Default twlauncher problem!!

Hello,

I've got the Samsung Galaxy Ace (GT-S5830). I installed some apps from the market, and received this error:

SORRY
The application TwLauncher (process com.sec.android.app.twlauncher) has stopped unexpectedly.

Wheb i boot my phone, he keeps sending this same errormessage on my screen. I cannot type or move around the menu or settings - Nothing!

I saw that more people had this error on another forums, but never saw a working solution for me. I already tried to reset my phone, didn't work!

What should i do?

Default Same situation here T_T

just got my Samsung galaxy ace a week ago and bam! god knows what happens and my phone is screwed in the same situation as yours. i recommend that you bring it down to your local samsung service center and have them reboot your phone or exchange for a new model. seriously, i think they have a bug going in the software that explains why we are in this shit.

I also encountered this error after plugging out from usb cable while kies is using it. I hard reset it and all OK after that. =|
It happened after a week I've bought it too.

Default solution

Hi I had the same problem here. I had installed file expert from android market and I used it to create a shortcut icon on my desktop for enabling ftp server. Unfortunately I had only one desktop available and it was already filled with icons without any free space. It caused touchwiz to crash and it was no longer able to start properly even after rebooting the phone.

I managed to fix it by connecting the phone to the pc via usb cable and manually removing the new shortcut from phone's desktop by editing touchwiz config file.

Exact procedure (use it on your own risk):
- connect phone to the pc
- start SuperOneClick and select Shell Root (not sure if it is necessary)
- run adb-file-explorer - ADB File Explorer for Android Devices - Google Project Hosting (I copied it into SuperOneClick/adb folder, not sure if necessary) and connect it to to the phone file system
- copy file /data/data/com.sec.android.app.twlauncher/databases/launcher.db from phone to your pc
- open it with SQLite Database Browser | Download SQLite Database Browser software for free at SourceForge.net
- go to browse data and select favorites table. delete the last row of the table (in my case it had title "sdcard")
- save the file and copy it back to the phone, replacing the old file
- restart the phone

good luck

I have the Samsung Galaxy S phone from US Cellular (Mesmerize) and I have the same error. However, I didn't get the error message until I upgraded to 2.2.1 so I think it is something in the OS upgrade.

Default Solved without hard reset

No need to reset. Only one condition is to have your phone connected and signed in to Google account.
Clean up your Home app data is all you need. You will loose your icons on your Home screen, nothing more.
Step by step:
Use your Google account and login to Android Market web.
Find and install your second Home app by pushing it into your phone from the web. I personally preffer GO Launcher EX.
If installation succeed, lock and unlock or restart your phone. Then you should see the dialog of switcher of default Home app.
Do not set any app as default, you will make it later! Choose your second Home app, and woala, your phone is working again.
Go into the Settings menu and follow: Applications - Manage applications - All and find your primary Home app, wich is Samsung Home in my case.
Tap on this app to get info about it and force it to stop. Finaly clean up the cache and the data.
Now you can use the Home Switcher or the Home Manager app to manage your default Home app.

I saw an answer to this problem on another thread and it worked for me. Removing the "Accuweather Clock" widget from any screen on your phone will stop the error.

Hi, I see that this has worked for several people, but sadly not for me. I have logged into my Googlemail account & Android Market via my pc etc & downloaded an alternative launcher. However, how do I get this download onto my Ace?? It shows on my list of apps, but I can't figure out how to load it onto my Ace from my pc. What am I missing? Thank u. GrahamF. London

It's easy, you must go to Android Market in your computer's web browser, sign in to your google account and click on installation of alternative launcher to your mobile. When you connect your phone to internet then, launcher will start installing and you will be able to run it after it.
Another option is to download launcher.apk to your computer and send it via. BT to your phone (but this requires activated 3rd party applications install and you can't reach that option in setup now)... But if you are lucky, you can run the installation right after the file is sent to your mobile and hope it will work.

My launcher broke-up yesterday, today I tried to upgrade firmware, but when it didn't work, i found this and tried. It worked, you just must delete your application data from the launcher app in setup

Good-luck, I hope this one will help...

Thumbs up Launcher problem

The way I fixed mine was to uninstall all the 3rd party apps that I installed after I rooted my Samsung Galaxy S 4G, except the Titanium Backup and superuser. Then I logon to Google Market and downloaded to my device GO Launcher EX, restarted my device and selected GO Launcher EX. That works! This happened last night and so far I don't have any problems with my device.

It worked to get me to be able to get to my already apps. fortunately i knew exactly the settings i messed up but had no way of getting to the app that sets them. your second home screen work like a charm!! Thanks!

I set my LCD density wrong and after reboot to have the settings take effect TWlauncher stopped working.

What should i do?
Login to Android Market from your laptop and install a new launcher. Turn on your phone and you will see it downloading. Install it and click on it and you will be asked to choose a launcher. You can choose the one you were using previously (I had GO and dlded ADW for the sake of dlding one) or the new one and you're set!

Solution of (process com.sec.android.app.twlauncher):
Just turn on your mobile and follow below steps:
- Select the SMS option, goto new message & send "www dot market dot android dot com" to any one.
- Open that sms & click on the same link.
- Follow the URL
- You will see this message: Data connectivity problem --- The server failed to communicate. Try again latter. Press OK button
- Then manually search in Google for Go Launcher Ex & press ENTER
- Press on GO Launcher EX - Apps on Android Market & install Go Launcher Ex
- Open Go Launcher Ex & u will see your Samsung Phone desktop with a new look.
- If u see a pop-up message & after pressing OK it will take you the twlauncher menu reset. First clear the data & then close it.
- You will loss shortcuts only & you have to make shortcuts again.
- Enjoy Both Launchers apps.

Hope it will help all & it is proved. Need ur feedback & also visit me on youtube & face book.

I have a samsung galaxy ace s5830 which, after downloading the Android "WhatsApp" has stopped working and comes up with the message
"Sorry The application Samsung Home (process com.sec.android.app.twlauncher) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
"Force close"
I have 'forced close' many times. Switched the phone off and back on many times and taken the battery out and put it back in a few times - i am at the end of my tether, bringing it back to the retailer isn't an option, for a couple reasons, pleas, anybody help me, im lost without my phone.

Use your Google account and login to Android Market web.
Find and install your second Home app by pushing it into your phone from the web. I personally preffer GO Launcher EX.
If installation succeed, lock and unlock or restart your phone. Then you should see the dialog of switcher of default Home app.
Do not set any app as default, you will make it later! Choose your second Home app, and woala, your phone is working again.
Go into the Settings menu and follow: Applications - Manage applications - All and find your primary Home app, wich is Samsung Home in my case.
Tap on this app to get info about it and force it to stop. Finaly clean up the cache and the data.
Now you can use the Home Switcher or the Home Manager app to manage your default Home app.
Hi mn331,
Can you please tell how to identify the home name of the home screen,
how did you identified that yous is Samsung Home?

Please help me out in this

Another option is to download launcher.apk to your computer and send it via. BT to your phone (but this requires activated 3rd party applications install and you can't reach that option in setup now)... But if you are lucky, you can run the installation right after the file is sent to your mobile and hope it will work.

My launcher broke-up yesterday, today I tried to upgrade firmware, but when it didn't work, i found this and tried. It worked, you just must delete your application data from the launcher app in setup

Good-luck, I hope this one will help...
I also experienced this problem but
i downloaded the Go Ex Launcher which is now working but the Samsung Homepage is still there can you please tell me how to get rid of it,i also tried to check in the Manage applications but i couldnt find the Samsung Homepage

Can you see the dial screen? If yes
Dial from the dial screen: *2767*3855#
You'll need to confirm the deletion of your data. All the contacts and messages will be deleted.
The phone will restarts and the problem shall be solved.

I have a gt-s5830i and I started getting the error (process com.google.android.partnersetup) and (process com.google.android.twlauncher) has stopped unexpectedly. I followed the steps you posted and it did not work(it just shows the same error when I turned on my phone). I already did factory reset and its still doing the same thing. I am getting desperate here. Hope you can reply back and give me other options on how to resolve this issue.

Well a phone can usually work without google apps(gapps), since your gapps have stopped working along with your launcher, you must be getting a blank screen when you turn on the phone with only the status bar on top.
Go to the play store via a computer and install a different launcher, there are several options available, that should atleast get you a working phone.
As for the gapps, i'm afraid i don't know how to solve that without root.

Although there are a few things you can try:
1. Try restarting the phone, the apps might just restart itself.
2. Try undoing the last thing you did before the gapps stopped working.
3. Try wiping some cache through an app or via recovery menu.
4. Try a factory reset, since you are not rooted there is a good chances that it will solve the problem. Backup all your data if you can because the reset will erase everything except for the sd card.
