View Full Version : Nov. Swype installer doesnt work

12-07-2010, 7:47 PM
Mytouch 3G
Cyn 6.1 Stable (Froyo)
Swappiness of 25 (using script at boot)
No App2SD

So my problem started after the first beta, I was never able to update to the newer beta.. and had to revert back to regular android keyboard.

When the Nov beta was released I had just wiped my phone out, and hence before downloading and installin gaaps, i installed the swype installer and swype, and it worked perfectly. Hence I am have Nov swype beta installed on my phone right now.

When i currently turn on swype installer to update my swype, the error i get is
" Download of the package failed. Swype is already installed. Please uninstall and try again".

The steps do not say that I am to uninstall swype to update to the Dec .....what gives?

I rather not have to wipe to try installing the new beta again.

Please Help

The message in the installer is accurate. You cannot update Swype directly. The old version must be uninstalled before the new version can be installed.

Thans Brian for the quick reply..... now I am worried, will it create issues and I will miss out on swype if it doesnt install after I uninstall the nov beta and the dec beta doesnt install...
