So I just got the FRG83D OTA update to my AT&T Nexus One.

At first, as expected, Swype did not work and I set about the usual re-install methods. But those kept on failing with the "Download of the package failed. Swype is already installed. Please uninstall and try again." failure notice.

However, following the complete uninstall instructions here:

http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?994-HOW-TO-READ-ME-FIRST-Get-BETA-for-Android-troubleshooting-help#basic_steps

minus the swapper2 portion since I do not have root, and then following the install instructions here:

http://beta.swype.com/android/welcome/detailed/

minus the market install block notice since I went through that a long time ago, and Swype did install successfully.

Thank you very much Jerry, I was finally able to install Swype following your post and Brian's uninstall info. I was getting the "Download of the package failed. Swype is already installed" message numerous times today and it was frustrating to say the least:p Thanks for your help:o

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
