[Q] Strange Crashes
Hi, used this site for a long time as a guest for info and registered as I have an odd problem I have been unable to resolve. A quick sequence of events. exact problem in bold
Phone updated to JB no problems in 2013.
Rooted using a file from Phil3759 (or something like that) no problems. Used it for about 6 months or so
All Super user installed etc etc, no issues with phone at all.
9 January. Not sure if I deleted something I shouldn't have and the contacts app continuously said "contacts list is updating please wait"
nothing came of this.
The phone was running really slow so i thought i would do a factory reset anyhow. All proceeded without issue. Same problem persisted.
I did a "full unroot is SuperSU" or waterer the app is called and the problem still persists with the addition that the software updates no longer work AND it now says my phone is modified
where it did not previously.
Fair enough, it is modified after all.
So now, every time I open either the Contacts app or the Phone app the device crashes completely and needs to reset. Everything else on the phone works fine, including the ability to download and install apps from the play store. Has anyone got any ideas how to fix it?
so far I have an essentially virgin device and i have not set up any accounts on it whatsoever, I have also no installed apps other than what the factory reset leaves you with. I also untucked all the sync options previously and tried clearing cache from the google apps i could identify
Am at a bit of a loose end. I can use contacts+ but would rather not.
