Need help - phone is freaking out...reset didn't fix it!
For the past 30 minutes or so my Droid has been in a really bad state.
The basic symptom is that the majority of apps won't launch. The few that do launch but when I exit them (back key) I go to a blank screen for anywhere up to 30s, and then the home screen finally appears. What works is kind of random...email works, Gmail doesn't, shop savvy works, appmanger doesn't...marketplace works.
Did a factory reset, that didn't help. Same problem appeared again after I set up my phone again.
No other new apps (removed the new Gallery app, WaveSecure beta, and the Weather Channel - all were added in the last day or so).
Never seen anything like this.
It started this evening after I loaded a new Gallery app that was supposed to provide pinch zoom...after installing it the app wouldn't run, other apps wouldn't run and I ended up doing the reset.
No idea if this is some coincidence or if the new Gallery app was the issue, but since I've done a reset after uninstalling it and it hasn't been re-installed, seems hard to believe it would still be an issue.
My next step will be to turn off the "back up my settings" option and do another reset, but I'd prefer not to if I can avoid it...
Appreciate any troubleshooting ideas.
