Download: Themed Swype for DROID X

I know that Droid X users probably felt a little left out yesterday with all of the Swype’s flying around for the original Droid and the Incredible, so we wanted to bring you some new toys to play with.  There is a batch of themed Swypes available for rooted Droid X users that you must check out.  Colors range from red to green to black to blue and all have color coordinated tracers to match the particular theme.


Download: Black |  Blue |  Red |  Green


*Note* – If you want to save your original Swype file for safe keeping, use Root Explorer and find it in /system/app.  Make a copy of it and save it somewhere on your SD card.

1.  You have to be rooted.
2.  Open Koush’s Droid X Bootstrap, bootstrap recovery (if you haven’t) and then reboot recovery.
2.  Scroll down to “install zip from sdcard.”
3.  Select “choose zip from sdcard.”
4.  Select the themed Swype file that you downloaded above and “yes” to install it.
5.  Reboot your system.
6.  Enjoy your new Swype!
