Hi all. As of yesterday I have a problem which is stopping me from using my Streak. When I start up, I get the lock screen as normal, but when I unlock it I immediately (< 1s) get android.process.acore force closing on me. When I choose Quit, it refreshes the screen icons and widgets briefly then force closes again, etc. etc. I have taken the battery out and put back in with no difference. I'm running the official Froyo 2.2 update. Phone bought outright from Optus here in Australia.
I'm guessing a factory reset would do the job, but I see that as a last ditch solution. I have not backed up unfortunately.
I did update a few apps yesterday.
Also, my phone turned off overnight. I found that the back cover was loose and replaced it.
Thanks for any help.
Slight update. I have found a way to get some access to the device. I have Advanced Task Manager (ATM) running, and if I'm quick to pull down the notification bar I can tap on ATM and can get into its 'kill selected tasks' menu. I can also get to its uninstall menu. While I'm in that menu the force closes slow down a lot, but happen maybe once a minute. I have uninstalled quite a few apps that run in the background, but still get force closes. I can't access the home screen at all, e.g. to swipe to another home screen.
I did notice one thing. The main home screen seems to load fine, and the one to the left (which for me the the web bookmarks stage widget). On the 'right' I have the Contacts stage widget, which doesn't seem to get drawn at all (that is, widget background does but the contact icons don't come up). Could it be something to do with the contacts widget? I've never had a problem with contacts before. Is there any way I can remove widgets from my home screens without having access to the home screens, e.g. via an app? Thanks.
