    5-Row Keyboard for iPad has always been one of my favourite jailbreak tweaks so it really broke my heart when it was not updated for iOS 5.x. However, Hiraku recently released his iKeywi tweak for the iPad, finally allowing us to enjoy that 5-Row goodness in iOS5. I honestly still can't believe Apple don't provide this as standard, but bygones… :)

    iKeywi HD for iPad costs $2.99 from Cydia, and looks like this…

    One of the great improvements over the old tweaks is the inclusion of cursor / arrow keys on the soft keyboard at last! ;)
    The fifth row can be customised using the Settings app and you have complete control over the standard and alternative row layouts…

    Finally, the tweak works really well with "Color Keyboard HD" too!…

    I hope you enjoy your 5-Row keyboard on IOS 5.x courtesy of iKeywi HD for iPad! :D

    I fond that the cursor keys don't work if you don't have somewhere to go. So, for example, I can't use the right arrow to go further to the right than where I've already typed. And, the down arrow won't go down from this sentence as I type it - though the up arrow will go up.

    Hope that makes sense - and helps. :)

    EDIT: Huh. It appears that the arrow keys DON'T work with this forum (on the Tapatalk app, anyway). Odd. Maybe because it's a "live" feed? Cause it works in the Notes app...

    I've installed iKeywi HD. Now, when I try to open a document in Quickoffice, it starts to open and then closes. I've restarted my iPad with no change. I then uninstalled iKeywi, and my Quickoffice docs open as they should. I re-installed iKeywi and the problem returned.

    Thanks for any advice you might have.

    You should have one on the ipad allready. Go to Settings/General/Keyboard/International Keyboards/Add New Keyboard then scroll down to French.

    Yes I know, but I was asking about iKeywi HD: does the 5-row iKeywi HD keyboard come with a French (AZERTY) version?

    i encourage you to carefully read the description pane in Cydia. It explains the restrictions clearly including the fact that AZERTY is not yet supported...

    hi Marilyn, thanks for a quick reply, I've tried loads of apps now including notes and the cursor keys don't work with any of them, I'll check my settings and see if I've clicked something off.

    EDIT: just been into the ikeywi settings and done a respring, now working on everything ha ha

    Thanks for the tip, was having the same problem. For those that are also having the problem, open settings and sroll down the left hand side and look for the ikeywi HD icon (it's not on the general-keyboards section) and just hit the 'save and respring' button and you should be good to go. I so missed the 5 row keyboard!
