I'm in the UK
I updated to OTA 4.4.3 yesterday on my Nexus 4
Completely stock and un-rooted.
Basically woke up this morning and my phone was in an infinite loop of "Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped"
After taking quite a while on it, I uninstalled GEL and uninstalled Google Search updates, reinstalled them both. Removed all data from Google Play services and set up GEL again; exactly the same thing happened.
I also then realised that this was happening on my Nexus 7 as well, I managed to get my Nexus 4 Google Now working offline; but as soon as it reconnects it crashes.
I believe that it is picking up some rouge data from Google's servers it cannot handle then crashing, but I cannot find a way at all to remove my settings and options from my google account, I can't find any record of this happening elsewhere today but it may be that google's servers have wibbled and a lot of people are experiencing this; in the meantime though my phone is practically unusable.
OK; so I have got it back up and running by disabling GEL and Google Now; but I want my Google Now back!
I'm happy to wipe the device if it fixes it; but worried that it's on my online profile anyway, so first of all is anybody else having the same issues today and second of all is there any way online (web based) to change my Google now settings and disable cards, etc?
