View Full Version : Droid 1 FRG83 Bug

Got System Update 2.2.1 FRG83 and now Swype Beta is not working on my Moto Droid 1. Got the pop-up that said something to the effect that the version of Swype on my phone did not match the phone or that sywpe was not yet configured for my phone. I can still use the regular typing feature, but no swyping... Please Help???

Device Make/Model: Motorola Droid 1
Wireless Carrier: Verizon
Android Version 2.2.1 FRG83
ROM Version Stock
Are you a ROOT user? Yes

I believe I am having a similar problem. Android 2.2.1 build FRG83D. I installed the skype beta last night, played with it for a bit, then went to bed. this morning I get up and tried to respond to an email, and swype doesn't recognize ANY commands, I had to type commands in manually. I then try texting, same thing. I then take out the battery and turned on the T.V. After a bit I put the battery back in and turned my droid1 back on. Swype still does not recognize any motions.

Good news! I finally got it working again. I tried disabling and re-enabling the swype keyboard. I tried having both android and swype enabled. I tried uninstalling the swype installer. all to no avail. finally I uninstalled swype and reinstalled it. Swype seems to be working for now.

other errors: when I try to write swype, it corrects to skype. Also, swype has one hell of a time with the word "hopefully"

On Droid1. Swype working yesterday, then 2.21 update arrived, Swype would no longer swipe. All the other features seemed to work. Uninstalled Swype (but not the installer) and re-installed. It's working now even after several re-boots to see what would happen.
