I tried moving the files as described on page 2 & 3 of this thread with my T-Mobile Galaxy S5 (G900T) Lollipop 5.0 and now I'm getting repeated error messages saying "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped." flashing up that are almost completely preventing me from doing anything. Unfortunately I made a very noob mistake and forgot to back up the stock SystemUI.apk and SystemUI.odex.xz files. I desperately need someone to please attach the original stock SystemUI.apk and SystemUI.odex.xz files for the G900T to this thread ASAP so I can fix my mistake. I already tried the stock files posted on page 5 of this thread but they must be for a different model because the phone is still having the same problem. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
EDIT: Ok so I found what sounds like the stock SystemUI.apk file included with the ROM on the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2732110
and what I think is the stock SystemUI.odex file (although it seems to be missing the ".xz" after the odex extension). I replaced the files currently on the phone with those new ones but was still getting the same error message. I think I forgot to mention that I also lost the notification bar/panel and the background/wallpaper is completely black. I've tried rebooting the device and sometimes it gets stuck in either “Android is upgrading…” or “Starting apps.” and I have to pull the battery to shut it off. I went ahead and cleared the cash partition and used ODIN to reflash the CF-Auto-Root https://download.chainfire.eu/407/CF...mo-smg900t.zip
but am still having the same problems. I’ve learned my lesson to not play in the realm of the Gods so please, can anybody tell me what to do to fix my phone?
EDIT: I tried rebooting into Safe Mode and the error message came up twice then stopped appearing. When I rebooted in normal mode the error message again came up twice then stopped. The background is still black, no notification bar/panel, no swipe to unlock. This looks like a firmware issue to me but I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really know what I’m doing. Where do I go from here? Am I going to have to do a full factory reset and try to start all over or is there an easier way to fix this? If I have to do a factory reset is there a way to backup my apps and app settings/data first so I don’t have to reinstall everything and try to remember how I had all the settings? Thanks.
EDIT: When accessing Application Manager from Settings I get ”Unfortunately, Package Access Helper has stopped”.
EDIT: I finally figured it out. I performed two hard factory resets and was still having the problem. So then I used Oden to flash the original stock Bootloder, Modem, Kernal, and Recovery individually from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/tmob.../odin-t3038413
, but was still having the problem. Finally I flashed the whole firmware package with Odin from the same thread and it seems to have finally fixed the problem.
