View Full Version : Should we install upgrades on pre-installed Swype?

I've installed the beta upgrade on my My Touch 3g. Should I do so on my Galaxy Tab, which has Swype pre-installed?

The answer is no, do not install any Beta Swype on a phone that had Swype pre-installed.
This apparently causes an issue where you can not get Swype back at all.
It is said that Swype Beta is not meant to be installed on a phone that has Swype pre-installed.

If you install it on a device that came preloaded with it, it will disable the preloaded one and the installed one won't work also un-installing it doesn't fix the issue and your stuck with having to do a hard reset (unless you know your way around the system files)

That being said there is a work around! Head on over to the Droid X section in this forum and look at the post about how to install swype on devices that came preloaded with it.

I just did this with my dell streak and it worked fine!
Be aware that the layout and theme will be gone and set to default swype ones.
