Note: Since this would be helpful to a lot of people, I'm creating a new thread for it.
Well either way, it's VERY similar so here we go:
Windows users get these:
1) http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...e-windows.html (Sideload Wonder Machine)
2) Application - HTC Sync for all HTC Android Phones (HTC Sync for the Drivers on Windows)
Linux/Mac users get this:
1) http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...linux-mac.html (Sideload Wonder Machine)
Windows: Install HTC sync, reboot afterwards to ensure the drivers are snuggled into your system. Install Sideload Wonder Machine by downloading the zip file in the link I posted, and copy the AC-SWM directory into C:\ (for simplicity)
Mac/Linux: Download the Sideload Wonder Machine zip in the link, open it and extract it somewhere (remember this directory).
2) Ensure your device has USB debug mode enabled, to do this, go to Settings -> Applications -> Development, and check the "USB Debugging" option.
3) Plug your phone in to your computer, make sure you are in "Charge Only" Mode. (drag the notification bar at the top down to see what mode you're in, tap to change it, make sure you hit DONE).
Open up a command prompt (Start -> Run, type "cmd") and then type: "cd C:\AC-SWM"
Type "adb devices"
You SHOULD see an HTC device listed. If not, you either didn't enable debugging or your drivers are not correct. If you do not see a device, STOP.
Open up your favorite terminal, type "cd /path/to/where/you/extracted/it" and type "./adb devices"
You SHOULD see an HTC device listed. If not either there's a problem with your USB connection or you didn't enable USB debugging. If you do not see a device, STOP.
5) Sign up for the swype beta if you haven't already, and after you have gone through the process and they sent you your download link, DOWNLOAD the file to your device.
Windows: type: "adb pull /mnt/sdcard/download/Swype-Installer.apk Swype-Installer.apk", this will download the installer to your local machine. If there's a problem it's most likely that your device is in USB disk drive mode, and your computer is mounting your filesystem. Make sure you are in charge mode.
Mac/Linux: type: "./adb pull /mnt/sdcard/download/Swype-Installer.apk ./Swype-Installer.apk", this will download the installer to your local machine. If there's a problem it's most likely that your device is in USB disk drive mode, and your computer is mounting your filesystem. Make sure you are in charge mode.
Windows: type: "adb install Swype-Installer.apk"
Mac/Linux: type: "./adb install ./Swype-Installer.apk"
8) You may need to restart your phone to see the installer, but under your applications, you SHOULD see "Swype Installer". Run it.
9) During the install, you can pick either Swype Full or Swype English/Spanish, pick your version.
10) A warning will pop up saying that applications from outside the marketplace cannot be installed. DON'T WORRY, BUT DON'T CLICK ANYTHING YET.
Windows: type "adb pull/data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk"
Mac/Linux: type "./adb pull /data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk"
Windows: type "adb install mypackage.apk"
Mac/Linux: type "./adb install ./mypackage.apk"
13) Click the "Cancel" button on the warning, install should proceed as normal! If not, just run the installer again, it'll pick up the package and you are all set.
If you don't get the Swype keyboard, make sure the Swype installer was completed, you can always start it again. If it IS complete and you still don't see it, reboot your phone.
Also, to enable/disable Swype, go to Settings -> Language & keyboard and make sure "Swype" is checked.
Let me know if you have any problems.
