at shell type:
rm -r /data/data/com.android.providers.settings
You'll loose some settings, ringtones, notifications, screen brightness, but these are easily reset.
If when you sync you get a ! you may also have to, or like to, clear the data under settings>apps> for gmail, gmailstorage, contacts,contactstorage, calender, calendarstorage - DO A SYNC FIRST AND CHECK IN YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT ON A PC AS YOU'LL LOOSE ANYTHING NOT SYNC'D
But why do so many devices suddenly bork requiring this????? Does anyone know?
I've been having this problem for a long time,llike 1 and a half month and you saved me! by the way the phone is xperia x8
