Keyman 12.0 fatal error for older Android devices

I have been using Keyman for Android for many years on my Smartphone Samsung Galaxy J1.

Since October I receive the following error message when I start Keyman: “Fatal error with null. Loading default keyboard”.

I use version 12.0.4209 of Keyman and Android 4.4.4

Hi @Fran

Keyman 12.0 introduced a new feature for Predictive Text services that can be used with keyboards.
Unfortunately, it’s currently incompatible with some older devices (Android 4.4 to Android 6.0) and prevents a Keyman keyboard from loading.

@joshua_horton started working on a fix but we don’t have an estimate when that will be ready.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but can you roll back to Keyman 11.0.2107 for now?

We are working hard on trying to get a fix by the end of this week to resolve this on older Android devices.

Thank you very much.
