    This does not require root and works with the stock ICS rom.

    This is the new 4.2 keyboard with google's version of Swype. It will work on ICS 4.0 or higher.

    You can download the APK and put it on your sd card. Then open with Astro file manager to install it.

    You'll have to go to your settings menu and put a check next to it so it will show up in your list.

    If for some reason you're using a ROM that already has the latin-ime keyboard in it (like AOSP related) you'll have to flash the keyboard in. But I don't think we've gotten that far yet, but I'm letting you know for future reference.

    I actually prefer it to Swype Beta, I was getting a lot of lag and weird word suggestions. This is actually really good.

    i dont type, i swipe. But i swipe fast and even if i didn't that would make even less sense since that would mean the 4.2 keyboard lags even though I swipe slow.

    But yea, very strange that swype beta runs flawless for me and 4.2 lags since you and stonent both say the opposite.

    I noticed the 4.2 keyboard is more intuitive than the 4.1 is. I prefer SwiftKey, but set up on 4.2 was a lot easier with the new keyboard.
