  6. Essentially these are all stabs in the dark. What works for me may not work for you.. Those are not technical answers (suggestions, sure). Clearly it’s not a solely sd card issue, not solely a specific phone issue, nor a specific app issue. IMHO, don’t do a factory reset unless it’s absolutely necessary. Trawl the web & all of the forums first. I don’t have the magic answer either so I’ll keep looking. They are only minor annoyances in the meantime anyway (well, compared to backups & resets).

  7. Hi,

    I have a Lenovo A7000 and updated it to Marshmallow. Later, another update rolled out to fix some stability issues, thus i downloaded and installed it too. Now everything is working fine, quite smooth and without any lag. All apps work perfectly.

    the only problem is with Google messenger and Google Plus apps.
    When i tap the google messenger to start, it says The app has stopped and then closes. Did everything from clearing cache to reinstalling, but no use.

    With Google plus, when i tap the ‘pencil’ button to write a post, the app closes automatically showing the same message.

    Is there anything to do with Google permissions or the problem is because of Marshmallow update.

  8. I had the same issue, and uninstalled the updates for Android System Web view but with no success.
    I remembered that I had played with a number of system and security settings.
    – Go to Application Manager
    – Tap the three dots at the right hand corner of the screen
    – Tap Modify System Settings
    – Locate Contacts
    – Verify that the setting for Contacts is set to On
    – Launch Contacts application

  9. I fixed the problem after installed freedom 1.0.8c not 1.0.8b after installed it not get anymore crash, sorry for my bad English my hope us fix the problem with this way..

  10. This Worked for me!!!!! I’m using an HTC 10 S-Off with ViperRom. Everytime I tried to attach more than one attachment stored on my SD Card using K9 Mail, I’d get the message “unfortunately documents has stopped” and the K9 Mail app would shut down. Uninstalling updates worked for me. This was driving me nuts!! THANK YOU!!!
