    Hmmm. I thought I was within the rules, but I can see where the link title would confuse.

    My post was intended as a "how to" and the steps I took while learning to retheme an apk.

    Now if others are using my links for nefarious purposes, well then, I cannot help that :rolleyes:

    I had the best interests of the Android community in mind I swear.

    LOL Yeah well the theme looks nice. I don't think I could ever do it though. The problem with modding Swype is you do all that work for about 6-8 weeks of use and thats IF you get it done right after they release the newest "beta". I'm not sure why no one has been able to "mod" a swype apk and take the auto killer portion out of it so that when everyone elses expires, it will keep working. Surely that can't be that hard. Can it?

    You are.... just. :)

    Please understand that AF isn't on a moral crusade here, we only want to keep the lawyers away from Rob's front door.

    Understood.

    I think many in the Android community would agree with the following statement.

    "Swype has handled their beta poorly and almost all of us would gladly pay for a market version at this point even if it wasn't absolutely perfect".

    :)

    My favorite swype skin yet, used a similar one on an older version. Glad to see it again.

    I got tired of searching for a copy that worked, started using the default keyboard and have realized that I am sending messages and emails with fewer mistakes.

    To hell with Swype. They blew it!

    I would love to try this but I am afraid that I will lose any "learning" Swype did if I replace the install. Do you know if it will retain that or what I have to back up to make sure I keep that history?

    Just as an FYI, I downloaded this (and really liked it) but it screwed with my phone and had to uninstall.

    When I would click a link to go into Facebook from GMail, it would think I was coming in from a Galaxy Tab and wouldnt take me anywhere. It would take me to a mostly blank page where it would say "Download the Facebook app for Galaxy Tab".

    It took my a while to figure it out, but as soon as I uninstalled your port, it went back to normal and I could get back into FB.

    So, those who use FB a lot, you may want to reconsider DLing this. Otherwise, it was nice while it lasted.

    I'm in the beta, so it's not a huge deal, but I loved the red/black theme.

    This version was reworked from a Vibrant which has Swype preloaded.

    It should not expire.

    ;)

    Thanks for putting the time into this
