    Hi All,

    Suddenly app of my from Google stopped working, Maps, Gmail, process.android.acore., Google Talk, Wallet, and most apps that are not form Google that I downloaded from the Play Store have stopped working as well. The last thing I did on my phone was take some pictures and videos something I do often. I've had my phone with no issues from about 3-4 months now and suddenly it stopped working. Any ideas of what to do would be great.

    Thanks

    You can download google apps add on and install via recovery mode on your phone. Gapps or something it's called I cannot remember, I've got the download link on my laptop. Reply to this post if this makes no sense to you

    Do you mean flash Gapps using CWM? I'd appreciate the link if you have it available :)

    I am now realizing that its not just Google Apps its also just about every other app on my device. Weirdly, the Play Store still works yet nothing else does.

    Afraid not, apart from maybe a factory reset through recovery

    Thanks for the advice. Do you know why something like this would happen after everything was working fine?

    Honestly no idea, sorry. Usually that gapps isnt installed, obviously not the case here. Hopefully the factory reset will work

    Thanks for the reply. Do you know if the Factory Reset will erase my pictures/videos? Should I back them up first?

    Definitely back up first, but they wont be deleted, only contacts, text messages, and apps will be deleted. You can back these up to your play store account then soon as reset is done log into your play account and all contacts apps etc will be restored

    I fixed my phone! I did it by installing a Jelly Bean ROM on XDA. All it needed was a good old AOSP ROM :) Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

    Yeah :) I wonder what happened for it to force close even after a factory reset. Weird.
