Default Themed Swype

Different colors at the bottom, delete the color from the file name when placing on sdcard. i.e. blueupdate.zip > update.zip

MUST BE DEODEXED

All Swypes have matching tracers

All these are for 2.2, there is no reason you shouldnt be on 2.2

Original images from bilbobrian, just some extra days on my part getting it to you

As always do a back up

If on 2.2 and have boot strapper installed to use this update .zip, throw it on sd card, open droid x bootstraper reboot to recovery, apply update.zip, reboot done!

........ without bootstrapper method...........


if you want just the apk for a different color just extract it from the update.zip file

use root explorer or other app to make a copy of your original app ( its in system/app)

First you must remove swype.apk from system/app
any way of your choosing, terminal or adb, then reboot.


follow the following directions

Put the .apk on your sdcard, navigate to it with astro or your fav file browser, open the apk and choose install. If it still says only gives you the option to uninstall, you didnt uninstall correctly.

if you can get it to show up after install go into settings and keyboard and make sure swype is checked

DONE


................ If you somehow botched it...............

restore your back up.

If you were careless enough to not do a back up and your on 2.2 get a clean download here.. MY droid world 2.2 follow those instructions.

then download file again, your last one might of been bad. When in recovery go to mounts and mount system, then install the zip


.................................................. ........................
Red

Blue to match galaxy s

original 2.1 theme for 2.2 w/ grey tracer swype icons are off, im working on it

Green w/ green tracer

Pink Page 11 for screenie

For all those that pm me to buy me a
BEER , this is how. Dont forget about the original creator of the images, bilbobrian

Want it?

First you must take full responsibility for the actions you are about to take.


Download the attached link. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QVWKWYK8 Put the .apk on your sdcard.

*optional (using astro or root explorer) Navigate to your system/app folder, find the existing swype.apk and rename to .bak

Open terminal emulator on your X

su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /sdcard/Swype.apk /system/app
mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

Open a text box and verify. Its that easy

This cannot be done by copy and paste in root explorer.

Credit goes to
teenfaces (xdaforum) for the code used to make this work
bilbobrian (xdaforums) I think he themed this for other phones (please correct me if it wasnt originally him)
Tparker76 (droidforums) for his help

nice work, greatly appreciated
quick q: how do i get rid of the voice search key? on your screenshot the enter key is by itself, on mine its right next to it so sometimes i hit it accidentally.
thanks

No, idea. Why would you have a different swype than me? Might want to try to delete your original swype (by root explorer) then just install mine.
