    I've been getting intermittent gapps crashes at boot. Did some research on it, worried that it was something I had done causing it. I've discovered that, in my case, it was Google Keyboard causing the problem. According to others, Swiftkey is also an issue, and possibly other keyboards. Textra was also mentioned, but I have it and am not getting the crash as long as Google Keyboard off. The finger of blame seems to be pointing at LG rather than the keyboards themselves though. Since I reboot infrequently, I may just tolerate it since good keyboards are hard to find. Maybe it's because it's a non system keyboard? I may test that theory. Anyway, just wanted to share this discovery.

    Update: Making Google Keyboard a system app did no good. Now using Kii Keyboard with no problems.

    Good for you. :p It seems to be some sort of bug, not necessarily a problem for everyone, it even inconsistent for me. Out of curiosity, is it the only keyboard you have enabled?

    Hmmm...I don't have Google voice typing though

    No overly concerned about it... I actually like thud keyboard better. It's smaller and is laid out better. Keys show the alt character for all keys, and I don't need any of the 'premium' features.

    I tried a few different keyboards, have you tried minuum I think it's called? I couldn't get used to it. I like swiping.

    I think I may have tried it, but if it didn't have a swype function, then yeah, I'm not gonna use it.

    This one is pretty nice. You ought to try it out.
