I was struggling with setup wizard has stopped working and was fed up of this.
So i just went to the setup wizard app and gave it contacts and phone permission and it finally worked.
This error generally comes with CM roms so this fix will work with CM based roms and might work with other ROMs also.:p

Steps:
1) Flash ROM
2) Flash any gapps
If you get setup wizard error then continue the steps below and yes you need patience to do this because it will keep on popping up until you fix it. You need to keep on tapping and scroll down for a while.
3) When you see setup wizard error pull down notification drawer and open settings
4) Scroll down and tap "Apps"
5) Click on 3 dots at the top right corner.
6) Select show system apps
7) Scroll down until you see 2 Setup wizard.(If you have RESURRECTION REMIX ROM you will see only one)
There will be 2 setup wizard,one wil CM logo and other with android.
8) Select one with android logo.
9) Tap on force stop
10) Select ok
11) Scroll down and enable permissions(Contacts & Phone)
12) Now press the home button


You should now see your home screen :good:

It just a simple fix.
Because of permissions that were needed by setup wizard were not fulfilled this error keeps on popping up.
Hope you guys now have fixed this and got you CM.

Cool. Updated my p5210 to latest CM13 and kept getting 'google play services has stopped'. Tried to reflash CM and latest gapps. That's when I got 'setup wizard has stopped' message. Spent a long time wiping and refreshing. Then I found your guide, and now all's honky dory! Thanks a lot

what rom?
if thats custom rom with gapps? then thats gapps issue. just reflash the rom, use opengapps.org for the gapps.

if its stock, then look here, get the stock rom zip and flash it via twrp, a clean install recommended. :good:

Setup Wizard too fast to click anything

I was hoping the solution posted here would solve my problem as well, but it did not.

Clicking the "OK" on my "Setup Wizard" screen dismisses the box for 0.25ms. I have NO chance to click anything else or get to settings to Force Stop it.

Sigh.

Any other suggestions?

    I leave this here, as it may help someone :
    After flashing Resurrection Remix v5.8.3, I had the same issue with the setup wizard. The method of the first post didn't work (clicking on home button would not do anything). I worked this out by simply connecting to a wi-fi network. Once you have internet access, wizard setup doesn't crash anymore.

    i could not get it to pull down the notification drawer at first, here is what i did:

    1 , go thru the wizard again.
    2, right after it crashes hurry pull down notification drawer
    3, go into settintgs,
    4, connect to a wifi (your wifi)
    4, go all the way back and try again ;)
