*Pl note using this method eve a modified version with different signatures than the original app can be installed as a system application.

Thanks for the tip. SwiftKey is now a system app. Im not able to login to my Google account from within SwiftKey though. Is there a way around this? I followed your instructions to the T. I can't for the life of me figure out what went wrong.
EDIT... Scratch that. I just realized I had SwiftKey blocked in Lightning Wall. Thanks again for the awesome tip!
