Sorry if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move if it isnt

OK so I done the official 2.2.1 update via kies (PDA:JS5 Phone:JPY CSC:JS4) once my phone booted back up I was greeted with the PhoneSetupWizard.

Once I click finish I get
"PhoneSetupWizard (process has stopped unexpectedly."
and after I click the only option force closing it, it makes me restart the wizard all over again.

So my initial thought was it was just an error during update so I flashed I9000BOJS5 firmware and same thing happened.

I can still receive calls and texts and reply to them but cant minimize the wizard, I can however hold down the home key and get to the task manager and "End" the wizard but it just reappears and I can get to the notification bar.

All I can think of doing is to remove the PhoneSetupWizard.apk

Now, I only see a few options ahead of me
1. Somehow turn on debug mode and uninstall the PhoneSetupWizard.apk with the android SDK.

2. Re-flash the phone with some modified files that do not include the PhoneSetupWizard.apk (if that is possible)

These are long shots - dont even know if they will work

-Flash to 2.1 use the bypass trick to get to settings and turn on debug mode, un-install the apk, and flash to 2.2.1 again.

-Root the phone using a and hopefully giving me root access while USB connected and remove the files from within windows.

-Flash a custom Rom and bypass the setupwizard.

From what I can tell the Phone is fully functional i just need to get past the Wizard crash loop.

(Don't know if this helps)

I had this problem when I didn't clean out my caches during a full re-install of a custom rom, can you get into anything to clear them, as in do you have CWM installed?

Or better still goto and do a full stock custom and install that, if you have any worries beforehand about the residual data, then use this process

This is the method I have USED to get me out of the sh!t a few times now

In the S"**ht i find that flash to stock Eclair via Odin with pit 512 and repartition checked followed by a flash to Froyo is often the best and quickest .
Thats when a simple flash to Froyo does not clear the problem .
