Xperia Keyboard_4Sony has updated its Xperia Keyboard to build number 6.4.A.1.24, which introduces a number of new features. This includes a larger spacebar to make it easier when typing and new language support (Armenian, Azerbaijani, Belarusian, Georgian and Tatar). Other features include a Phonepad layout on the Xperia Z2 and the addition of a numeric row to input numbers on tablets. The update is currently live through the Google Play Store.

If your phone is rooted, you can download the app here and move it to system/app. You will then need to set the correct permissions (RW-, R–, R–) and reboot your handset once completed. The keyboard has also been ported to run on devices with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above, head over to XDA to give this a try.

    Oh, this one… I wish they had that layout, but only for the numbers, with QWERTY. So, you press a button and it goes to that layout…

    hi everyone sorry 2 questions 1.How do i move it to system/app. do i set permissions (RW-, R–, R–) or whatever that is. im root but still rockie! sorry

  • ShinOrochiX

    Use a file explorer to cut/copy and paste the file to system/app. To set permissions you need a file manager that supports this, tap and hold the apk choose permissions and set to rw-r-r (read-write-read-read). Reboot and your done. You can use file managers like Es/Astro and many others but the best/simplest one i’ve found is this one…

    Pegasus, Aries and Leo: Three new handsets from Sony?

    The article is in potutuguese:

    “Reinforcing what is already expected, recently leaked information the codenames of three models of devices under development: Pegasus, Aries and Leo. The tip came through Chinese social networks and Weibo Digi-Wo. According to the rumor, the Leo will be the Xperia Z3, while Aries is the Xperia Mini Z3; the third, called Pegasus, refers both to an unknown device as the other update existing line.”

    If only they made this available for their older JB handsets

    Why the hell is it not available for my Xperia L? It’s still 6.0.A.0.0.9, obviously a very old version.

  • Arvigee

    how can i download it. it always say “theres a problem while parsing the package”. what will i do.

  • Andrii Omelianchuk

    Ok but i have a question: how can I set more than three active languages in Xperia 4.3 Android? In earlier versions I could set 4 languages and switch them any time I need. In 4.3 it says: only 3 active languages allowed = Any way to fix this?
