    This is a fix for people who updated the Glossy Keyboard and Chromium Keyboard in Cydia, and now have a key board that is missing the buttons but is still functional. There is also a POSSIBLE FIX FOR CORRUPTED OTHER.ARTWORK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

    1) Open Cydia

    2) Select "Manage" tab

    3) Select "Packages"

    4) Find Chromium/Glossy keyboard in the file list

    5) Select it and open its information page

    6) Select "Modify" in the upper right hand corner

    7) Select "Remove", and then "Confirm" on the next page. Wait for it to uninstall

    8) Select "Return to Cydia" at the bottom

    If you already have Customize installed, skip to step 13. If not, follow the directions straight through

    8) Select "Search" tab

    9) Type in "Customize" (No quotes, of course)

    10) Select the package called "Customize"

    11) Selct "Install" at the upper right hand corner, and then "Confirm" on the next page

    12) After it is finished installing, first select "Return to Cydia" at the bottom

    13) Exit Cydia

    DO NOT RESPRING OR REBOOT MANUALLY

    14) Open Customize

    15) Select "Customize Images/Sounds"

    16) Select the "Artwork" folder

    17) Select "Keyboard Common"

    18) Select "OriginalBackup", and apply it from the "Apply" button at the top right hand corner

    19) Return to the "Artwork" folder

    20) Now, select "KeyboardLatin" and repeat the step 18

    If your iPod reboots here, don't worry. It still worked. If it does not reboot by itself, then reboot manually.


    TL;DR version for smart peoples:

    Uninstall Chromium/Glossy Keyboard, then close Cydia. Don't respring or your iPod will fail. Open Customize, and then find the Artwork folder. Replace KeyboardCommon and KeyboradLatin with the "OriginalBackup" files. Reboot, and voila!

    *POSSIBLE CORRUPTED OTHER.ARTWORK FIX*

    Return to the "Artwork" folder, and this time select "OtherArtwork", and repeat step 18.

    This is not confirmed, as I did not need to do this fix.

    Applying KeyboardLatin without any of the other steps worked for me.

    Thanks for a quick fix. Was dreading the thought of restoring again.

    and ifyou uninstall customize after its all done, the artwork will remain.
