Please uninstall it first before continuing."

To remedy this, you only need to uninstall Swype (not the installer), then reboot the phone and finally, run the installer. I have heard of some limited success with folks just force closing the desktop, and one person said to first go into Manage Applications / use a task kill and kill the Swype service, but this method I am outlining works as long as the install is nor corrupted and cannot be removed.

No issues with the market FCing - when installing the ROM, did you wipe as suggested? Did you install the ROM and nothing else, or did you go ahead and apply themes and / or a kernel in the same cycle?

Just curious here?
I wiped everything 3 times just for good measure.

I installed LFYv1.6 properly, and then the Galaxy S theme.

Using TiBackup I restored swype (the current version)
and it works and I've never had a FC since flashing.

The market in my previous 1.5 LFY would take some time to
*load* but in 1.6 it flies. I just wanted to put that out there.
