    I Use my S2 as my main music player, especially when working out. Since downloading the firmware update, when listening to music, other songs have started launching at the same time. I use an app usually for listening & downloading my music, & it's the music player originally installed which randomly launches. I have tried using this player instead but when i do it will play 10 seconds of a song then shuffle to the next one.
    It's annoying when you are mid workout & 3 or 4 songs are all trying to play at once. I don't really want to delete my music app (MP3 Ringtone) & can't disable the built in music player, anyone got any ideas please. :thinking:

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Have you cleared the cache and data of the Music app from application manager.

    The old music app and new one after the update are very different but have the same name, hence old cache and data can cause such issues.

    Have you tried any third party app?

    Have now cleared the cache on the music player i have been using, will see if it stops the problem. The original Samsung music app had nothing in the cache.
    All apps have been updated so I know it shouldn't be an out-dated version problem. I've moved the MP3 Ringtone app to my SD card as well to see if that will make any difference.
    Thanks for the help.

    Didn't work unfortunately, have turned off the motion sensor as a last resort. If the phone was unlocked would i then be able to remove the installed music app?
