smt I think Lenovo should learn from it:

Stylus with eraser, that may be the function from Wacom, but it#s very productive!

Lighter and thinner, yeah I know Thinkpad=robust, but it#s much better if you can hold it easier in one hand :D

So share your view about this new tablet with stylus. :D I saw some hands on video on Youtube and thought this could be a good alternative for our beloved TPT.

Hi guys, after I read GodfatherIP's topic about remapping hardware button, I have an idea of remapping the Keyboard Folio with German layout. The problem was Honeycomb regconised the keyboard as English layout in almost every input method, exept Flex T9, which is so annoying and laggy and Lenovo have no intention in fixing it.


- my "original" Generic.kl file
- The keychar map file Generic.kcm I got from Riffer in XDA-Dev through his solution for XOOM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1196776

thank you Riffer

Im not sure Riffer's update.zip could be modified with Lenovo original Generic.kl because I have not enough knowledge about how an undate.zip created. So that I used the method that GodfatherIP did to remap the hardware buttons. http://www.thinkpadtabletforums.com/thinkpad-tablet-root-hacks-mods-and-development/remapping-hardware-buttons/

thank you GodfatherIP


- Reboot the TPT in CWM, plug it in your PC with USB
- in CWM choose "Mounts and storage" then "mount /system"
- execute cmd.exe on your PC, check if your device correctly connected with "adb devices" and then put the commands in:

adb remount
adb pull /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl
adb pull /system/usr/keychars/Generic.kcm

move this two files to another place for backup, copy and overwrite the files I provide into your adb's default folder and then continue with the commands:

adb push Generic.kl /system/usr/keylayout/
adb push Generic.kcm /system/usr/keychars/
adb shell
chmod 644 /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl
chown system.system /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl
chmod 644 /system/usr/keychars/Generic.kcm
chown system.system /system/usr/keychars/Generic.kcm
adb reboot

- Now your TPT is rebooted, go into Settings/Language & Input/ and choose Android's default German keyboard as your input method and the Keyboard Folio responses exactly as a QWERTZ layout. I've tried it with some other input methods, for example Go Tieng Viet, an Vietnamese-input keyboard app and it recognise the correct keychar too.

Hope you german members can do it too and report if smt wrong appears.


try APP_SWITCH, I found some topic on the internet said that, but did not try :D

now hope some guru can overclock this tablet :X

Im using a screen protector too.its a german brand but quite similar to armorshield.If you make the tip smooth enough,there would be no scratch on the protector like mine.

Hi there!
Can you tell me which brand/url-couldn`t find something good here in good old austria ::)
br 2b2b

the brand name is Folix, and I choosed the "matte" version. There will be a litte color distortion, but it'
s normal for antiglare screen protectors.

np mate, I edited my post too :D

First of all that picture is not mine, thats why I put the source under it. And the glove named Smudgeguard, exactly like its main function.

So while I was waiting for the developers to make a full system palm-rejection for the TPT, I was used a Smudgeguard glove for sketching or noticing. As a Wacom user, I bought it because it's originally a glove for artists who want smooth movements on their tablets or to keep my hand clean while sketching with pencils. And now it plays as a palm-rejection device :))

it cost less than 20$ but very useful. Worth a try :D

I was trying to pull some files from sys folder (for example /sys/ntrig/config_sensor) using the adb pull command but the operation is not permitted. Has someone any idea how can I access those files, may be very useful in tweaking our TPT.

Now TPTs are our main noticing, sketching device! And a more precise pen is always a must. I decide to mod the big bold pen tip. Now it's at the size of a ball-point pen tip.

- Rotation tools (dremel)
- sanding sponge
- sanding paper at smooth grades (I used 1000 and 2000 grit)
- polish cream and polish bit sponge

First I take out the pen tip (dont worry you have 2 spares in the box  8) ), put it in the rotation tool.
Then with a slow speed (dont go fast or the plastic will melt down) I've sanded it with the sanding sponge til I saw the metal stick. Then fine sanding with sanding paper. The metal stick is not so hard, you can use the sponge and sanding paper to make a round shape at the tip. After checking the roundness, polish it with the cream so it cant make scratches on your screen :D

Using rotation tool is a must, because it keeps the pen tip in round shape and make perfect profile.
Hope the post give you guys fun and more love with our TPTs, sorry for the broken English :D
