Question about HTC Tilt 8900 Smartphone

Want to replace Tilt keyboard with HTC keyboard..can it be done?

I have replaced my ATT Tilt keyboard with an HTC OEM keyboard (blue digits instead of silver keys) but it appears only a few of the keystrokes for certain letters work. I have tried to install the HTC keyboard CAB but it did not make any difference. Any ideas?

    Is it suitable? what does that mean. It does fit and uses all current connections. Is that what you mean?

  • Todd Kuoni Jun 30, 2008

    The OEM keyboard fits all the connections. So how would it not be 'suitable'...

  • Todd Kuoni Jun 30, 2008

    Thanks..but I see after closer look I had a QWERTZ keyboard with Entf (instead of Del) so it look like they sent me a German keyboard. So I don't know if that is why or if it is just a bad one since I only get a few letters working. I would think all the letters would work, they just might be the wrong mapped letter. The fix you gave me was for ATT Tilt keyboard, not a replacement keyboard (with just blue numerals instead of the silver keys). If you can come up with another solution, let me know, otherwise, I may just have to replace with the old ATT keyboard.

Hi-

Did you check for any downloadable updates for your HTC OEM keyboard? Which model did you get?

Here are some points when instlling the CAB

  • It's important that you uninstall the older cab that was posted here (if you even installed it), then soft reset. Then install the new one and soft reset one more time. That should do it.
  • Do not unzip/decompress this .cab file on your desktop and move the files over to your device. It won't work. You need to copy the .cab (as is) onto your device and tap to install.

Screen replacement instruction for HTC 8925 Tili


If and only if your phone is out of warranty then do this. Because if it is not then this will void any warranty you have.
You can buy a new screen and digitizer for $44 and replace it yourself. It is an in depth process but there is a video for the entire routine available here http://www.blackberry8100parts.com/ATT-TILT-LCD-Replacement-Screen-W-Touch-Screen-Digitizer-TD028TTEB3_p_0-70.html and detailed disassemble here http://e5hopa.bay.livefilestore.com/y1prDuqyG18n409vDiyijtdDx3VEkxuBoHIfhnaCa9gDjqIsl6XCnMV9_ymKoEnUmDq1Ms_icNzSGY/HTC_TILT_8925_KAISER%20SERVICE%20MANUAL.pdf?download. I have done the replacement and it took me about 20 minutes. It cost 44 for the screen and Lowes had the torx T4, T5, T6 drivers for under 10 bux. Well below the cost of a new phone.
