    if i read the swype forums correctly, we can't use the new beta swype keyboard because swype ships with the atrix and cannot be removed (at least easily).

    In order to install the new keyboard, the old one must be uninstalled first (according to the swype website), which since we can't do, we cannot use the new beta version.

    Hopefully I am wrong and someone knows how to do that.

    make a backup to another folder of the Swype.apk in the /system/app folder and the libSwypeCore.co in the /system/lib folder. use Titanium Backup to uninstall Swype. you should then get passed the licensing error.

    so has anyone successfully installed it? any hiccups with the process? I'm rooted and I HATE the "hidden word" popup.

    yes, i have installed it. i actually tried installing the beta that was released prior to this March 10 beta and it didn't installed because the screen resolution of the Atrix is not supported. i then used the Swype.apk backup that i copied to another folder to reinstall the OEM Swype. when this new beta came out, i just used Titanium Backup to uninstall Swype again and the beta installed fine this time. i initially just renamed the Swype.apk to Swype.apk.old and the libSwypeCore.co to libSwypeCore.co.old but i got the same licensing error that resin got. Swype has to be uninstalled properly to avoid the licensing error.

    the swype that is installed is fine by me... what are the reasons some are installing the new betas? are they bugs in the pre-installed one?
