    Alright, this is my first time, so sorry if my instructions are not good. Just post your question and I'll try to help.

    I am running RUU 2.2 and it works fine.

    What you need:
    1. Droid Incredible
    2. USB charger cable
    3. Astro or Linda (I used Astro, easier to me)
    4. Swype: Link deleted. Illegal download.
    How to:
    1. Download Swype from the link above and save to desktop.
    2. Connect Dinc to computer and on the Dinc select "Disk Drive"
    3. When autoplay open, press "Open folder to view files" (I use Win 7, so your may be different, just go to computer>what ever drive its in)
    4. Now just drag the swype file from the desktop to the Dinc.
    5. Now safely remove you Dinc.
    6. Go into Astro scroll down to where you see the finger swyping and press it. Click "open app manager" then install, if something pops up telling you its a Unknown Source check it. Then go back and install.
    7. Go to "Language and Keyboard". Check Swype, go to a text message and long press the input area, it should ask you for input method, select swype and there you go.

    (For RUU 2.2 people, when you connect your Dinc to your computer, it will ask you to install drivers. What I did was press it, then when Verizon and htc thing poped up, I pressed cancel or whatever. Then go to Dinc and select Disk Drive and just do the steps)

    Let me know if you need help

    OP,

    You should modify your post to include nothing but a link to the Swype Beta Signup page, since your post is currently a violation of piracy law as well as forum rules.

    Posting links to illegal downloads is against the forum rules. Like Asterdroid said, if you want the program...register at beta.swype.com

    Closing this thread as the instructions are pointless without the illegal copy of the apk.
