    You would have the first virus EVER confirmed on Android. I doubt it :)

    Seriously though...downloaded and installed the swype apk that holmes linked to. Installed and it worked flawlessly. Rebooted to make sure.

    The boot animation had changed. It was a skull with its head bent back and smoke coming out of its mouth...then a skull with mouth opening until bootup.

    Went to home and it locked up.

    Rebooted and it happened two boots in a row (without locking up home again though) restored immediately...I shoulda took video of it.

    Wierded me out though.

    Same for me. Have rebooted a few times just to test it out and as described above, the same thing happens, and the same procedure fixes it. Not going to switch until there is an official update from Swype due to last few posts.

    I'm rooted running Sholes 2.05 until I figure what I want to upgrade to next if that makes any difference.

    thats from Droid Root Pro or Droid Root Help you pressed the boot animation button and it changed it for you. I mistakenly did the same thing. it was cool for 1 reboot. but got OLD really fast. search for bootanimation there is a thread with other boot animations you can load. its pretty damn easy too.

    this site has boot animations as well

    not on the market. but you can download them and save them as bootanimation.zip and push them to /data/local/bootanimation.zip

    Root Explorer is quick and easy way of doing it.

    Question I would have is "How would anyone know that 5652 is the wrong version for Droid and 5612 is the right one"? Did someone from SWYPE post something to that effect?

    If this is the case, I am wondering if the installer might be picking up the wrong version due to something we are running on our phones (such as launcher2 that was ported over from the Nexus)? Or one of the Root Mods is messing with the installer if you are rooted!

    Just a thought. Is there someone that was stock 2.0.1 that downloaded the installer, and did not encounter the problems on the boot up? If so, what version did they get?

    Fyi

    Just FYI my Droid is not rooted, not modded in any way, I got the same error message (wrong version) after power off, and this is the beta that came from SwypeInc.com. It would become unresponsive, by that I mean the keyboard would get a luminous blue square around its perimeter, it would bonk, but no text would be entered. Sometimes I got the trick to work (reselect input method) sometimes it took a reboot. Don't know where this updated file comes from... but it works!

    I too need the .apk file. The link no longer works and SwypeInc has not responded back to my email.
