    I just installed the 2.2 zip. The problem I am having is that when I have the multi-touch keyboard activated and start to use it I get a constant Force Close with this saying,
    "The application Multi-touch keyboard (process com.android.inputmethod.latin) has stopped unexpectantly. Please try again."
    The force close will not stop until I deactivate Multi-touch in the settings. I am fairly sure I might have erased this file in the past. Any idea on how to fix this? Can I download this file somewhere? Thanks much.

    If you are talking about the droid x keyboard it only works on 2.1

    Is the Multi-touch the Droid X keyboard? Because I did have that installed. I thought I uninstalled it but maybe I uninstalled swype instead? I am confused.

    ya the droid x is the multi touch keyboard it will not work on android 2.2 yet. We are waiting for a port from the droid 2 for one that works on android 2.2. Swype works perfectly fine on android 2.2.

    Well, I think I might have deleted Swype. I reinstalled the 2.2 zip from recovery but there is still only the Multi-touch option in my keyboard settings. How do I get Swype back and how do I uninstall Droid X keyboard?

    menu>settings>applications>manage applications>all apps tab at top> find the multitouch keyboard apk.>select>uninstall. to get your swype back assuming you are signed up for the swype beta. You will have to get the swype installer.apk from the email they sent you then install that. Open it and put your username and password in and it will download and install the swype keyboard

    Thanks, fixed and removed Multi-touch. But why won't Swype reinstall when I go into recovery and reinstall the 2.2 update.zip file?

    Does anyone know why Swype won't reinstall when I reload the 2.2 zip file from Recovery Mode?

    Reinstall, usually fixes it for most people.

    Because swype isn't on the 2.2 zip? The 2.2 zip would only have 2.2, not any other apps you'd have had installed prior.
