2.1 Android Keyboard apk (with Voice to Text)

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UQC37DJC
This will install the 2.1 keyboard with voice to text working (on any text input that uses the default keyboard).
The original keyboard will not be affected - you will simply have 2 Android Keyboards to choose from in Settings > Language and keyboard (plus Swype, if you have it or install it)

You need to be rooted (which only requires putting an update.zip file on your Droid and rebooting, basically - follow step 2 in that post by parkjam to root).

To install the keyboard apk, unpack the file and put the VoiceSearchWithKeyboard.apk on your sdcard. Mount system r/w and put the VoiceSearchWithKeyboard.apk in the /system/app folder. chmod it 644 and mount system as r/o and reboot.

If you don't know how to do that, then follow these steps:
1. Put the VoiceSearchWithKeyboard.apk on your sdcard (if you used usb, unplug it when you're done)
2. Get Root Explorer from the Market.
3. Using Root Explorer, navigate to the sdcard folder and long press on the VoiceSearchWithKeyboard.apk and click "Move"
4. Navigate to the /system/app folder
5. Click the button up top that says "Remount as R/W"
6. Click the button on the bottom that says "Paste"
7. Now you need to set the permissions on that file (chmod 644): Long press on the VoiceSearchWithKeyboard.apk and click Permissions. Check User Read and Write, Group Read, and Others Read. Uncheck everything else and click Ok.
7. Click the button up top that says "Remount as R/O"
8. Reboot, you're done

After rebooting, in Settings > Language and keyboard, you will have Android Keyboard listed twice, and they'll both be checked/enabled.
The first one is the original and the second one is the one with voice search. Uncheck the first one. If you have Swype installed, it will still work if you select it (but you probably won't want to!).

It works great (major understatement). No issues that I know of.
