Getting Swype working on I5801DDJP2

The latest update for Galaxy 3 GT-I5801 DDJP2 has some issues.

The most noticeable one is Swype keyboard not working!


Swype being the most fastest way for typing on the Galaxy 3, DDJP2 was a major disappointment for G3 users.

There is some good news though you can now get Swype working by following some simple instructions..

You can now get Swype working on DDJP2!
  1. Root your phone with Super One Click from here.
  2. Install Titanium BackUp.
  3. Wipe data and uninstall Swype from Titanium.
  4. Restart your G3.
  5. Opened swypeinc.com and register.
  6. You will get an activation mail in inbox.
  7. Click on activation link, you will again get one mail with "swype installer" link in it.
  8. Install it & Open.
  9. Log in and it will give two options to download
    1. Swype Beta Full (10mb)
    2. Swype English/Spanish (2.5mb)
  10. Choose option 2. English/Spanish.
  11. Download and Install.
  12. Now go to Settings->rom locale and swype enable swype.

    You can just flash 2.1DDJG6 or 2.2DDJP2.
    Flashing new firmware will make ur cell as gud as new..
    you will still have your warranty intact..
    Once you install the swype you can unroot using the same software "Super One Click", to unroot ur phone..

    let me know if u have any questions..

    Its an app! You can find it on Android market.

    You can use it backup all your applications installed on the phone you can also uninstall apps installed on the phone using this!

    In this case we will be using it to remove faulty swype version from the phone and reinstall the latest one from their official website..

    oh thanx....
    n ya, whats the USB debugging mode, while rooting??

  6. @Priyank
    As the name suggests it sets the phone to debug mode used for development.

    It's used by developers to do things like debuging (checking for errors) an app running on an actual phone.

    In some cases you can use debug mode to root your phone, transfer files to SD card, etc..

  14. Sir please tell me which version is best chinese 2.2 or samsung released version? plz tell me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @gurpreet
    The Chinese version ZHJPF is more stable compared to DDJP2 IMO..

    If you don't want to root your phone n go through all the trouble to fix DDJP2 then I recommend ZHJPF..

    ReplyDelete
  18. @gurpreet
    Titanium backup has a free version also, you need to have a rooted phone to use that though!!

    Using Titanium backup you can also remove apps pre-installed on the phone..

  19. In SWYPE official website, they mentioned to remove SWYPE from our phone just like an Android App, using the Managa Application service.

    Is it still necessary to use Titanium & to Root our phone?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Anand
    As Swype is pre-installed by Samsung and is deeply integrated in the firmware, I don't think you can remove it like a normal app.

    Hence the root to remove it.
