All Desire Z owners have been cranking out roms, mods, and more over the past couple of weeks. One of the most popular ones out there is undoubtedly CyanogenMod. However, applying this to your device has a small consequence, you will lose Swype. What is more, since Swype can only be used by officially licensed devices, you will not find swype apks floating around XDA. XDA member oldsk00lz has figured out a method to install CyanogenMod and keep Swype. Not only that, but the dev has also made an app to make the process easier for all users.
If you are interested in this, make sure you drop by the thread and leave some feedback for the dev as well.

You can find more information in the application thread.
