I was finally able to build my own AOSP image, and I want to debug some problem with the software keyboard. However, the default emulator has a physical keyboard emulated, and I don't know how to disable it.

I found a solution. I don't know if it is the best place to do such a modification, but I was able to edit the default emulator skin at
