Hello!
I have completely wiped my SGS2 and flashed the latest ICS MIUI (2.3.30). I have encountered two bugs with the keyboards:
  • There are two "Android keyboard" apps. They can't be disabled in the IME settings.
    • Version 4.0.3 - 2.3.30 : I guess it's the one from MIUI (because of the version number)
    • Version 4.0.4 - 255454
  • The samsung IME has problems with other languages/layouts
    • With the French language, the "z" key inputs a "y" (and "y" inputs a "z"). "z" is where "y" is on the US keyboard". However, when long pressing the "z" key to insert a special z derivative, it inputs the right character. In fact, it seems that the keyboard switches to a qwertz layout for all languages. For French from France it should have an "azerty" layout.
    • It has no dictionaries for languages other than English
Can someone confirm those issues? I posted screenshots with the relevant info. I don't think a logcat would be useful in this case, but I can provide one if needed.

My device info :
Model: Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100
MIUI version: 2.3.30 ICS (Full wipe before flash)
Radio : I9100XXKL1

EDIT: I removed the 4.0.3 Android keyboard with Titanium and I haven't had any problem yet.

This is how to submit a bug report. Thanks for following the guidelines and going above and beyond. You've provided enough information to pass some information on.

Yeah I'm a developer myself and I hate half-baked bug reports with vague information or rants probably as much as you guys do ;) Just one thing: I think it would be great to put a guide on how to use the logcat for beginners in the READ FIRST post or another sticky.

I hope this bug gets solved soon. In the meantime, I will try to remove one of the keyboards with Titanium.

Do you also have two android keyboards in the IME settings? And the layout issue?
The layout is ok and in the list of keyboards i have "Android keyboard" and the "Samsung ime". I think this something very simple to fix but I don't know how...
Do you think if i use titanium to backup the samsung keyboard working and install it in the new rom, will it work? Or any other suggestion?

So it seems like it's an isolated issue. Can a second person confirm that the two android keyboards bug does not affect his device, so the admin can close the bug? I will try to wipe and flash again this evening...
