Was told to post a new thread concerning my issue, here is my dilemma....I routinely swap roms and haven't used swype in a while because of it, decided I wanted to re-install it and it does not work, here is the troubleshooting...

Device Make/Model: HTC Dream (T-mobile G1)

Wireless Carrier: T-Mobile

Android Version (2.2 FroYo? 1.6 Donut?): 2.2 FroYo

ROM Version (Stock? Custom ROM?): Cyanogen 6.0.0 DS

Are you using APPS2SD?: No

Full text of the error message you are receiving (if you are not receiving an error, describe the problem in as much detail as possible): "The Swype package you installed is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality. Please contact Swype about this issue."

What troubleshooting steps have you completed so far?: All basic troubleshooting steps as per directions.

Are you a ROOT user? (If you don't know what this means then the answer is "no"): Yes

I was given these steps to attempt to fix the problem.

Regarding the following posts. Not too sure what's going on with your install logs.

I'll have to check with Brian; however I found a couple posts with similar messages that were resolved by doing the following:
Uninstalling Swype and Swype Installer from the phone
Removing all items from your Download folder on your SD card
Rebooting the Phone
Re-download the Swype Installer and reinstall Swype.

These steps did not work. Same error as above, did the process several times to no avail. Please help. Thank you.

for me it worked this way:

i enabled swap (with firerats script/patch) and compcache (in cm settings).
I unchecked "keep home in memory" (in cm performance settings)
with a task manager i killed all apps beside home app.

As said in a sticky thread, android kills the installer during the installation, so for me it worked the way described above.
