    Hi guys,

    My phone has been working great until today. for some reason now when I install a new app, if it is forced close or if I reboot the phone, I lose all the setting for the apps. It only happens to new apps, the one installed before today are (so far) keeping the settings.

    Has this ever happened to anyone? Please help. I know some of you might suggest a factory reset, but unless somebody had this problem and reset helped with it, I will hold off on that because if it ends up not working I will be left with all my apps losing their settings all the time.

    I am on I9000T on stock Froyo 2.2.1 if that can help.

    A factory reset would fix this for you, this is a problem with one of the updates of the Galaxy S
    but before doing that , try this app
    https://market.android.com/details?id=eu.thedarken.sdm

    uninstall the apps that are losing their settings , then clean all corpses and duplicates
    if this didn't work for you then you'll need to factory reset

    Thanks for the reply! Can you tell me what update you are talking about that might be causing the problem? I have not updated anything other than google apps (google maps and search) in months.

    I will look at the link you provided. Thanks again.
