I've got slideit on my nook, but can't seem to activate it. It tells me I need to activate it manually, but when I go to settings/keyboard, the screen flickers and takes me to the home screen. I've tried disabling almost all the running apps and rebooting, but the same thing still happens.

I've been able to find help on rooting, adding apps, etc, on this forum, so maybe someone could give me some advice.

Try moving the apk from data/app to system/app folder then you should be able to install and setup the keyboard.

That's where it is now. I followed the directions on another thread, but the problem seems to be not being able to get into settings/keyboard.

Are you using the NookColor Tools app for settings, or the stock settings?

I recommend NCT.

I had been trying with the stock. In NCT there's the option to choose keyboard but slideit isn't listed. I'll try downloading the apk and putting it in system/app again.

I'm also having a problem with SlideIT. I've pushed it to the device, and when I bring up NCT it's in fact the only option to select. However, it never actually comes up. In other words, if I enter a text entry box the keyboard never pops up.

Try messing with the permissions once it is in the systems/app folder. I've neutral been giving them full user permission but that might not be needed. Also sometimes a reboot is needed.

How i got mine working.

I installed it using dropbox. I put my apk file in dropbox, then i install it. Then i go to my sd card using root explorer, there is a folder called dropbox which the apk gets copied to. I copy and paste the apk in \system\app and then it still didnt work, so i went to the file, mounted as r/w in root explorer, then you long hold on the file name, and it gives the options of "permissions" which you select and then i checked all the boxes. I rebooted after that, which at this point you can use nook tools to set the keyboard.

Now that i helped with all that, how in the hell do you use this thing? I saw videos of swipe, and it looked amazing, to me this thing is like a regular keyboard although i can draw lines through it, it just has no clue what i am trying to type. maybe i will search for a tutorial or something.

Update: found a userguide http://www.mobiletextinput.com/Product/SlideIT/Manual/Pdf/SlideIT_UserGuide[English].pdf
