    Default Disable keyboard auto-correction on 2.0
    Hi,

    now that I have a jaibreaked iPhone with 2.0 firmware, I would like to disable the keyboard auto-correction feature. The method that worked before (for firmware 1.x) do not seem to work anymore.

    Does anybody have a solution?

    The old way doesn't work anymore, but there is a temporary solution which worked for me. I simply renamed "TextInput_de.bundle" to "TextInput_de.backup" to disable german auto-correction.

    until we find the way to switch it on/off you can do the following:
    under /System/Library/Textinput/ rename specific bundle for the keyboard that you are using
    example:
    if you want to disable Autocorection on an English keyboard US or GB, rename (or backup on your hard drive) file "TextInput_en.bundle"

    Just install "OpenSSH" with Cydia.

    Afterwards, connect with a SFTP-Client of your choice (Transmit, Cyberduck,...) to your iPhone. There is a little SSH-HowTo in the main screen of Cydia which explains it, too.

    Thanks Almeida.

    I renamed the "TextInput_en.bundle" to "TextInput_en.backup" and it disabled auto correction.

    For those having a hard time finding it, its located at /System/Library/TextInput/

    This stops the double-tap space for full stop? Anyone else found this?

    Any idea for a workaround?

    Anyone knows the name of the app in installer 4 which disables the autocorrection?
    And is it also equipped with an extra preferences-item? like the old "KB"-app for 1.x.x.

    You can use the "CTOGGLE" app in Cydia.
