As the poster above stated, changing LOL to lol (I did it via iFile) does not work. It corrupts the file, and most text corrections are broken. When editing the file, changes do not take effect until a respring.
Even after changing lol back to LOL, the file was still corrupt. I can't stress backing up enough here.. it may prevent you from having to restore.

I was looking for something to edit the Unigrams file, i tried an hex editor, it worked BUT when i replace LOL with lol, the iPhone still put it in caps. I think there's something at the beginning of the dat file that says to do that. If i replace LOL with something like ;?! it works too (without caps naturally), but it's useless :P
So i tried many other things and i just found something that does the trick.
You have to install Inspell, and then add a new autocorrection rule. Put lol in the Input field and lol in the Output field (without caps at all). I don't know why but it works just perfect You can start a sentence with "Lol", of you can write "lol", the OS never changes it
Naturelly it works with WTF too :P

You can use, inspell and hunspell from cydia, they are both two great "apps". Check them out!

Inspell and Hunspell might be overriding the iPhone's built-in dictionary, but I still want to crack the code on the thing and be able to edit the native dictionary. This would be a killer app to have.
For anyone wondering:
I want to be able to edit the native dictionary directly, because that lets you take advantage of the predictive text's functions. Inspell allows EXCEPTIONS to the dictionary rules only. I can add "wtf" to Inspell's dictionary and it will not bug me when I type it anymore and correct it to WTF, sure.. but what if I type "wyf"? it still gets autocorrected to WTF by the native Apple engine. We should be able to control this.
