    Sorry if someone has already asked this, but I didn't see the thread. Is there any way to go back to the swype version that was on DX 2.1?? While I don't hate the new version that came with 2.2, I prefer the old one. Can anyone help?? Does anyone know what the version # is of the stock swype keyboard on DX with 2.1? Thanks in advance!

    I turned the vibration off and it seems so much better. I don't see much difference with Froyo either.

    Do you have to be rooted to do this? If not, and you find out how to do so, please post some detailed instructions.

    ok so some updates - uninstalled multitouch 2.2, installed ported 2.1, didnt work out so well - worked, but the letters on the keys were to small
    trying to get back to the stock 2.2 MT, I realzed that 2.2 has entire set of Odex files for the system that are NOT in the system app folder for 2.1 (at least that was contained in the RAR file i found of both file systems.
    I am still struggling with my uninstall of the 2.2 keyboard so i would recommend NOT uninstalling it at least.

    don't forget that swype is pretty much still in beta...it's still not in the market and is only available preloaded on some phones...it will get better.
