    The process acore problem has been around since 2009, it hasn't been traced to a specific brand, model or version of Android.

    But it does often seem to trace to the data cache used by applications becoming corrupted.

    Hard to find because instead of the buggy app crashing, it's crashing acore.

    Here's troubleshooting from T-Mobile for a Samsung to back up the idea -


    Do you have any apps that strike you wonky? Sound boards or live wallpaper not from HTC, maybe for example?

    I would hate for you to have go through adding apps one at a time to trace the problem, but I once did, and those examples are what hit me.

    You can also backup all of your apps (MyBackup Pro) and consider a factory data reset, that will clear out everything.

    I had the same problem with my galaxy s3..

    Try going to settings>applications>running>all and scroll to "contacts" open it and choose "clear data" - then go back to "contacts storage" and do the same thing.

    Your phone should now be working.

    Just stating what may be obvious to many: Do make good backups of your contacts or anything else you consider valuable before you clear the contacts or do a reset! :)

    You're gonna have to do a "restore" In recovery from your Nandroid backups,
    What I did was the wipes (Cache & dalvik), Then went to backup & restore, seledted "restore", Chose the latest backup & restored!!

    Aack! Followed instructions, and it cleaned out not only my phone, but everything on the SIM card as well! Was this the expected result? I thought it would clear out just the phone, but leave the SIM card alone

    A SIMPLE SOLUTION: This worked on an ATT i337 running 4.4.2. I remembered disabling some apps just before turning off my phone the night before. I started re-enabling and when I got to my Samsung calendar the error messages stopped (they would pop up every 2 secs, so I had to do all this FAST, in between error msgs).

    Go to SETTINGS - MORE - APPLICATION MANAGER - swipe left to TURNED OFF and try turning on each app, one by one. If any app is the cause of this error, the error will immediately cease, as it did for me. I wrongly assumed I could turn off the built-in Samsung calendar because I installed Google calendar (it is integrated with the OS on ATT phones).

    I don't know if you are aware of this but Android did something they thought was good in Jelly Bean but it turns out to be a huge problem. Applications CAN NOT write or change any file or anything on your external storage. They did this because of harmful programs that use to screw things up on your SD Card so they just made it so that no application can write to the SD Card, only read. I've never used Titanium Backup but like all they back up to the SD Card but now with the system change it can't backup. They are fixing this problem and doing permissions for apps to write on the card. The app permissions are just starting to change now whenever the app does an update. You may have seen some lately with new updates. For main problem sorry no clue I'm trying to fix mine too. For your backup being empty problem... That's what's going on and it will probably be fixed if it hasn't already with a Titanium update.
    Good luck

    The change you're describing hit in KitKat, not Jellybean.

    Apps can still write to external storage.

    No problem.

    They just can't write to external storage owned by another app.

    That's the security feature.

    None of which addresses acore crashing - the actual solution varying by Android model.

    The best solution for acore crashing is to nuke it from orbit - backup your phone with Helium Backup (Play Store) if you're not rooted, factory data reset, and restore your apps from the backup.

    If rooted, Titanium Backup, MyBackup Root and Helium Backup all work.

    Thank you!!!
    Worked for me on Verizon Note 3, Custom Android 4.4.4 rom. It made sense because I restored contacts from my Titanium backup and then it started happening. I thought that is where all my contacts were stored..

    What are the side effects of this? Seems sorta dangerous to globally reset all app preferences. Does one lose all app customization or what?

    That did not work on my Nexus 5 running 5.0.1. My phone is unusable and I don't want to reset my phone just yet.
