View Full Version : Moto Droid Installation Problem

09-16-2010, 3:09 PM
I'm having trouble installing the September Beta update on my Moto Droid.

Previous versions have worked fine but here is the problem with the new one:
1. I uninstall Swype and the Swype Installer
2. I download the Swype Installer using my username and password
3. I start the installation using my original invitation email.
4. I download the installer (using the Dolphin browser)
5. I run the installer (non-market installations are enabled)
6. The Application Installed screen appears
7. I do not get the "installed successfully - enable swype" screen.
Instead the next screen displayed says
Download of the package failed
Swype is already installed. Please uninstall and try again.

8. Rinse-and-repeat: I repeat the steps above several times - it always fails.

An application manager (Linda) shows me that Swype Installer 1.1 and Swype are installed but I am not able to enable Swype as an input method

Same here.

Looks like nobody is interested in fixing this issue. Meanwhile I bought SwiftKey. I liked swype more, actually, but if this is the kind of support you get while in beta... you can't expect nothing better when it's fully commercial.

Steve, We can look into this more for you, but we'll need the system logs from a fresh install of Swype.

Please follow the uninstall instructions closely here: http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?993-KNOWN-BETA-for-Android-ISSUES-Please-read-before-posting-(UPDATE-9-23-10)#FullUninstall
