 You'll probably need to reboot your device.  You could try toggling the sync
checkbox to make it restart a sync, but this may not complete fix things.
 Force stopping built-in applications is playing with fire. :)  (Fwiw,
possibly you force stopped the apk in gapps that managers the connection to
the google services, so you no longer are getting tickles to cause updates
and other things related to your account.)

2. How to Develop a Custom Soft Keyboard

In v1.5 of the SDK, the release notes include "Support for user
installation of 3rd party keyboards". So the API allows you to design
a custom keyboard layout within a single app. But how might one go
about developing a custom keyboard that a user could download and
install (as opposed to compiling your own build of Android), that
would replace the soft system keyboard in all instances?

Is there any online documentation for how to get started on doing this?
