After doing a factory reset on my Huawei p9 lite because it was missing a lot of features like the calculator, alarm, notes and even Bluetooth. After it asks me to log in my linked google account, I can't type my email because the Gboard doesn't work, it shows up the microphone and it doesn't even want to listen to my voice!

    How got the device so messed up? Did you managed to get root access and changed the installed system apps?

    I rooted it for 2 years just fine till It got soft-bricked or something similar, but I got it fixed at an official Huawei store where I live for 50$ but I somehow didn't even notice the calc and apps missing until it was too late, I decided to do a factory reset and thought it would fix it, but the keyboard doesn't work, I'm lost on what to do @Robert

    flash stock ROM. make sure flashing process does not include accidentially re-locking bootloader, keep bootloader unlocked

    You can try a USB-OTG cable and connect a USB keybaord.
