    Didn't read threw all 70 pages of the topic.
    Swype updated a little while ago with a Microphone button for voice input.
    I just installed the Blue on Black keyboard & it looks like the "Mike button" is joined with the "Go button"
    Is there an updated download for this issue, or is it not really an "issue"?

    I can post a screen capture if I'm not clearer than mud here.
    This was my 1st time using an MM theme, and might I say "Kickass!", So easy to do!

    Thanks for this btw!

    What you're using is the latest version of the Metamorph theme, which I've decided is just fine with me (and which is the version you've seen in my recent screenshots). Sneaky has said that he doesn't have the time to redo all of the Swype themes for the latest update, but like I said, the way it looks is totally good enough for me, and it functions perfectly.

    I just downloaded the MM App today, so I guess it's the latest.
    I pulled the Theme from the OP, didn't go threw 70 pages for newer uploads.

    It "looks just fine" to me, so as long as the mic button works, I won't be worried about a missing | in the whole scheme of things.
    I think it's great something like this can even be done...

    Yeah the mic key function. Sometime I hit go instead of the mix but I also do that with other buttons on keyboard.

    Can these only be made with solid colored keys? Or would you be able to use pngs? I looked at the file for the black ones, and the pngs in the drawable folder are all still stock grey. Attached are pings I wanted to use, darker for the letters, lighter for the special items.

    I tried dropping the pngs in the drawable, sized to match (actually i sized them, then pasted them over the top of the existing area inside the .9.png dots), and it was stock (and "wrong device") when i loaded it up. now i'm jumping through hoops to make sure it's off the phone. stock keeps failing. I tried GLD's uninstall technique, no worky worky.

    I checked a couple of them, the drawable folder has nothing but stock colored pngs.

    bah, just checked, only checked the "SwypeBlack..." ones, just looked at the swype Blue, and the png is blue! THE PNG IS BLUE!!

    So what your saying is, that 1 file is stretched across the entire board, each key isn't an individual of that png?

    i see what your thinking, look in the assets/keyboards those are the pngs that make up the keyboard,what your looking at are small pngs that make up the mic, the pop up bubble and icon etc.....the small stuff

    not working

    ok, im running the preinstalled swype that came with my droid 2. I went to system/app and found that swype.apk was already there so I skipped the first few steps. I also made sure to check r/w in root explorer. When I go into Metamorph it shows Subtheme:swype.apk Located in system/app/. I click that and click to install and I get this "target system/app/swype.apk does not exist skipping". It is clearly there I've seen it. I'm running gummyjar 2.5 if that makes any difference. Any help would be appreciated. I hate the stock look, and don't really like fissions black swype much either. Thanks in advance.

    heck, i'm still trying to get swype reinstalled! did a search for anything with swype in the title that wasn't stored on my SDCard/downloads, and deleted it! with the exception of the installer.

    still no dice.

    to uninstall i just go into root explorer/system/app mount r/w and delete it then reboot then reinstall. the key is rebooting the device.

    stetsonaw, I'm not sure if this will work because you already removed Swype from /system/app, but to remove all remnants of Swype when it's still in system, you would go into Terminal and type:

    su
    sysrw
    busybox rm system/app/swype.apk[or whatever the name there is]
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.swype.android.inputmethod
    cd..
    cd..
    sysro
    sync

    So I'm thinking that maybe you can still do these commands:

    su
    sysrw
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.swype.android.inputmethod
    cd..
    cd..
    sysro
    sync

    (the sysrw and sysro assume you have a ROM with those scripts built in -- if not, use whatever scripts/commands you need to in order to make system read-write, then read only again.

    I hope this works, but I don't know for sure if it will!
