I experienced this today too. It rendered my FR useless. Everything I'd finally gotten working yesterday (VTE, Minimo, tasks app) stopped working today, and I'm stuck with, essentially, a brick.

The keyboard doesn't even pop up automatically anymore, and there's no way to add it.

Can someone document what hacks are available to bring the Illume keyboard back, and to manually trigger it with that little "qwerty" button that used to be there, in case the designers decide they don't want users to be able to type things in anymore?
