Problems with Swiftkey on my Hero.

    Hey people :)

    On my old Hero (rooted with Villain 2.1) I had Swiftkey as my main method of text input. It was awesome and saved sooo much time. Unfortunately it got washed with my gym kit and my replacement came the next day from Orange.

    Since the official 2.1 rom was out, I decided not to root, and just install the official 2.1. But now Swiftkey wont work.

    I download and install the app from the market, but I can't get past the setup screen. It keeps FC and restarting the setup process. If I do manage to get past this, the keyboard simply doesn't pop up and I have to revert back to the Sense keyboard.

    An update came out tonight, and I hoped this would fix this issue but it hasn't.

    I wondered if anyone else had this problem and had a workaround?

    :) Thank-you :)

    I experienced exactly the same annoying problem with my Hero, this time for the 2.1 release from Orange Spain. It is really frustrating as I purchased Swiftkey and it was by far my favourite way of introducing text.

    Any ideas?
