    new version swype problem...

    I just got the new swype from beta and it's giving me problems... their forum straight up sucks, so I thought I bring it up here...

    I'm on BB v0.2 right now, and I'm getting this error upon starting it (I actually got it once, after that, it wouldn't let me swype, just type normal)

    the error I got was '
    Swype is configured for another device and will operate with  limited functionality

    their FAQ has this recommendation for it

    hese errors are often shown when the Swype installer is terminated prematurely by the Android OS system activity manager as it tries to reclaim resources. Regardless of the cause, these steps should resolve the issue:
    • Uninstall both Swype and SwypeInstaller from your device - detailed directions here
    • Reboot your device
    • Close as many widgets from your desktop as possible
    • Download the SwypeInstaller
    • Use a task-manager to kill all non-essential running apps
      (If you are not familiar with the task-manager, you can skip, but you may see the error again)
    • Install and run the SwypeInstaller
    well that didn't fix it...

    can anyone help? i'm addicited to swype. it's a hassle typing without it now! seriously!!! lol

    Great, now we have an app recommending using task killer. I'm sure glad I don't use or need swype.

    Sorry, I know that doesn't help your problem, but it did bump your post.

    Your answer is in the first post here:

    closing thread due to others covering this already.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
