4-Then move the app apk to /system/app folder with 644 permission.
5- Reboot and enjoy your keyboard installed as a system application.

*Pl note using this method eve a modified version with different signatures than the original app can be installed as a system application.
* This very same method works for other keyboards as well.....

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!
