    More Keyboard and Dvorak Help

    I made a post a little while ago about remapping the dock keyboard to dvorak, (For reference... TF300T keyboard and dvorak)

    I'm trying to figure out if you can root, modify the keymapping to use dvorak, and then unroot by updating? Would that work?

    Thanks,

    You can unroot. You will get the update, but 1 of 2 things will happen:

    1 - because of the modified file, it may not let you update. Not sure how closely it checks all files before updating,

    2 - it does update, but you will no longer have a DVORAK layout.

    I would think that if I left the name of one of the keyboard profiles as the original, just changed the mapping, that the update would occur normally. I wouldn't think it will checksum every. single. file. in the /system before updating... now, if an update overwrote that file, i'd be back to square one...

    I think that it would overwrite the file during the update. Then you would have to re-root and place the file. Granted, using OTA Rootkeeper it is pretty simple to backup root and re-root.

    Yup, here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...otkeeper&hl=en

    Personally, I would just keep it rooted. Backup root before you update, backup your modified kl file, update, restore root, replace the file.

    Do you have a good link to rooting the tf300? I thought I had read somewhere that asus released a tool for it... but that might be mistaken.
