Swype Input keyboard ripped for most devices
You almost have to feel sorry for the companies that dare place their proprietary software onto a Windows phone these days. For if it is good software, the hounds are let loose to rip it out and .cab it for all others to use within moments.
The latest victim would be Swype, the new fangled keyboard app that is featured on the Verizon Omnia II.
The app is available in .cab form and acts just like another optional input system on your device, so there is no need to only use it while learning its funky moves. It is suppose to work on Touch Pro 2, Diamond 2 (Pure) and other VGA+ devices, though mileage may vary (reports of ROM variation having an effect have been reported).

Number one -- almost ALL custom rom communitys (ppc geeks, xda, modaco) do not condone piracy what-so-ever. As soon as Swype told us about this (on modaco at least), the mods there posted a message saying that swype was NOT to be offered at all on that site for cab download or as part of a custom rom. Then, Swype were nice enough to let the i920 chefs integrate swype into their custom roms, since it came with the phone when we bought it anyways.
