Default [Q] Default input method resetting

Hi guys,

I am having an issue on my Nexus 5 (4.4.2, stock, root, xposed) that I can't seem to figure out. My issue is regarding the default input method. For some reason, each time I set my default keyboard to anything other than the Google keyboard, it resets back to the GKB after an unspecified amount of time. I have tried using SwiftKey, Swype, and Fleksy. Each keyboard experiences the same issue.

I don't want to use the Google keyboard, or have to choose a new keyboard almost every time I go to type something.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there an easy fix or workaround?

Thanks for your help.

I freeze all of the imput methods except the one I use. That way, I never have to choose the default imput method because only one is available to the system. And if SwiftKey wonks, I just have to defrost the stock keyboard until I fix it. And no imput method icon in the status bar either.

if you can locate and grab the swiftkey apk, download and install it. installing it that route, vs using the play store to install it, will place the app in the system location that is read and initialized on boot up.

I used Titanium Backup to convert the play store installation of the app to a system app. Google Keyboard still got set as the default input method after an unknown event.

It will never be set as default (or even be a choice) if you freeze it. See my edited post, above.
