    Default [Guide] Installing Swype Beta on HTC Inspire 4G

    Windows users get these:
    1) http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...e-windows.html
    2)

    Linux/Mac users get this:
    1) http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...linux-mac.html

    Steps:
    1)
    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. Open a terminal and type: "cd /path/to/directory", then, "chmod +x swm-install.sh", then "./swm-install.sh". On the mac, it will point you to a URL that contains the package, for linux it will install it automatically.

    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).

    4)
    Windows:
    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.

    Mac/Linux
    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.

    6)
    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.

    7)
    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.

    11)
    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"

    12)
    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.

    I'm having an issue with getting steps 11-12 to work. It appears up until then everything is going smoothly, I picked Swype full and didn't press anything at the pop up and then I get this in my cmd window:
    C:\AC_SWM>adb pull/data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./m
    ypackage.apk

    be an absolute path.
    devices - list all connected devices

    dev:<character device name>
    jdwp:<process pid> (remote only)
    adb jdwp - list PIDs of processes hosting a JDWP transport

    adb install [-l] [-r] [-s] <file> - push this package file to the device and i
    nstall it
    ('-l' means forward-lock the app)

    Note: you should not automatically start a PPP connection.
    <tty> refers to the tty for PPP stream. Eg. dev:/dev/omap_csmi_tty1
    [parameters] - Eg. defaultroute debug dump local notty usepeerdns

    adb sync notes: adb sync [ <directory> ]
    <localdir> can be interpreted in several ways:

    pdated.

    - If it is "system" or "data", only the corresponding partition
    is updated.

    There was a typo in my guide (which I now corrected), but put a space between pull and /, so it's

    adb pull /data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I get:
    remonte object 'adb pull /data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk' does not exist

    Is there another way to get the mypackage.apk file out of the phone and load it thru the side wonder machine?

    Yeah I had the same trouble, there was a missing space.. or a space not... wherever. It's been updated, works fine now.

    Make sure you don't close the warning about not letting apps outside the market to be installed

    When my warning shows up I leave it there and run: adb pull /data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk but it tells me " does not exist" so I'm stuck on step 11.
    Is it possible that my directory is different since my install file was never under sdcard it was under download.

    Thanks for your help.

    Did you make sure to extract the zip into C:\ ? Basically in Windows Explorer you should be seeing "AC-SWM" on your disk. If not, you can open the .zip again and copy the AC-SWM directory from it into your C:\

    I found unzip made a root and a sub directory. in otherwords

    C:\AC-SWM\AC-SWM

    Check that and then just move the files from the sub director to the root and it worked

    So everything went smoothly. I have Swype installed and it is activated under my settings.. however there is no Swype keyboard (still stock). I tried restarting the phone but that didn't solve the issue. Any ideas?

    KB58,

    After you've gone through the entire install process and made sure Swype is checked in your Language and Keyboard settings, open Messaging, tap Compose message, and tap and hold in the "Tap to add text area". After a few seconds let up and you should see a popup with Input Method. Select Swype and you should be good to go.

    ok, i couldn't get the installer to get the files in the method he described, but if you open the swm-install.sh with text edit you can get the address for the actual swm (sideload wonder machine), then put the address into address bar of your browser, download it, and continue on with step 4! hope that helps, if not write back.

    Excellent work, Skroll. I didn't try this with my mac, but on my windows 7 laptop everything worked exactly as stated in your instructions. I have skype installed and working on my new HTC Inspire 4G. Thanks!!
