    Yeah, I had the exact same issue when I installed it previously. It is because of that issue that I went back to Froyo, I use Swype exclusively and I'm not willing to give it up.
    If anyone has a way to fix it, I would love to know so I can hop on the Gingerbread train

    could you not remove all of the swype files from the /system folder and then install the swype beta installer?

    Try these instructions from Droid Forums:

    1.Download Root Uninstaller from the app market. Uninstall, or "backup" swype to the sd card.

    2.Get the swype installer from beta.swype.com. You're gonna have to register to get the download link. It sends a link to your email right away.

    3. Run the swype installer (you'll need to change permissions to allow installation of non market apps). It even has a cool tutorial at the end that taught me some tricks I never knew before.

    Ac is reporting that the droid x ota gingerbread update is being pushed out with a higher build number than what was leaked. Hopefully that means the D2 update will be coming out soon too but who really knows #fingerscrossed

    The keyboard on this build is a little laggy but overall I'm pretty satisfied with it. Guess I'll stick with it until the official comes out.

    I don't seem to have that issue. The new stock gingerbread keyboard has been tiptop for me. It is actually my favorite keyboard to use and I've bought and used pretty much any keyboard worth checking out. Swiftkey, ultra, smart, better, swype, gingerbread keyboard by steven lin, AI type keyboard beta, and more.

    Lovin' Gingerbread so far! I came from Squidly, back to stock, and now Gingerbread. Super snappy, more responsive! I am bummed about the wifi tethering (if anyone has a fix, do share!) but I'll probably stick with this for a while.

    So I recently used this guide to take my D2 from stock to Gingerbread and for the most part I like it. However I used Handcent SMS before the upgrade and really liked the ability to reply in the notification pop up it has, but I can't figure out how to disable the default text notification in Gingerbread. So now every text I get I have 2 notification icons, 2 pop ups (the default one pops up over the Handcent one which is more frustrating), and 2 sounds that play. Anyone know how I might be able to fix this? Maybe it's easy to disable the default notifications and I'm just too stupid to figure it out?

    Wow I'm stupid. Just realized that it wasn't the default text notification, it was another app I had downloaded a long time ago similar to Handcent. It must have been gotten restored from my backup and I had completely forgotten about it ever existing. Well, problem solved, thanks for the help.

    the gingerbread build is for the Droid 2 A955 only not the Droid 2 Global A956. I don't recommend trying it.
