    There's wrong physical keyboard mapping on Milestsone with 1.9.30.

    Problem can be solved by adding line
    to file /system/etc/rootfs/default.prop but it would be nice to have proper mapping just after rom update.

    HOWTO edit file with VI in OR console
    #cd /system/etc/rootfs
    #vi default.prop
    scroll down to the end of the dokument which becomes visible as you scroll and on the end press kex "i" that puts you in edit mode
    Go to the end of the line and pres enter to create a new line in wich you enter
    persist.sys.keypad_type=euro_qwerty (or qwertz if you have that kind of keyboard)
    then press menu key and delete key together what should get you out of edit mode (you can check it by scrolling to the last character in a line and the prompt should stay on that character and not on the free space behind it)
    Now enter :wq (colon ":" tells "vi" that you will enter a command "w" is for write and "q" is for quit)
    reboot your system and that should do it :)
