    ok i have the swype installer on my inspire and i download it and i get the security message. i try to do step 11 while it is on the security screen and it says: The system cannot find the patch specified. and i am inserting "adb pull /data/data/com.swype.android.installer/files/mypackage.apk ./mypackage.apk" and im not getting anything. i have tried on my mac and still nothing. if somebody could explain what i am doing wrong and possibly make a video showing what you are suppose to do exactly once it is on the security screen or post a quick reply explaining what to do. i would appreciate it.

    Thanks for the great detailed instructions! Installation went great and can now see Swype as an option for keyboard.

    Question is, once I selected the swype keyboard in my settings, I'm still not able to swype (still functions as QWERTY).

    Sorry, I'm a noob. any insight would greatly be appreciated!

    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?
    what did you do to fix this? i had the same issue? swype installed and marked but still stock keyboard. i even rebooted.

    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.
    Got it working! THANKS FOR THIS!

    I am a newbie here with the android thing too. Got through all the installation and everything, swype is there as an option. The only thing is that I can't use swype! It'll trace the line but nothing is display. Weird. Help please.

    Edit: I finally got swype to work! After installing swype beta, you'll have to go back to the swype application, tap on it to open it. It'll display a message saying something like "your license is not correct" or something like that and it'll tell you how to fix it. Just uncheck the swype, log in to beta swype again and that's it!

    Sywpe was the main reason that i choose android over iphone, then i fell in love with the HTC inspire and it wasn't preloaded with swype then att put a lock on it so i couldn't download it. It just made me so mad. I tried other sites to try and get it but they never worked. This post was really help full and now i have swype on my htc inspire and i love it. Thanks a lot for this post.

    I scanned through this thread and didn't see this question mentioned... apologies if it has been answered before.

    If I follow this process, am I, at any point, rooting my phone or doing anything that would otherwise void my warranty?

    Thanks for this! I was one of the earlier posters that had this problem. I didn't get the incorrect license message, but now my Swype works properly! Thanks!

    You are great to take the time to do this. I dumped my Iphone got an LG Ally, loved android got the HTC Desire and was about to return it because of the block on install non-market apps. Swype is the greatest thing since the mouse, and you are just as cool for doing this tutorial.

    So this is where I am stuck at... USB Debugging is Enabled and it is in Charge Only Mode. Any clue what I am doing wrong? I am new to Android... Switching from iPhone... I want Swype badly.

    Try changing your input method by going to your text messaging screen and holding down on the box where you input text. Then tap input method and see if swype comes up as an option.

    If you're rooted, it looks like you can just register and install. Very easy.

    How do I go about rooting the inspire? I have jailbroken many iPhones in the past but never rooted an android device.

    It wasn't easy, I used a combo of youtube videos and this forum: HTC Inspire Hack Kit - xda-developers
