    Galaxy S2 post-ICS freeze/battery drain

    Hello,

    I recently updated my Galaxy S2 OTA to the UK Vodafone variant of ICS (4.0.3). Since the update, Swype (version 3.26.92.38235) has been crashing (screen freezes, then flicks between letter and numbers, I think with the stock Samsung keyboard showing up). It was also draining the battery - using up to 60%.

    I have had to switch to the (in my opinion) inferior SlideIT as it was causing me so many problems.

    A few other people seem to have this problem over at XDA forums.

    Any tips/info?

    Thanks,

    Digital909

    PS I should also add that I've factory reset the phone, cleared the cache several times etc.

    I've been reading about a lot of issues with users upgrading to ICS and then attempting to continue with their pre-existing version of Swype. Let me root around internally and get back to you on this.

    Thanks!

    Thanks David, much appreciated.

    Just FYI, I rooted my device, deleted all the swype stuff and installed the beta. It had the same problems, if not worse!

    I then hard reset, cleared cache, reinstalled the stock ROM, cleared cache etc again. Swype worked like a treat for 24 hours, I was delighted, then the
    crashes started again! I will try to post a bug log for you.

    Thanks again,
