Gingerbread Multi-touch keyboard freezes/locks up
Hello everyone, I've had a problem that has seemed to plague me in the past 24 hours. My droid x stock gingerbread multi touch keyobard has been locking up/freezing every time i press a punctuation or the symbols key to get to the punctuations. The only way to fix this is with a battery pull or switch the input method to swype while text box is still open and then switching back. I hope there is a simpler remedy that doesn't involve wiping data or putting a newer version of gingerbread on it. By the way the gingerbread version i have is 4.5.573.
I actually wouldn't mind using the swype keyboard, but i don't like how it doesn't have the predictive text bar along top of the keyboard like the multitouch has. In order to get their predictive pop up is b swyping and sometimes i just don't feel like swyping.
Thank you for your help in advance

Re: Gingerbread Multi-touch keyboard freezes/locks up
Here is the simple fix:
Go to Manage Apps>ALL and find the MultiTouch Keyboard. Clear data or cache and the problem will be fixed.
Very strange that this started happening to me out of nowhere. Even more strange that my gf's X picked up the issue the next day...
Hope this works for you all. The freezing has not occurred in over a week and counting.

SwiftKey X a very decent keyboard, usually 3.99 is the free app of the day in the Amazon android app market if anyone's interested
Sent from the X of BYea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.
