    I started experiencing FCs today and wondered what app I froze, using Titanium Backup Pro, that was causing the issue. At the bottom of the list was the two Yahoo! apps. I unfroze them and BAM!!! All better! :)

    Do NOT freeze Yahoo! Mail Authenticator. You will start getting 'Contact Storage' Force Closes. :eek:

    FWIW, I do have 'Yahoo Contacts' frozen though, and no issues.

    Thanks for this. Someone should sticky this so people don't make the same mistake, and you should upload those files you posted in another thread, so that if they break something, they can fix it.

    Maybe I'll make a bat/sh file.... maybe if I have time, unless you do it first.

    Hmm, now that you mention it, a full system dump of all the /system apps would be nice... a full dump of the phone would be nicer... a full SBF would be nicest....

    Speaking of which, I have some downloads available - latest RSDLite that I've found, Motorola Drivers, radios, etc....

    Hell, I'll just put them in my signature. I need to make a webpage of sorts that just has the links I want to provide, eh?

    Thanks guys. I'm assuming I just drop the extracted files into the system/apps folder is that correct?

    EDIT: Which is what I did with no luck :)

    Can't quite figure how to get these files on the device using Titanium Backup. :(

    I believe you need to copy those 3 files into the folder where your Titanium Backup files reside. Then open TiBu and do a restore.

    Thanks for the reminder. This is the first forum I've seen a "Thanks" button and I REALLY like the idea.

    I have none of the Yahoo apps frozen but I am still getting FC on Contacts Storage. I've found that putting it in Airplane and Uninstalling the Updates on Contacts Storage, then Restore the AppData using TB works. After that, i take it back off Airplane and let it resync.

    However, that fix only works for a day or two then the FC's start all over again. I've noticed that I only get FC's when choosing certain contacts. When I use my temporary fix, the contacts that cause the FC are not the same as the last time. I'm baffled.

    What apps do you have frozen? Any at all?

    Also, why are you using TiBu to resync your contacts. Why not just let Google push those back to your phone? (Assuming that you are syncing your data to Google.)

    Updates on contacts storage? Anyone else seeing an update on contacts storage?

    I am getting this problem, although the temporary fix is not an option to me, Contacts Storage has no updates to remove.

    I think it may be related to Facebook- The contacts that crash are the ones that should be synced with FB. When I go into Settings/Accounts there is no Facebook account listed, but if I try to add one it says only one may be linked at a time. Where is it hidden?

    Problem persists after unfreezing *everything* - but I had uninstalled a few things (that I thought I restored) before I switched to freezing...
    I wish I could just flash the stock ROM over top my existing system to restore anything that has gone missing without clearing all my customization...

    Hi, I had this same problem but in my case it was because I had used Titanium Backup to freeze a system app called "My Accounts" once I defrosted that the FC stopped.
