To be honest, I gave up - already but it's good to have our PPCW.Net Forum where you guys continusly try the impossible! :-)
This time it was RSargeant who posted the following lines:

I had previously bought an Elekson Flex keyboard for my wife's i-mate Smartphone2, only to find that the driver was not suitable and it would not work. Somehow I never got around to taking it back!

After carefully following the instructions elsewhere in this site to update the ROM from to the latest (07/2004) version, I am delighted to be able to report that the Elekson Flex driver available in the download section on this forum installed and works flawlessly!

So I took my i-Mate Smartphone out of my pocket as well and installed the driver you can get from the PPCW.Net Download section and yes, it's true - it works on my phone as well! :-)

For me, the soft keyboard was one of the coolest accessories for my i-Mate Smartphone and I was pretty "shocked" when I found out that it wasn't working anymore with the final ROM of the Smartphone2 (but with the never released Beta ROM only). Therefore I wasn't able to use it for more than half a year and I wrote E-Mails to get support for it but without success. Now - where it is back it makes my Smartphone2 even more valuable and I want to thank RSargeant for not giving up the testing! Well done!

On a side note I have to admit that it is still not working 100 % correct, for instance the number keys have to be pressed several times to get the wanted number (it behaves like the number key on your phone) and also the short-cut keys to launch PIE, Inbox, etc aren't working correct. However, that's something I can live with! :-)

Cheers ~ Arne
