Reverts to default keyboard at reboot / restart
After I updated my device to Jelly Bean, Swiftkey keeps returning to android default keyboard after restart or shutdown. I uninstalled the keyboard and re-installed it but nothing happened. Everytime the phone loads the OS i go to setting and configure again Swiftkey
I set SwiftKey as default keyboard; it changes back to the default Android keyboard upon a reboot of the phone.
After rebooting my tablet, default keyboard is set to the android keyboard. I have to set SwiftKey manually every time. I think this issue has something to do with when the internal sd is mounted after reboot, because SwiftKey save language packages in internal sd.
This has been ongoing from some time now. Any chance of it getting fixed?
Be able to select swift key as a default keyboard. So when you turn your phone on it is already selected
I set my default keyboard to SwiftKey but it won't stay when I reboot or shutdown, it revert to samsung keyboard
Keyboard resets to default android keyboard every time I reboot my Samsung Galaxy S3. Using latest AT&T update, I was using Beta version of SwiftKey and uninstalled prior to upgrading SwiftKey.
This is really annoying because every time I turn off the phone and turn it back on my SwiftKey is not appearing it wasn't a problem before but now is a constant.
Every time I turn on my phone after jellybeans update, the phone reverts back to stock keyboard instead of SwiftKey on galaxy S3
After updating to JB, SwiftKey lost the ability to remain the default keyboard upon system restart.
Give us a default option.
Whenever my phone gets turned off it automatically resets back to a different keyboard options.
Is there a way to make SwiftKey my default keyboard?

I have Galaxy Note 2. Because auto correction does not work I use the SwiftKey keyboard that I've purchased, however with every reboot keyboard switches back to stock!
Every time I reboot my s3 running jb 4.1.1 the keyboard reverts to the stock Samsung keyboard. Why does it not keep SwiftKey?
Every time I reboot my SGS3 running JB, the phone defaults to the stock keyboard meaning I have to manually select it in the settings.
Getting a little tedious now.
Every time my phone is powered off my keyboard setting are switched back to default instead of swiftkey, Which causes me to go back to my phone settings and switch it back to how it was before my phone powered off

We have contacted Samsung regarding this problem – they acknowledged the issue and have checked that it does not occur in their latest update. They intend to roll out Android 4.2.2 to Galaxy S3 users in the near future (unfortunately we don’t have an exact date), at which point the problem should be fixed.
Explanation of the issue:
We are aware of the issue where your phone reverts to the stock keyboard on reboot and we appreciate that it is very annoying.
We are currently in contact with Google Play to see if there is anything that they can do to fix this.
The issue is that Google Play installs paid apps in a particular location on your phone and that in some versions of Android (particularly 4.1 on Samsung devices) 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.
We are unable to control where Google Play installs the app, and also unable to do anything about the way in which your phone boots up, so we are essentially powerless.
You can read more about the issue here http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=34880 – the issue is listed as “released”, which means that it has been fixed in the code and the fixed version has been released, but we know that it can take months for a new version of Android to reach customers’ phones, which is why we are trying to see if Google Play can do something about it in the shorter term.
Free apps will not be affected, and of course with most apps you just tap them to turn them on once your phone is already fully booted, so it is only with paid apps that offer services like keyboards or widgets that this problem is visible.
If you have not yet used SwiftKey Trial you can download it here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey.phone.trial – it will work for a month, and hopefully by the time that month is over the issue will be resolved. (you can only use SwiftKey Trial one time on each phone – if your phone has tried SwiftKey Trial before then the trial will show up as “expired” immediately and will not work – sorry).
Again, we appreciate that this is not ideal, but we are doing the best that we can to get SwiftKey working for you.

if that's so, why does the trial version boot up accurately and flawlessly every time? its only when you pay to install the full version this crap occurs
Same problem for me.
I have the same problem :( and I paid for..
Issue still exists with galaxy SII i777 on jelly bean. Super annoying
And Its the same on samsung Galaxy note 10.1?
Xperia S (4.1.2) - this bug appeared with latest Swiftkey updates.
Some other Xperia S users, reported it before... please fix asap, I can't understand a phone OS with this kind of -quite big- bugs.
Seems like Android is a "joke", developing apps and not debug them. The users... we make this (their) work as "beta-alpha" testers. Very sad.
Same problem on my S2 Skyrocket ... I've uninstalled the play store app :-(. I love this Swiftkey but it's driving me nuts ... I'm on the Amazon trial HOPING to get a solution in a month ... Installing this method seems to solve the problem after reboots ! If not fixed when trial is over i may need to find something else ... Fingers Crossed !!!

Kenny Mason commented
I have to designate SwiftKey as my input preference every time I restart my phone. It wasn't like this before... Whatever happened, make but unhappen. I didn't buy the app for it to be a pain in my ass. Please fix the problem or the next uninstall will be permanent.

Agustín Sabater commented
I have the same problem. Huawei Ascend G510
Same happens in HTC one :'(
I have this problem on my HTC One, with latest stock 4.1.2-based software.
After every reboot, I have to reactivate SwiftKey.
I have this problem without my phone even rebooting. It happens intermittently. Note 2. Latest firmware. No root. No SD card.

Hi, What is the status of this issue? It is more than annoying at this point. I am running Android 4.1.2 GS II Skyrocket I-727. I can confirm the comments from the others. The Samsung keyboard does not come close. Swiftkey rocks. And I do not buy that many apps either.. :)
I can confirm that this bug is NOT occuring with the Amazon App Store!!!
Now happy with my Swiftkey! <3
I hate this issue because it's also happening to my Note II. But at the same time this makes me realize how crappy and outdated the Samsung keyboard is every time I reboot my phone. I love my Swiftkey board and hopefully this issue will be resolved soon. Good luck Swiftkey team members.
