I updated my Huawei P9 today and Google’s gboard got turned on by default, and it won’t permit me to disable it.

Usually I can switch from Japanese to Korean/English language and back, now everytime I want to switch, it goes Japanese to Gboard to Korean to Gboard and back.

Hither is the method to disable GBoard on stock Android phones (Steps for Huawei phones should be pretty similar)

  1. Go into Settings and tap on Apps

  2. Locate GBoard from the list of apps and tap on it

  3. On the next screen tap on the Disable push

  1. Disable your virtual keyboards.
  2. If you are on Windows and have noesis about using adb, then from CMD shell launch:

                        adb vanquish am showtime com.android.settings/.inputmethod.InputMethodAndSubtypeEnablerActivity
                        
                      
  3. Untick “Apply system language”

  4. Select the keyboards yous want.

  • Hi there. Could you please give more details about this solution ? What do you hateful by disable virtual keyboards ? where do you untick “Use system language” ? Does this demand a rooted phone, or does information technology piece of work on stock ?

  • @mhham
    am start
    works without root, it merely launches a regular activity. Without trying, it looks like this will work all on vendor-owned (unrooted) phones though I oasis’t tried it myself and some of the other answers here besides don’t universally work and so take that for what it’southward worth.

Every bit far as I tin encounter from the screenshot you dont have whatsoever other keyboard enabled except for Gboard. And Android wont allow you to take “no keyboard”. Enable the Huawei keyboard and and so y’all will probably exist able to disable the Gboard.

  • Are you proverb “Google Japanese Input” etc aren’t keyboards?

  1. Open a terminal (either through
    adb crush
    or just on your device).
  2. Get super user privileges:
    su
  3. Disable gboard with the package manager:
    pm disable com.google.android.inputmethod.latin

This worked on a Huawei P10 Lite. Not exactly a P9 every bit you accept, but maybe it works for you equally well.

I haven’t tried without super user access, maybe it also works on vendor-endemic devices if you skip the
su
control.

Yous tin download another keyboard app from Google Play Store or elsewhere then go to
Setting > Language and Input.

There, you lot tin run into your default or Gboard and the keyboard app you only installed. Now you can only click on default keyboard and click on the keyboard y’all want.
