Nexus 5 consistently having apps crash

OP adrianvfx

Lately my Nexus 5 has been having some issues. I first started noticing this when I'd get artifacts popping up while on chrome. Then during reboot, play services would crash, and sometimes the launcher would refuse to start. Then other apps like Hangouts would refuse to let me view messages without a app crash. Even 3rd party apps have crashed on me.

I've done a full wipe and put stock 4.4.2, three different times now and within a day I get the same symptoms all over again.

This has been going on for over a week, I have absolutely no idea what to do now.

Any ideas? Is perhaps the storage bad? Any way to test it? Or what should I do.

Thanks

Flash clean stock and don't install a single app for those few days and see what happens.

If nothing, install just a few apps at a time per day. If it suddenly starts....you'll know its one of the few apps you just installed.

That's all I got. Lol

Are you flashing a custom kernel with it? Are you undervolting at all, running art? I specifically ask for undervolting, cause that will cause things to crash | reboot.

No, no custom kernel. Everything I got was from googles factory image site. https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-02006b99.tgz
And I've never undervolted before. I could root and perhaps increase the clock speed. Also not running ART. I did a few months ago, but switched back.

Well aside from rooting, best you can do is force stop all those apps, particularly the ones that are crashing specifically, then clear those caches from the menu. After you've done all your problem apps, reboot.

If he did a full wipe and installed a fresh stock image....caches aren't the issue. Its probably one app wreaking havoc. Lol
