The phone crashed, and when it rebooted, I had these issues: Settings were reset (including the device ID), the home button didn't work, the power menu was missing entries, the quick settings menu was empty, the notifications drawer was empty, and the search app wouldn't launch the chrome browser with the result link.
Settings can obviously be set by hand. But the home button, etc, were a pain. I fixed through two steps, culled from here and here
1. Run adb shell
3. sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
4. “update global set value=1 where name=’device_provisioned’;”
This fixed everything but the quick settings.
To fix that, part 2:
1. adb shell am start -n com.google.android.setupwizard/.SetupWizardTestActivity
2. Step through the setup again.
I'd note that this appears to be a more general kit-kat issue, likely unrelated to this rom.
Hope this helps someone.
Cheers. Like I said, I love this rom, so many thanks to playful god, who will probably never see this buried in the general forum.
