    Swype Beta Problems

    I downloaded the Swype Beta Installer and everything was going well, until I reached the step where you have to disable the old Swype. It says to uncheck the box next to Swype, however there is no check and I cannot find a way to disable it. The next step would be to "Generate License" but it won't allow me to. From what I've seen online, people say you have to root it. I'm not taking that risk, so can anybody help?!

    You might be able to use the same method as the MIUI rom. Hold on and I'll find the link.....

    EDIT: here's the link I used when I installed swype on the MIUI rom.

    http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?3586-Swype-on-MIUI&highlight=miui

    Follow it exactly and you shouldn't have any probs. If it doesn't work the first time try it again to make sure you did it right. Since you don't have an option to disable swype, I don't see why this wouldn't work as MIUI didn't have that option either. Let me know if that worked.

    Go to menu>settings>applications>manage applications. Find swype, select it, uninstall.

    My only options when I select Swype are to force stop or cancel, but it doesn't allow you to select cancel and that's where the uninstall thing is on the other apps.

    Yes, version 2.70.75.22915. It came preloaded on the phone.

    Are you rooted and/or are you planning on flashing custom roms? If not then there's no point in installing swype beta.

    I have no idea what that means, but I guess I can try new things with it. As long as it won't void my warranty or mess with my insurance on it?

    Here's a link to help you understand a little more of what "root" is

    THIS IS WHAT ROOT MEANS (stop asking)

    If you don't want to void your warranty then don't root your phone. If you want more info on rooting your phone just search around the forums or google how do I root my *enter phone model here*. Took me 4 months of researching before I took the plunge. Make sure its something you want to do before doing it. Don't hesitate to ask questions....we all started at zero at some point and have picked up a lot along the way.
