I'm on the latest asopmod/cmod7 (Gingerbread) I just got the newest beta that's back open personally though I like the Gingerbread keyboard better than any other the keys are smaller and more spaced which has been a lot better from my experience between the stock froyo keyboard and this

I have my phone rooted.. and it's pretty simple. Get Titanium backup.. if you want make a backup, I didn't. Uninstall Swype through Titanium, then install the updated beta. Bam, and no more annoying window every single time you hit a word that's the one next down on the list, woo!

Talking about that annoying window...you can turn it off in the settings or make it appear less often.
Customize whether Swype displays the Word Choice window by setting the 'Word Choice Window' slider in Swype Advanced Settings.
- To see the Word Choice Window less frequently, set the slider towards the left.
- If you are very distracted by the Word Choice window popping up, you can set the slider all the way to the left so that the Word Choice Window will never be shown automatically.
- To see the Word Choice Window more frequently, if you prefer to select the correct word right away as each word is entered, set the slider further towards the right.
Try the default setting – you will find that the Word Choice Window usually pops up when you need it to. Remember that even when the Word Choice Window pops up, if you start Swyping a word, the window will be dismissed and the default word (at the top) will be output.

In the version of Swype that is installed on the Optimus V, the "Hidden Word Tip" popup cannot be disabled. But the Swype Beta maintenance update on 3/10/2011 added a feature to only display that popup once.

I uninstalled the stock Swype thru Titanium Backup and installed the latest Swype beta last night. This morning, I was greeted with the message:
Sorry! The application Swype (process com.swype.android.inputmethod) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
EDIT: I power-cycled my phone and I started getting that error message repeatedly. I'm following the instructions in this thread to see if that will resolve the issue: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...up-z4root.html

I tried removing the stock swype in froyo and downloading the beta, but it refused to install. Just as well, I like gingerbread better anyway.
too bad about the word choice window not being optional in swype beta 3, I sure don't like being unable to turn it off. other than that, I haven't noticed much difference in the beta versions.
I'm about to roll back to the 2.x beta I downloaded last, from my nandroid backup, to get rid of the extra screen-blocking popup for word choice.
the beta 3 still pops up the hidden word tip at me, as well. ugh.
