    Keyboard issues since update?

    Advertisement



    Has anyone else had a problem with their keyboards and long press options since the update? I can't get a lot of the punctuation without having to hit the shift key. I have to manually tap the backspace button to delete a sentence. And I can't type a ":" in the browser bar for my debug option that I use.

    Side note: if you want full desktop browsing with sites that switch to mobile automatically, set up a bookmark for "about :debug" and click it, then tap the nav bar and hit enter. Then hit your settings- debug- ua string- desktop.

    My Xoom is not, but I read some people are having that problem. I'd try a factory reset. Also had that problem when thumb keyboard first released and it drove me crazy!

    The about;debug is a great tip for non-rooted Xoom users. It definitely works.

    Yeah, so I tried the factory reset and the long press worked until setup was done. I want to say its something in my settings but I wouldn't know what it was. I've looked at everything

    I just figured out what the problem was. If you are having this problem, go to settings- accessibility- and turn off accessibility if its checked. The only thing I didn't look at before I did the factory reset. Could have saved me a lot of hassle and some money.

    No I don't root. I'm afraid I'll mess stuff up and won't be able to fix it. I spent way too much money to screw this up. A bunch of pictures, videos, and music I can live with. Easily restored. $600 paper weight, not too appealing to me.
