Starting to play with my XA2 (Dual Sim) with the beta license. As I work through my beta pains, I am asking for advice regarding one that's recurring: The android subsystem repeatedly triggers a notification roughly containing: "configure physical keyboard - tap to selct a language and keyboard layout", which I cannot act on (when tapping the notification disappears and nothing else happens). How to remedy this (select a keyboars/language for android)?

Thanks for any hint.

This notification seems to pop up every time android subsystem is started. Tapping it sometimes takes me to some otherwise hidden and broken android settings, where if I tap anything the settings view crashes.

It looks like "settings", but unlike jolla's/sailfish's - and it doesn't always crash. At one time I was able to change permissions for android apps. However I can't close it by swiping (ends in a dark blue screen). And I can't find it anywhere - sometimes it appears on my screen.

Same here.

Turns out the android subsystem using the v16 ov the Android vendor image was quite broken on my X2A Dual Sim and updating to v17B worked wonders, including dealing with weirdnesses like the one observed here. See here for a discussion.
