    Downnload ASTRO file manager.

    Open it, go to sdcard, then to the folder labeled 'downloads'

    Look for swype, click it.

    Click "open app manager" then "install"

    Follow the rest of the directions to get swype to work; going to local and enabling swype, long press to choose text input method, etc.

    I thought it was much easier to load the 2.1 leaks than it was to install swype. Managed to do it though.

    Andrizoid, we've been on the ball in the last like 15 threads today. It's like trolling, except with real advice :D
