rooting the device. The solution for me has been External Keyboard Helper Pro, a $2.45 app on the play store (a demo version is also available). It detects when a bluetooth keyboard connects, and brings up a pop-up menu allowing you to select "External Keyboard" with two quick taps ...

Same problem here. I wound up rooting it. That alone won't let you disable (uncheck) the Samsung keyboard in Settings. I had to actually rename /system/app/SamsungIME.apk and /system/app/SamsungIME.odex. Then I was able to use Null Keyboard as the default. Crazy. I had no other reason to root it and you really shouldn't have to do this. To avoid this ...

Based on what I've read so far, this may be a bluetooth issue. Some people have fixed the issue by: using only 1 BT device.

It has a do not repeat option. Link to ...

USB Host Mode was introduced with Honeycomb (Android 3.1, see changelog. This clearly explains why it failed on your Gingerbread (2.3) device -- and also should answer your question whether it is supported by Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and above: Yes, it should work. As ov1d1u explained in his answer, it will require a "USB OTG cable" (OTG stands for ...

Looks like it has been reported as a SwiftKey bug for the Nexus 10 as well. Your best best is probably wait to get this fixed. I suggest you click the Vote button in their support site to increase the bug's priority. I just added 3 votes for you! NOTE: I don't use SwiftKey. I use GO Keyboard.

Found a possible solution from Android Central questions give it a shot. Specifically, this post says to do the following: When pairing the keyboard with your device, it will prompt you to enter a pin and say "try 0000 or 1234."

If your tablet doesn't provide a USB host port, you'll need an USB OTG adapter to connect your keyboard. There are many cheap USB OTG adapters on eBay and other electronics shops.

Yes, I had the same issue, it never worked for any PC USB Keyboards, except the one which we bought from DOMO, that nCase K6. That K6 worked perfectly (even to my PC). But a PC USB mouse worked on my DOMO Slate X3G. Buy a nCase K6 or, preferably you could install USB Host Controller from Play Store, as said by the first answer.. That should fix your issues.

Install USB Host Controller from Google Play, and run it.
