    You should still be able to uninstall Swype. It's not Motorola proprietary software which *needs* to be on the phone. Still, I'm no tech expert, so I'll let one of our Rescue Squad guys answer your question.

    The atrix has swype installed as a system file. Without root you can't uninstall system files. You are correct in thinking to update swype you must uninstall it. If you decide to root ill help you, let me know.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    Thanks Sam, I'm glad you clarified that. I'm also glad I told Cbrunn to wait for one of the R/S guys, for the CORRECT answer.
