    I did what mletang did earlier when I got my keyboard reamed by the chromium keyboard update. Did this a while ago but it's always a good reminder that Customize can usually save you from a restore due to grahphisa issues.

    And I never knew an iPhone friendly version of MMi was available til now!

    temporary fix for me was to go to winterboard and you should see chromium stuff just tap them and hit the home button and you will have a somewhat functional phone again not perfect by anymeans....i can't wait to go home and fix it cuz it is really annoying hope this helps

    i installed and uninstalled a couple of times before i figured this out


    edit: putting back to original backup in customize works also

    Had the same problem. I just SSHed the 2 files (they are a decent size) back into the UIKite.framework folder, rebooted, and worked fine.

    i too can contend to using Customize to restore my backup keyboard, thus avoiding having to ssh those default keyboard images.

    whew, good call. i had the invisible keyboard also. fixed it by just enabling the chromium keyboard in winterboard. thanks for the heads up!!

    eek... it's definitely not fixed. the keyboard is sometimes visible now, but it's all kinds of screwy when you tap on a letter. dang it all..... does SSHing those files fix all of this? i'm at work right now so i won't be able to try it until later. customize doesnt seem to be helping either....

    here you go:
    In the Rar file you have Other.artwork, Keyboard-Common.artwork and Keyboard-Latin.artwork
    If you just need the keyboards then just copy the 2 keyboard files in root//System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework
    If you need the default Other.artwork file then copy that in the same folder as above.

    thank you SO much!! i figured out how to SSH at work and got my keyboard back!

    so now that my keyboard is back to the default and works again... is there a safe way to get it back to the chromium one? i like that better than the default.

    Yes, thanks for that massimo. What kind of irresponsible person puts a message "if this screws up your iPhone just restore though iTunes".

    Does anyone have a copy of the Chromium Keyboard artwork files which DON'T require Winterboard?

    my original backup in customize is chromium but i won't be able to access till i get home, i have keyboard and other artwork.

    **Billchase: thats what i meant when i said it makes it somewhat functional. when you tap a button on the keyboard you get a big box with 9 letters in it, it makes it a pain to type not to mention the keyboard is so slow to type with for some reason but the customize method worked perfect.

    Yeah sloppy programming indeed. This messed up my phone last night as well. I just got a response back from Planet-iPhones and apparently the updates weren't programmed to put the artwork back in its original folder after it was upgraded to support winterboard. Of course I got the but it worked fine on my phone when i tested it excuse. Yeah right then why is there a notice there telling people not to update it.

    theres now a "temporary warning" when you open cydia not to install or uninstall any of these files
    Yeah i already had chromium installed the minute i pwned the latest 2.0.1 There was an update yesterday for it, so i installed it and Lost all keyboard visual function, and also navigation bars. Not soon but 2 hours later there was a warning on Cydia and it was too late, I just repwned the phone gotta finish setting it up now. Ouch this hurt.
