    Requires root

    I took the droid 2 swype keyboard theme and put it into an xml for metamorph. (credit to sneaky_zekey for the original file and making this possible, thanks!)

    Sneaky_zekey has a lot more swype themes available that can be found here.

    If you don't have swype, you can register for the beta here. (thanks OMJ)

    Droid 2 Swype Theme for Metamorph (if link is down, the file is at the bottom of this post)

    1. Download the zip from the link above and move it to your sdcard
    2. Open Root Explorer or use ADB to get to /data/app
    3. In data/app find com.swype.android.inputmethod-1.apk, long press and move (make sure droid is set to read/write)
    4. Move the apk into /system/app
    5. Rename to "swype.apk" exactly like that
    6. Reboot the phone
    7. Install MetaMorph from the market
    8. Open MetaMorph and choose Unzip/Extract
    9. Find the file named SwypeBlack_blue_keys.zip
    10. Choose Apply Theme after it extracts
    11. Reboot your phone and you're done!

    Is this SWYPE or just the theme?

    Thanks for posting a new link.

    How exactly do I put this on my SD? I have a Mac.
    I used Chrome To Phone to send me to this page to download it, I just don't know where it ended up.

    EDIT: I found it in Astro. What now?

    You'll need to install Root Explorer and MetaMorph from the market or wherever. In Root Explorer you need to go into data then to apps and the directions should help you out with the rest. Let me know if you get stuck anywhere.

    I can't seem to find it in data/app. I found it in downloads but it wasn't one file named "com..." or anything.

    EDIT: Do I need to have Swype already installed for this to work? Or is it just a keyboard?

    Ok, so what you want to do is open up Root Explorer, then find the folder labeled "data", press that and then find the folder labeled "app". Look for the file that is com.swype.android.inputmethod-1.apk (you need to have swype already installed) and long press and choose move. Press the back button twice and find the folder labeled "system". Then go to the folder labeled "app" in the system folder and paste (you will need to press the button on the top to r/w instead of r/o).

    There's my problem. I don't already have Swype. I thought this was just a new Swype themed keyboard, not the actual Swype app.

    It's not the actual swype apk, it's only a theme, but you need to have swype in order to apply the theme (obviously).

    With Swype being a closed Beta, how to obtain it is not open for discussion on the Forum

    I was not insisting illegal downloading but a way to purchase it if not in the market or if they have any plans to bring it to the market.

    No accusations, just making sure the guidlines were known, discussions like that can get a thread closed and nobody wants that

    As far as your question, you might have sucess in emailing Swype and asking for a Beta package, even though the Beta is closed some members have reported having success by doing that
