Question TwLauncher not responding

I'm a newbie to Android phones and just got an AT&T Samsung Captivate last week. After installing

a new app, my launcher quit working. I'm not sure if the problem is related to the app I just

installed or an isolated problem with the launcher. I'm getting a dialog box that says, "Sorry!

Application TwLauncher (process com.sec.android.app.twlauncher (in process

com.android.app.twlauncher) is not responding.

Force close / Wait"

Can anyone please help?

I'm not sure which clock you're referring to. I only used the clock that came with the phone. We bought two phones at the same time, one for me and one for my wife. My wife uses the clock that comes pre-loaded on the phone and one other and has not experienced any problems. Can you be a bit more specific as to which clock you're referring to.

I took the phone back to the AT&T shop after I posted the message. They were kind enough to replace the phone with a brand new one. They put my original simm chip into the new phone. When I got home I tried working with the phone and experienced the same problem. Thus it's apparently not a problem with the phone itself, but a problem with corrupt software. I'll return to the AT&T store tomorrow and have them put in the new chip. That should solve the problem hopefully.

the clock calendar widget is the big round clock that highlights your calendar appointments in the clock face. I have had no problems since removing that as a widget.

I think the Samung calendar/clock widget may be the culprit as well. I had this same problem when I enabled it, it's going bye bye.

So how do you get to those apps if it won't let you... after you hit "force close" it takes you back to main screen but when I attempt to go go apps I get the same message.... please help can't use anything.

Smile Got Solution.

Friends I got the Solution. I was also using Galaxy mini and when I downloaded Dolphin HD Browser the problem came as yours..... I tried Searching it on Internet and just got a solution.
Follow the Below steps:

1. Try to back up contacts or anything else which is very much important.
2. Now turn off your phone.
3. After the phone is turned off, HOLD Menu Key+Power Key for some time until recovery screen appears.
4. Now using volume keys, Select wipe data/factory reset and press menu key for OK. [TOUCH SCREEN WILL NOT WORK IN RECOVERY MODE. USE VOLUME KEYS.]
5. Now reboot your device. It will Start and will Show the screen like when you take your NEW phone from store.
6. Don't enter E-mail ID you were using before instead create a new one on your PC. AND THAN enter new e-mail id....[IF YOU WILL ENTER THE PREVIOUS E-MAIL ID THAN THE PROBLEM MIGHT COME AGAIN.]

If any Question e-mail me at altaf.neva114@gmail.com

What version of Firmware will doing this reset to? Will it be the latest I flashed to my phone via Kies or the original build version? or another version?

thanks Ian
