Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I really am stuck and didnt know what else to do.
I have managed to get android on my switch. First I used the stock version of GAPPS and that was fine, but it kept crashing. So I downloaded nano gapps. Now this runs much better, but as soon as setup loads it become apparent that I have no keyboard, just voice activation. I've looked in the settings and can find that there is no virtual keyboard I can select and I cannot toggle voice activation.
Second of all, upon skipping all the settings because I have no keyboard, it then loads into android but is stuck on the "andorid is starting screen". It will stay like this for over an hour if leave it and would probably just contiune.
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to download another version of GAPPS? Do I need to do a clean install? if so how?
I'm lost and can't seem to get any info on how to fix my problem :-(
Thanks in advance.
Rach

Thats baffling...

Android always comes with a keyboard gapps or not. Redownload the install image, and install again via etcher, would be my best guess.

Alos - read the Switchroot thread in here - there were some issues with afaik 'higher speed' sdcards and etcher, that didnt seem quite ironed out yet. So maybe 14 USD into a new sdcard would solve all of your issues.

Found the answer in the end. Has to re-install the image again, it was due to the fact that I had tried to install gaps again after doing the initial setup. Spoke to the switchroot team on discord and they were able to help. It was a tricky problem though. Thanks for replying
