I've tried to move Swiftkey 3 keyboard to the system partition with titanium backup pro but it keeps force closing, when I done this with Swiftkey X, it had worked perfectly without any force closing. My question is, Is there any way to move Swiftkey 3 keyboard to the system partition without any force closes? (Same with swype beta)

Try also moving /data/data/com.touchtype.swiftkey/lib/* to /system/lib/*

Check that permissions suit the target although this should be automatic. Reboot, may work.

Thanks for the reply, but when I moved it to the system partition with titanium backup, that file is already moved to /system/lib/ with the correct permissions already. I don't know why this isn't working but it worked perfectly with Swiftkey X

No problem, good luck.

Have a look at logcat when you launch the app and it crashes for some pointers.

It appears that titanium backup didn't work properly when moving to the system partition. I manually moved the lib file to /system/lib/ then converted Swiftkey 3 to a system app and it worked (It also worked for Swype beta.)

If they're FC'ing because of a missing library, normally yes.

Is there a way to tell? or do I need to manually check using root explorer to see if the library was moved for each app that force closes?

Yep, a look at the logcat will tell you if an .so file is missing.
