After countless hours trying to figure out how to fix the swype keyboard, I had a revelation...to just uninstall and reinstall it haha.
Anyway here's how:
1.Download Root Uninstaller from the app market. Uninstall, or "backup" swype to the sd card.
2.Get the swype installer from beta.swype.com. You're gonna have to register to get the download link. It sends a link to your email right away.
3. Run the swype installer (you'll need to change permissions to allow installation of non market apps). It even has a cool tutorial at the end that taught me some tricks I never knew before.
4.*UPDATE* Generate License!*
Enjoy! Hope it works for you. It should. I now like my phone again
