    Is there a way to turn off the predictive text function on the Enote?
    I find it slows down typing and makes writing a pain, especially when you need to write a url.
    The predictive text function would be useful if the word list were bigger, but it's not. Is there a way to add words to the list?

    To clear Text Prediction:

    1. /usr/local/eTablet/remount.sh
    2. mv "/eTablet/var/ime/database_en_back.db" (to somewhere else).
    3. killall virtualkeyboard
    4. run virtualkeyboard (restart consoleq for example)
    Does it still learn and add new entries based on your input?
    I don't have time to check this now.

    I tried moving the file to my SD card. After that I restarted the player and got stuck at bootloader. It completely bricked.:(

    Worked for me.
    After the procedure i have used VKBD several times. The system created new empty "database_en_back.db" file. Maybe that is the reason? Have you performed "reboot" just after moving the original "database_en_back.db"?
    Sorry for bricking your device.
    I'll check it in free time and eventually add "restart VKBD before reboot" to the instruction.

    I manually moved database_en_back.db using the File explorer app.
    Is that perhaps what I did wrong?

    Did you type your commands into the Console or via Telnet?

    the Console

    I'll back up my eeenote and reproduce the procedure after 12 H.

    I tried again, did a reset directly after erasing the file and now it works fine.
    I don't know what happened the first time.

    I have noticed that the op system on the Enote can be a little delicate to change. Every once in a while I brick the system just by installing the Stardict app, and then when I unbrick it, the same app installs without problems.

    I have just checked both scenarios :
    1. instant reboot after moving the file
    2. restarting VKBD, after that reboot]

    I've spotted no problems. ;]

    Protip : sometimes the device just hangs on boot. Second reboot ( using reboot button ) usually helps. I know it's strange. Have no idea where it comes from.

    Sorry for late answer.
