Post updated with 808 PureView installation (23 June 2012)

First step Preparation
I found out that first step is not needed, please try to proceed to second step directly on Belle/Belle FP1
Since I have no idea where to download official baidu input, you may need this hack to perform this operation : source , credit to CODeRUS too

Second step Installing the Baidu
1. Download and Install official baidu input from the original source, choose your model : http://shouji.baidu.com/input/download.html?p=nokia&t=808
2. After installation, you will be prompted, choose "yes" (Left most choice) all the time)
3. You will be brought to Baidu Menu, exit the menu and open up Messaging app's keyboard. Click on "Du" icon
4. Click an icon with "+" symbol on it.
5. Tick/Enable options as below

Below are the old step
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


NOTE:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «



Third Step Using Baidu for your daily life
1. Download Baidu 2.1 themes.zip to your computer at here : source
3. Extract the content, and transfer Apple Big Style.bds file into your phone's mass storage (any folder).
4. Open up your phone, use file manager to browse and click on the desirable skin and Baidu Input will detect it automatically.
5. Open up messaging app, you will see your waaaay better VKB skin!

Congratulations! here are sample! Apple style (big button) !

Fourth Step Editing Baidu skin as your wish
1. *.bds file can be extracted using winrar/winzip


Hope this post wont go anywhere, as Im spending half of year time to search this information and compile it in one post to rescue Nokia Belle users smile.gif

updated fourth step a little,

Anybody have any findings please post here smile.gif

[1] there is land, port, res and info.txt.

i believe land refers to landscape, while port refers to portrait. not sure about res.

[2] Files en26s.txt for example refers to image file inside res folder..which is the button shocking.gif

[3] the .til file can be open using notepad LOL. still trying to understand these files connection.

but one thing for sure, dailymobile.se damn stingy to share knowledge

Have you tried dextr? So far so good it fits my need for a virtual keyboard.

You could watch this:


I could definitely recommend it to you. If you want more, try it out a free beta version by download it on play.google.
