I see this is an international issue in the newsfeeds but have not yet seen any verified fix methods. I'm really hoping to avoid a factory reset since I have some legally significant texts that are not backed up externally yet.
I have a Liquid Zest phone ( not sure what flavour right now ) that was working fine. I understand a GBoard software update came through and now the on-screen keyboard does not show up from the lock screen so I can't enter my lock screen password. Power cycle and restart cycle don't help. Data and WiFi were previously turned off to save battery. I could try to use a USB cable to link to my laptop, if there is a fix there.
Is there an Acer or Google corporate response coming?
