    Hi... Thanks for your help.

    I did what you said:

    1. Went to Settings -> Application settings -> Manage applications
    2. Went to All tab

    But can't find "Samsung Home".

    :confused:

    samsung home a.k.a. twlauncher error/failed

    if possible to access setting, go to settings/application/manage app/"all" tab/scroll down until u found Samsung Home open it, first, force stop then clear cache and data but if u cannot access the setting and don't want to reset your phone to factory settings (it will delete all of your data) try to find wi-fi that your phone can access and a computer that have internet. Now, using computer go to android market and log in your acct. then find application called
    " go launcher ex " click on that app and install it (don't worry, its free app) then, with your malfunctioning phone but wi-fi connected, it will download the app and install itself. Now the tricky part, once installed a pop-up will ask you if you want to switch either go launcher or samsung home and below a check-box of the default you want to use, (REMEMBER THAT DO NOT CLICK ON THAT CHECKBOX) now, choose go launcher ex as your new home (JUST LEAVE THE BOX BELOW UNCHECKED) you can now operate your phone (but not fixed yet) you can now access the setting, just follow the procedure i mention above but don't exit on that page,
    now that we are almost done with the fix, scroll down you will see clear default button and hit that. Restart your phone then a pop-up will launch again now you can choose what fits for you "go launcher ex" or the classic "samsung home" but after you choose, check that checkbox for your default home if you choose samsung home, you can now uninstall go launcher ex.

    Here is my advise:
    Try to install application called Smart Task Switcher or Smart Taskbar and pin to your task bar, with that application slide down your tastbar and you can access the phone setting instatly even if twlaucher error happens again, and there is no need to find wi-fi hot-spot, install go laucher ex again, just go to setting and fix it and dont forget to reboot when you're done.

    :rolleyes:

    I have a samsung galaxy mini 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.

    SOLUTION

    Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All(tab) > Samsung Home (or as it is on My Galaxy S2, TWLauncher).
    Hit the 'Clear Data' button.
    That will force close the app.

    I did a reboot after this so everything would stick and for my own sanity check.

    That worked a treat for me.

    I just registered to say thank you to all of you and especially this message. It saved me big. Thank you!

    PS. If like me you couldn't turn off the phone without removing the battery. After you've started it up again, straight away press and hold the volume up, home and on keys. That puts you into the menu too

    Anyhow, big big thanks

    I worked like a charm for me got it up and running grate then one week later the same thing happened again I now have add LauncherPro to my GS2 so when it crashes it gives me the option to use LauncherPro to sort out the problem again. But does anyone know why this is happening? Apps conflict or what! Please let us know

    Thanks JayDevil, worked a charm for me on my galaxy Ace.

    It does wipe all your data of course, but as long as you have your contacts saved in the cloud (googlemail, etc, etc) all you have to do is sync your phone once its back up and running then start downloading the apps you would normally use.

    The positive side of this for me was that I only had to download a handful of apps which I use almost daily and not worry about all the dross I had on my phone previous to the twlauncher fault, and the phone appears to be working more quicker :)

    Well chuffed!

    i tried the whole

    1. Turn off the phone
    2. Press and hold Home Button ( middle ) + power on for at least 10 seconds
    3. Android System Recovery Mode Appear
    4. There are 4 options

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    5. Move the options to " Wipe data / factory reset " using volume down ( - ) button and menu button to confirm, because the touchscreen doesn't work in reovery mode (Use the home to choose Yes)
    6. After the process done, phone will reboot. (It if does not, Choose "reboot system now")
