    If this is a keyboard theme that runs under Winterboard, keyboard themes haven't worked since 3.0 firmware was released.

    iKeyEx was updated to iKeyEx 3 0.2 a few days ago. The new version supposed to work with firmware 3.0 and above. There was also a slight version update posted to the Project Home site just 6 hours ago (version 0.2a). Here's the link:

    I have firmware 3.1.2 with iKeyEx 3 v0.2 and and am testing the Dvorak Keyboard for you. It seems to work. See attached snapshot:

    Dvorak - one handed

    Hi there, I use Dvorak for the right hand (one handed layout) as I only have the use of one hand. I'd like to use it on an iPad as i touch type with the layout, but Apple hasn't added the layout to iOS yet!! I was thinking about getting an iPad and jailbreaking to get round this, however i'm trying to find out first if the layout is available on Cydia. Would you have come across the one handed layouts when you were looking into Dvorak for two handed folks?

    Thanks for the help.

    Cheers

    Qwerty keyboard is so widely used, why try to be different by using a lesser known one

    Dvorak one handed

    I only have the use of one hand, and have learned the Dvorak layout for the right hand to touch type with speed. I too would like to find out if there is a keyboard layout available on Cydia to install on a jailbroken iPad. If anyone has seen one around, it would be good to know. Its about the only reason I have to jailbreak the iPad, so if the layout is not available, there is not much point in going to the trouble of jailbreaking it in the first place. :)

    Cheers
