It keep crushing a lot. It's making me crazy.
I've tried some solutions that i find in the web, like:
- Rebot and wipe dalvik - not work
- Try to erase the google acount - it cannot be done because "some apps are related to, but you can do a factory reset". Of course i wont, i have much data.
So, do you guys have any other solution?
I was going to make a nandroid backup and then install an old gapp that comes with the ROM i use.
It is safe? Or do you recomend something else.
if you have a working nandroid backup, it should be safe, no?
i had a similar problem; i integrated an update to "google play services", didn't wipe anything or odex anything. i had some problems with the search storage (note: i do not even know if it was caused by the update integration, maybe it was due to the gapps package i used), so i tried the same thing you tried: i uninstalled that app, rebooted, and flashed the same gapps package which i originally used when i installed the custom rom. everything went to hell afterwards (force close party). i ended up wiping and re-flashing the rom and another gapps package.
i learned my lesson: do not mess with core system apps, do not integrate their updates. also, it is not possible to revert that integration should you later wish to do so, except if you did a backup before, obviously.
i am sorry if i couldn't be of more help, i primarily wanted to warn other users.
