I see a similar problem. I'm able to install with the new Skype installer. However, after installing, Skype immediately Force Closes. Again, when I try to enable Skype though Settings->Language & Keyboard I see an immediate Force Close.

I'm very excited about this version supporting Voice Search. Please fix this issue. At the very least please let us download the previous version of Skype.

All you have to do is delete libSwypeCore.so from /system/lib.

Go here for more information.


I had the same problem and I'm running ultimate Droid 2.0 as well. Hope it helps :)

Okay my swype continues to force close, i tried changing input methods, i tried to uninstall it but my evo wont let me uninstall it. my swype version is when i go into manage apps is says the file size is 252k which is interesting since everybody says it should be a 2mb file. the update that everybody got was supposed to make the swype go from 10mb down to 2mb but mine basically disappeared. I cant unistall this file or move it or anything. can someone please tell me what to do. my phone isnt rooted (i think) i dont really know what that means anyway. Im not computer smart so i might need a step by step instruction for my tiny brain. i want my swype back.
