Thanks to Nutzy19 for this tip.

hold down the menu button, the keyboard pops up for you. so if you open an app or page that has the typing field at the top for example, you dont have to reach up there and tap inside to get the keyboard which i noticed needs to be done sometimes. you just hold menu key and keyboard pops up.

This may be well known already, but just in case....

The Home and Search physical buttons also support dual input like the Menu button.

Hold the Home button to get the task / recent app switcher.

Hold the Search button to activate a voice search from (almost) anywhere, anytime.

Great thread! Very useful and should be stickied if you are willing to keep it updated.

One thing, unrevoked has been fixed so that the root is now "sticky" and will remain after a reboot. The version that was not stickied was only available for a few hours but was removed and the new "sticky" version was uploaded shortly thereafter.

Very good thread, and holding the home button is a very good tip. thanks for that! I've been trying to find the best way to switch between different tasks I'm doing on my phone.
