    I was running a beta version of swype on my motorola droid that then expired. So for 12 hours I was stuck with my stock keyboard. I found a site that allowed me to customize my own HTC_IME keyboard however I wanted. It looked awesome (Go Utah Jazz) but wasn't swype. The following morning I was able to get swype back, but in the back of my head always missed my newly made keyboard. Is there any way that I can customize the swype keyboard like I did with the HTC one?

    Sure, open up the APK with e.g. file-roller on Linux, or whatever Windows programs do it. (7-zip?)

    Go to assets... then keyboards... then extract the layout; modify it; and put it back in.

    Then uninstall Swype... and install your new APK.

    Dumb reply, but how do I mod it once I extract it. Do I just replace it with my own png files?

    The swype beta is open again. you can register at Swype | Text Input for Screens
    Register and they will send you an email to install it on your phone, so register with an email that you can open on your droid.

    If you go to the swype website the beta was closed last i checked i have the APK that works on the moto droid and its still working on mine, its not the expired beta and works just fine. Let me know it you want me to send it to you.
