Could get it back:
-Switch off data (Airplane mode)
-Restore the fresh installed 22.214.171.12476 from a Titanium backup (yes, before and after each new version I make a Titanium Backup of Swype, no question!)
-Switching off all online activities (Swype Connect etc.)
-Adding a firewall rule against Swype (no Internet access for Swype)
My old wordlist is there and keeps there now
Nuance-Swype Version: 3.0.2 on SGS4 with CM13
Firewall rule? Sounds good to me. Except I don't always have a rooted phone to run this on sadly. (My skills would literally be developer-level to manage a root for this.)
My poor man's solution was always to delete the app data.
You *might* be able to (if you have Android 4+ anyway) use the new data thing to block Swype from using mobile data. I assume this would work the same as firewalling it.
