Swype from the newest gingerbread doesn't have the double tap for word correction (the trick is to use a slow double tap) that was present in the .573 leak. So I grabbed it and made a flashable zip.

1. Flash zip in clockwork
2. Wipe dalvik cache
3. Reboot

I didn't realize it was in the first leak... That's what I really miss from froyo swype. I always get the cut/copy pop up.

Froyo swype didn't have it either. The android beta does. But with this you still get the copy/cut/paste popup if you double tap too quickly. Once you realize the right double tap speed it's all good.

That's what I meant lol. Forgot that while I was on froyo I installed the beta. I'll check this out thanks.

Just wanted to let everyone know...

THIS SAVED MY LIFE!!!

I tried to skin Swype in 2.3 and royally messed things up. Swype wasn't there, it would keep popping up errors, I couldn't fix it no matter what I did etc etc. It was really screwed up. Having come from a Droid 2 where I loved the slide-out keyboard and then only moved from the D2 to the X *BECAUSE* of Swype... to lose the keyboard that makes the phone useable was a nightmare for me. This fixed it in 5 minutes flat. To anyone out there that has done something similar on 2.3, use this. It'll fix you up, no questions asked.

THANK YOU SNOW!!

So I got myself in a little jam. Here's the situation...I was on rooted Gb .588, when I installed this swype zip. Everything was working fine, then I decided to install unkleduke's deodex zip and that's working too. But the problem is now the swype is FC'ing. Can I just flash the swype .573 zip over again? I plan on flashing the Watermarked theme, should I take a completely different approach instead? Please help..Thanks! Oh and HI everyone, sorry to make my first post, a plea for help.lol

Yes, flash the swype zip again. It should fix you up.

So should I install the Watermarked theme first and see what happens before reflashing the swype.zip? and thanks for the quick reply!

The theme won't have an effect one way or the other. The deodex probably overwrote the swype.apk in the system folder which caused the problem.
