Has anyone have swype stop working on them?
Yup...i was using a milestone copy of swype because i DO have a beta signup with swype but couldnt get it to work...anyways yesterday or last nite mine quit too and so I did some research and got the latest september version of swype to install/work!!!
Basically got swype installer downloaded and swype installed from that which incidentally FAILED to work as usual so the steps with both installed for it to work for me were to...
go into keyboard settings and make sure swype is UNCHECKED
go into apps and clear data/cache on swype then uninstall
go into apps and clear data/cache on swype installer and then uninstall it as well
I believe I then did a reboot
once booted I cleared cache with cachemate and clear dalvik cache with titanium backup
next make sure no app killer is active (autokiller, ATK) and then go into apps and FC everything you can thats not part of android OS to free up as much memory as possible
(I think FCing all apps other then android necessary ones was the KEY step, along with pressing back instead of done once swype says its installed, for it too work, i think its just really finicky in that it wants alot of free memory when installing!)
then redownload swype installer and install swype with it and when it says swype is installed DO NOT click done instead press the BACK button on your Droid and then instead of getting the usual "swype is already installed on this device" BS popup it said "registering swype" and then it worked!
About a week ago I got an email from Swype sayng that there was a new version of Swype, and that the current version that I had would stop working soon. When it wouldn't work yesterday, I went back to the email which had a link to a new installer. I used that and got the new version that works.
+1 on this. I did the same thing and its working fine.
I had a similar problem, I had to uninstall reboot then reinstall to get it to work
Mine won't take the new install
It says it's not built for my phone...
Maybe it's a ROM issue?
I went back to my email and successfully installed it on my Droid 1.
Did you do anything special that time?
im in the beta got the email and it works fine after installing it to the phone and not the sd card
I'm not asked where to install it?
right. you have to move it under the applications thing in settings.
Well, mine was on the phone & moving it to the SD card is grayed out...
That's not it...
