OK...I'm a n00b....fairly tech-savvy... I just found out yesterday that Swype is already on my DRoidX. I see other ppl on this thread talking about installers and all that. Is the Swype you are installing different than the one I can access from my Settings?
I signed up a while back, and got my invite a couple days ago. Haven't installed yet, but getting curious now. I am rooted and running froyo kangarade V5.0.9 Will I need to change anything to test Swype? I really am not in the mood to crash my phone and then have to fix it. Thanks for suggestions and yes, I will go look for known bugs etc. Just trying to find out the easy way.
I don't know about that rom specifically, since I run UD, but its a pretty straightforward process and shouldnt have any adverse effects on your phone. Just click the link in the email they sent you, it will download the installer, the beauty of the new installer is it walks you through the steps and makes everything super easy. Just follow the on screen directions. Then uninstall the installer, since its no longer needed, and you're good to go.
So those with older phones on the beta version get the updated versions, but those of us with the new phones, need to buy even new phones to get the updated versions? LOL.......great.
