Do they come back if you unplug the keyboard/mouse and plug them back in?

Hi Steev, No! I tried different keyboards and mice, reimage my memory card several times, re-download the image several times, I also tested the old version on the same memory card, which it worked. Hope these help!

Can you ssh in to the pi (ssh kali@kali) and then run sudo apt update && sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-libinput && sudo reboot - does that fix the issue for you?

Is there any new fixed 2020.2 release soon or we should use the driver script for every Rasberry Pi 4 we install this version?

The Xorg input driver (what you installed with apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-libinput) was accidentally removed due to some changes last minute. The change was committed to git, no I don't know when it will make it to the website, but yes, I plan to have an updated image sometime within the next week. So yes, you'll need to make the change on any other images you write currently, or you can clone the build scripts and run a build yourself to generate one with the fix.
