    So today when I got back from my break at work, my swype stopped working. I'm on serendipity 6.4 and have never had trouble with my swype till today. It just randomly stopped working. I can swype the word and you see the green line but the a blue boarder goes around my keyboard and the word doesn't show up. I don't know what the problem might be. Any help would be appreciated.

    When I installed Serendipity, I had the same issue. What I found was that I had to download the Swype Beta installer from the Swype website, and install that on the phone.

    First of all here's the new swype:
    Swype | Text Input for Screens

    Second of all you're gonna have to remove the swype on your phone, it's been expiring for almost everybody on the XDA forums so you might as well check there for information on how to rid of the old swype and install the beta. Here follow this link:

    Everyone is having this problem. You can use Titanium backup to uninstall swype. Then go and sign up for swype beta 3.0 Follow the instructions to download and install on your phone.

    I did this and it worked great, but after the first re-boot the darn thing stopped working. Uninstall again using titanium backup and reinstall using the swype email instructions. After that its worked flawlessly. (others had the same problem after the first re-boot)
