Hello Everyone!

All of a sudden today my trusty old Galaxy S5 DUOS phone started throwing the Google Services Framework has stopped error.
I have tried all guides I've been able to find on this and it says to go in under the App settings and clear all the data, but when I try this it crashes.
I can't get into the Play Store to check for updates either.

Is there a way to fix this? Update framework and store by a TWRP flashable zip or something like that?

Any help that you can offer would be much appreciated!

I could try to backup everything and then flash with Lineage OS or something similar in the way of a more modern OS but I can't say I'm crazy about the idea. It would take a VERY long time to do so the best thing would be if one could "just" fix the problem at hand without needing a full reinstall.

The phone is rooted with SuperSU and has TWRP recovery installed on it.

Did you use root permissions to remove or disable any system apps? If so, you may have disabled/uninstalled a system app that relies on Google Services to work, this would cause the "Services framework has stopped" error. Re-enabling or reinstalling the app or apps would fix the issue.

But....

First, try booting into TWRP then select the "Wipe" option, then select "advanced wipe", then select ONLY the cache partition and the dalvik cache, then swipe the slider to initiate the wipe. When you reboot the device, try seeing if you can use Playstore to update your Google apps, you may have to update more than one of them.

If that doesn't work, you can try downloading the most up to date Gapps.zip for your specific architecture and flash it in TWRP, wipe cache partition and dalvik partition(DO NOT FACTORY RESET IN TWRP) after flashing the Gapps.zip then reboot into system.

If that doesn't work, you may have to flash your stock firmware, this will remove root and TWRP, you'd have to root the device again and install TWRP again. If you flash the firmware, make sure to use the HOME CSC to preserve your user data during the flash.

look inside here:


Thank you very much for the suggestion, but I tried all of it and it did nothing to help the situation. HOWEVER, I started looking at DeGoogling the phone and putting in MicroG instead, and one of the steps in the process was putting in Magisk (instead of SuperSu) ...

When I got to removing the Xposed Framework ... and rebooted the phone, it optimized all the apps on the phone, and then.... booted, no crashing Google Play Framework anymore, I could run Play Store and update my apps - everything....

SO.... Xposed Framework caused the Google Play Framework to crash constantly (all of a sudden)??

Thank you very much for the in-depth and very helpful instructions on how to get the phone working again, however as you can see in the reply further down I managed to get it back to working properly again by... as I understand it -- removing SuperSU and the Xposed Framework.

After I did this and rebooted the phone it started optimizing all the apps of the phone and then ... everything worked as normal again. But I have printed out the instructions/suggestions you gave me for future reference if I happen upon something similar. So once again Thank You very much!

You should be able to have root and Xposed and use the device without issues. There is a way to make it all work together, you just need to figure out exactly why the issue was occurring.

Everything seems to be rock solid right now after uninstalling Xposed Framework (same thing happening on my mom's Samsung Tab S which also had Xposed Framework installed)... I used it mainly to remove the ads on Youtube, and since Youtube Vanced came into existence.... I don't really need Xposed anymore. So all is good :)
