34 More people and groups modifying the iPhone keyboard

I’ve been looking for ways to alter the keyboard of the iPhone, and while looking, I found more people who were doing the same. I found three groups. In this post I’ll describe some of the people just altering the looks, and the way they do it.

On Fora like Hackint0sh, soon after the release of the iPhone, people started looking for ways to customize it. This article on iPhoneAtlas describes how to customize or ’skin’ the iPhone keyboard in the early firmware versions. Basically, it extracts the images form the UIKit.framwork, where the keyboard images are stored on the iPhone, into a format you can read on a PC or Mac. By editing and placing back these files, you ca then skin / customize the look.

    I sometimes have to send long emails while on the road but I don’t want to lug my laptop around. Would it be possible to use the Mac wireless keyboard to do editing? Will the iPhone recognize it?

    Hi, no that won’t work, there are no solutions like that yet, I think.
