Default SwiftKey won't stay as default

I can't get SwiftKey to stick as the default app.
It always pops up the HTC keyboard after a while.

This seems to be a problem with SwiftKey. To fix it I disabled all other keyboards with Titanium Backup.

The issue is that Google Play installs paid apps in a particular location on your phone and that in some versions of Android this location is not available at the point in the boot process where keyboards are being switched on. So your phone does not know that you have SwiftKey, and it defaults back to the phone's keyboard.

I've googled the issue already, it's not this.
It's worked on viper rom normally before.
But now after reflashed everything, it doesn't work.

It's not a boot issue, it will overwrite the SwiftKey app at random, or when the screen is off for a while (when I'm not using SwiftKey).
