    Question Atrix Swype keyboard (root or not to root?)

    Me again. I would like to install the Swype keyboard on my Atrix, but haven't been able to do so, apparently because the Atrix is not rooted. (BTW, I've a lot of good luck with Swype...it fits my entry style and I've had no problems with it on my Nexus One.) My question: Should I go ahead an root the Atrix and if I do, what are the pros/cons of rooting?
    If I decide to go ahead and root, would some please send some rooting/app options that are fairly straight forward so I don't brick my Atrix. Thanks!

    If you would like to root, here is the best place to look for the current method : [Root] Update and Root on 8.3

    If you want to use Swype, it's already installed on the phone, no root necessary. Just long press in any text field and change the input method to Swype!

    Cheers!

    Monsta is right....Swype is built into the Atrix...no need to download anything. I fell in love with Swype on my Nexus, so I was thrilled that it was included on the Atrix.

    What???

    You JUST tried out Swype?

    How long have you had this phone for? You're slacking, sir. I'm not sure how things are in Tulsa, but you gotta be quicker than that here!
