Just got System Update 2.2.1 FRG83 tonight and now Swype Beta is not working on my stock Nexus One. Got the pop-up that said something to the effect that the version of Swype on my phone did not match the phone or something to that effect. I toggled between standard keyboard and Swype and power cycled the phone...Swype is still not working.

Device Make/Model: Nexus One
Wireless Carrier: T-Mobile
Android Version 2.2.1
ROM Version Stock

Same problem here. I updated this morning and Swype immediately stopped working. The message I get:

"The Swype package you installed is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality. Please contact Swype about the issue."

I hit 'OK', and try to use Swype. I see the trailing strokes as I Swype, but after Swype'ing nothing is entered into the field that I'm trying to get text into.

I have come to love and depend on Swype ... please help !!

Thanks!

Had the same issue initially then I remembered the last update did the same thing to my phone. I uninstalled the Swype Ap (and installer) and then reinstalled it from scratch (following the original link in the email). That took care of it. Swype is back up and running like a champ; and not a moment too soon. I didn't realize how dependant I have become on it. Typing out words feels like I'm a caveman (a little glimps at life Before Swype).

Thanks for all that responded. The uninstall/reinstall worked ! The only issue I had is that in going to the download page from my Nexus one I was getting a blank page, even after clearing cache. Fortunately, I still had the September download on my SD card and reinstalled from there.

Has anyone else had the problem of getting a blank page from the beta download page ?

thanks!

Confirming that one reinstall did not fix the issue, but a second reinstall did. Strange

This is a known issue that has been detailed here: http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?993-KNOWN-BETA-for-Android-ISSUES-Please-read-before-posting-(UPDATE-9-23-10)#FullUninstall

The installer is basically using old cashed data which must be purged before a successful install can be performed. Please follow the instructions to a T. Thanks.

Here's the entry from logcat that bothers me:


D/Swype (14430): Swype initialized.
D/Swype (14430): SwypeInputMethod.onDestroy() called
E/Swype (14430): Could not open license from the APK: files/license.dat

This is after a full reinstall.
