Hey guys, I've done at least some testing regarding iOS 6...
It's kind of looking like the CK tweak may need to be updated to take care of the new Key and kb top Highlights...
I tried guessing at all possible naming I could think of with no luck.
I've also noticed some Symbols must have newly shared references, like some Emoji keys with image based themes...
Here's hoping we get a tweak update, or at least an update to the "known iOS code"...
Also, image based CK themes will need their Landscape images completely re-designed for iP5... The fun begins...

I e-mailed the developer about any updates to CK HD and he hasn't replied.
Seems like it's abandoned.

Hopefully we'll see an update, or at least some new info on the Project Site... There are a couple of noticeable new and/or changed iOS kb "parts" to get the plist lasso around, maybe that'll coax a little time spent...
Since I'm posting... Anyone with an iPhone 5, and are familiar through normal use, with an instance they see of the Landscape NumberPad... Some Passcode Entry instance that allows orientation switching I guess?
I always had a copy of CK_Tester that I kept operational thru iOS 5, but it's not working on 6.1... That app was the only way I could get to a Land NumberPad...
If anyone actually knows, could you take a screen shot of it with No Color Keyboard theme armed?
HUGE thanks in advance!!!

Hi, Jahooba pointed me this way to see what i could do about getting the color keyboard landscape mode fixed for the i5
02-10-2013, 09:09 PM #466
Yeah, every image-based Color Keyboard theme will need a new version for i5, with all Landscape images needing to be redone from scratch in most cases...
At first glance, I thought they just used the same i4 configuration of keys, and only extended the background... But in typical Apple fashion, they made all keys wider... but not wide enough to fill the entire canvas... weird. There are also many key alignment eyesores if you take a close look at the new native i5 Land Kbs... So silly. R.I.P.S.J
Anyway, there's a literal mountain of updating to do... I have many I'll be updating myself including Ntech, auros, IO, XiD, WP7CK, PhatBooks... but I'll try to get a sample model posted as soon as I can to try and help others who want to update...
02-10-2013, 09:12 PM #467
Cool, if you're doing Ntech i'm not even going to try, i have a headache already lol. Do you already have the stock keyboard images and such you'd need for the i5? J said you didn't have one yourself and i'd be happy to provide them if you need

I'll keep everyone posted as to i5 updates!
@Julieebean74: Hey, I'm sure we can get you set back up...
Did the theme you used have "keys" that we're visible, and just the Background behind the keys was transparent...? Or more like there was only the Text visible?
Let me know any more details about what it looked like if you can!

IP4, IOS 6.1: Same issue with the key highlights and background images for landscape and portrait do not show anymore (even though I can select them from the settings). Got a custom background for my Pages theme which I made myself and which worked on my previous IOS 5.01 JB.
02-11-2013, 02:39 PM #472
Yeah, the new "highlights" on the sides of the keys and bottom of the Spacebar seem to be new parts that are either named differently than the dozens of educated guesses I've taken so far, or are going to actually require an update to the Color Keyboard Tweak to get control of them in the plist...
As far as the Background images, did you have your CK theme pulling a single BG image for Portrait, and one for Landscape, included in the Theme folder and plist?
I hadn't noticed any problems with making the native BG transparent, or calling BG images via the plist or Settings.app...
Let me know if you can, exactly how you were set up. Happy to help if possible!
02-11-2013, 02:53 PM #473
No background image currently in the plist (although I tried calling them that way and also copied the two images in the theme folder where the plist is held as I wasn't sure where CK looks for images called from the plist).

As everyone knows, the iOS kb is made up of all code created parts, and any images used (whether plist or Settings app applied), reside under all those code created parts, and said parts need to be made transparent in order to see the image underneath...
I didn't get at first that what's broken is the functionality that the Settings app BG image application used to provide... automatically making the iOS Code Gradient BG transparent for us when images were armed...
That stinks, and should be fixed for average users who just like to mix it up or do their own thing for sure...
But in the meantime, I can edit your plist for you if you like, so that it makes the iOS code BG transparent, and also calls your 2 images right from the Theme's folder, where you had tried to put them (that was correct).
If you can post a copy of your plist, or send me a copy at:
I'd be happy to help out if desired...
Unfortunately as far as the Key highlights, we'll have to wait for an appearance from the true CK Master...
P.s. I've heard talk that CKHD is incompatible with iOS 6.1...?
Anyone else that has seen this to be true (or not)?

Change the space bar to whatever you want it to say
Ok so every jailbreak that comes out I always try to find a way to change the space bar to my own custom word. I figured it out on this latest version 6.1 and have attached pics to show the results and the path you need to go through to get the desired result.
In ifile you go to system/library/TextInput/TextInput_en.bundle then open that file with the plist option scroll down to where is says UI-Space and change it to whatever you want. Obviously if your language is something other than en (english) you would choose that file instead. Hope some people get some use of this, I know its a silly tweak but I figured I would share anyway!!!!!

I've got problems with auros CK not having all parts changing. I need to look into the matter. Perhaps do I need a reinstall in Cydia cause some images might be missing :-/ I don't think Cydia would allow partial installation though...
I'll try putting this on my fresh i4S instead to test as soon as my sim is activated. Not having Wi-Fi at home hurts, and that network my old i4 currently is on is very poor in the deep far-East French countryside.The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.
The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.
