I have hebrew keyboard layout on both my computer and my android keyboard that is in use but it wouldn't let me pass the letters. Any chance to fix this?

Any change to fix this?

Probably not. Only ASCII and some accented characters work.

Except if someone finds a technical solution ;)

@rom1v rom1v added the input events label Mar 11, 2018

I used to have the same issue but it disappeared through some "practice":

  1. Turn to AOSP and type some numbers like 1234 (that works fine).
  2. Type some letters. If it doesn't work, press shift key several times. (You may say a bunch of letters "crowding in".
  3. Turn to GBoard or other keyboards. It will work fine if you are lucky :)

One possible technical solution is to write a customized input method manager. Vysor(an scrcpy alternative) does this.
The input method manager can be installed and enabled by adb, without user interaction.

+1 on this. Wanted to write in Hebrew too, but failed.
Are you sure it's impossible to use adb to pass unicode keys ?

@rom1v One of the possible options could be to create a custom keyboard, like NULL keyboard that I described here: #181, but with an ability to Input and Copy/Paste unicode. Probably not the easiest option, but at least something if there's no system API for such things.
AFAIK, KDEConnect installs own keyboard.

I would prefer without this workaround...

I strongly hope this will be fixed soon
