    Hey ya'll whats up?

    This morning I had a system update waiting for my on my G1.... It took quite some time to download just like the last update (Cupcake).. now I am having problems loading my phone.

    I have the aHome application installed and I use that as my primary operating system (if you can call it that).

    Now when my phone restarted after the update downloaded, it keeps giving me errors such as:

    "The application aHome (process mobi.bbase.ahome) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

    The application Messaging (process mobi.bbase.ahome) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

    These errors repeatedly pop up and will not let any of my desktop load up or will it let me get into the system settings menu.

    What should I do?! I've spent too much time customizing my phone for this friggin' update to just come along and destroy it all... :mad:

    Well, I'm not an aHome user, but it's possible that aHome has not been updated for 1.6 yet. If that's the case, you're gonna have to use the regular home screen until they come out with an update that is compatible.

    That is my major problem. I cannot pull up the system settings menu on the home screen because the errors keep popping up...

    FACTORY RESET.
    ere's how it works:
    1. Power off the G1
    2. Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"
    3. Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W
    4. Restored!

    Yeah, unfortunately since you set aHome as your default home screen you won't be able to access anything else. A wipe is gonna erase everything on your phone including your apps.

    Well I wiped it...

    Now I'm back to the beginning... which is nice, because I was getting a little crowded with unused apps anyways.

    Also, in the market there is a "downloads" tab on the top right which has a history of every app I have downloaded, both free and paid for. So at least I can re-install everything that I actually used =)


    It's a shame though, I really liked aHome. I just read the comments in the market on it and apparently it is a major problem with the 1.6 update. They really need to fix this asap.

    I'm sure it will be fixed soon enough. 1.6 isn't even fully rolled out and the 1.6 SDK was only released a few weeks ago.

    Hopefully you had used aHome's export settings ... so that if something like this happens you can recover ... ??

    Yea it sucks, it's a known issue at work with alot of alternate home apps.. I use DxTop and it force closes 100% of the time. Although what I don't get is when you guys say you MUST reset, this is not true. On my MT3G, once it force closes it ask's if I want to use the factory home screen, I say yes, and I'm back, widgets and all... fyi

    FWIW, panda home (free in market) works with almost all themes and has been updated for 1.6. I installed it last night and no problems. I had issues before running a "home" app with a modded 1.6 and had to unistall the app.

    AHome is working with 1.6 again ... new version is in Market and your old settings will be preserved ...

    I know I am probably late with a reply to the issue but with any given program if it freezes up and crashes try uninstalling and then reinstalling it, that's helped me with lots of problems I've had after updating various apps.

    Welcome to Android Forums, karmaz.

    Sometimes when those type of error messages pop up it is because the data in the app has become corrupted. One course of action is to go into menu > settings > applications > manage applications > (the app) and clear cache AND data both.

    A reinstallation of the app is next. Then reboot the device.

    Try posting about this in the Vodaphone area:

    Vodafone 845 - Android Forums

    There is not a lot of activity there, but perhaps another user of that device will notice your post. ;)

    Good luck.
