    on PEGBm has anybody been able to install swype, rename it to swype.apk, move it to /system/app, and theme swype using sneakey's xml's?

    thanks!

    RF, no I've tried about 100 times and GB does not like having certain apps, including Swype, in /system/app, so I haven't been able to theme it using Metamorph.

    wow, that was fast. thanks GLD! i guess i can stop pounding my head against the wall :)


    for anybody else reading this thread, i replaced the custom lockscreens because i wanted something translucent. if you'd like to do the same, just replace the pngs in framework-res.apk with the attached (LGB lockscreens which i altered).
