Solution - Clear the clipboard
I had the exact same problem and have found a solution that works for me without factory reset, so I wanted to share it - it might work for other people too.
The solution is to clear the clipboard - it seems that the clipboard can crash the keyboard.
To clear the clipboard you can use an app or clear the /data/clipboard folder. (as I did). To do this you have to root the device and delete the the directory and recreate it.
After this everything works just fine.
If you don't know how to root android device or delete a folder - you can look it up, there is plenty of information about this.
A workaround to install new apps ( for instance SuperUser for root privileges) when everything is crashing is to send yourself an email with the link to the app. On the device open your gmail app and just click the link - you can install the app without having to search for it.
