Swype is available on B136 and B137.. it's just not automatically installed for some reason. The swype installer is inside /cust which you can navigate to using any file manager. Also you'll fine Huawei IME and Layar.

Do I need that Cust folder? or can I delete the contents?

Didn't have the chance to thank you earlier when I first got my phone.

So, now, thank you for compiling all in one guide for this phone! :)

IMO, it's better if you just rename it and put .bak in the end.

For me, in my cust folder I have maxis (which is a carrier) then my (country I supposed). I went into app then rename every .apk in there and give .bak at the end.

All of the apps inside the folder was not installed.

Hope that helps.

P/S - not sure if it's safe to delete though. but my suggestion is to just rename it.

I wonder if its possible to obtain a guide about how each launcher work with U8800. Would really love to see a such guide with pictures and explanations.

Your welcome to post up a review of each launcher and how it performs on the U8800 :)

The choice of launcher is quite personal I think. Some prioritize speed, others eye candy (and so on..).

One thing that I can say is that I don't know why so many are using LauncherPro. I experience Go Launcher Ex being faster, more customizable and it's free! So if you are looking for something else than LauncherPro, try Go Launcher Ex.

If you want lightweight there is Zeam, but that was too lightweight for me.

But I would say that launchers are very personal.

The official B137 does not come with any special applications and it's pretty much clean. So I would say no you are not missing it but you could maybe add it later. I would recommend waiting for CM7 which should be something special for our device U8800.

So after trying everything, I can't access the swype. I copy the Swype_U8800_euro.pak from cust folder. (Huawei ime etc.) And Install it. Everything work fine but when i go the swype settings, it give a stopped workingg swype.android.input.method error. And not working. I guess i don't have any other options but wait for CM7.

Remove any trace of the old swype and use swype 3.0 beta. It's awesome. CM7 will NOT include swype since it is proprietary software. Use the beta, I haven't had any issues.

Check all these places for any files with swype in the name:

/data/app

/data/data

/data/lib

/cust_backup (and all subsequent folders)

Then install swype beta.

Available Languages Here: http://beta.swype.com/android/supported/

One thing I find bad is the MIUI rom is incomplete :rolleyes:

I wish really badly it will be fixed and worked around more, I miss the excitement I had with Blade. Always updates news changes and happy people and generous developers !

I wish people could upgrade and join the U8800 crew :rolleyes:

I have a question about adding the line windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=75 in the build.prop file. Is it OK to just add it at the end of the file or should I put it on some other specific place within the file?

At the end should be fine :)
