I don't think it can be done on 3.1.2, sorry.

Your probably not getting responses because it is a question that is asked frequently.

Just to let everyone know, I got the I'm using the beta iKeyEx with the 5-row-qwerty, and "NumLock Keyboard" add-ons and they work. The 5-row comes up by default, and I tap the Globe icon to switch.

I have a 3GS-32GB with 3.1.2 Blackra1n JB.

Both iKeyEx and 5-row I downloaded from here (the Project's Home page) and installed manually with "dpkg -i" commands.

File # 1: hk.kennytm.iKeyEx3-0.1-99j.deb
File # 2: hk.kennytm.5RowQWERTY-0.1-99h.deb

"NumLock keyboard" I got straight from Cydia.

YouTube has a number of videos to watch on installation (but I don't trust unknown Repos so I installed manually). One such video is here.

Remember, the latest iKeyEx is considered BETA so be very careful. All I can say is that I'm using it and it works. iKeyEx is a Mobile Substrate add-on (otherwise, I wouldn't have installed it in the first place as I'm using/hoping Mobile Substrate's safe-guards protects the phone in case of crash). When in doubt, research other success/fail stories and understand before installing.
