    Just updated galaxy note 8 to 4.2. At startup it asks for info that requires input from the keyboard. But says “unfortunately android keyboard has stopped working” .can’t continue. Had to flash back to 4.1 any ideas

    Hi Richard

    I don’t think you can roll back in a stock android sytem.
    Research on how to root your device, then install a custom rom. Costom roms are light years head of bloated stock roms.
    A good start will be in xda dev. forum.

    Good luck

    Hello Guys,

    I’ve installed the ROM – JellyTime 4.3 Beta 6

    I have cleared the data for the app Android keyboard (AOSP)

    But, I don’t see the app Dictionary Provider on the All Apps page, rather I see “User Dictionary”. But, ‘Clear Data’ button is disabled for this App. I clicked on ‘Force Stop’. But, nothing changed. The phone is showing same pop-up “Unfortunately, Android keyboard (AOSP) has stopped on Android “…

    Please help me in resolving this issue.

    It really worked thank you very much. I was frustrated by the message that continuously popping up.

    Thanks Boss. The “Clear Data” option did not work, but when I “disabled the Dictionary Provider” all went well.
    My month long nightmare is finally over.

    Thanks! This helped me resolve this issue with a Nexus S 4g (crespo4g) with a CM11 Nightly build that I recently installed the Android Lollipop keyboard onto. THANK YOU AGAIN.
