I have and its running really good but only problem still is the contact FC :/

Have you tried fixing permissions? Do you use titanium? ... Try a full clean install and don't load gapps and see if the problem is there I just tried my contacts apk and no issue...

I just made a clean install and I getting the same problem with contact fc. everytime I click on a contact name I get a FC.

I open the contacts apk but if I click on a specific contact it force closes. Noticed it one day when I tried Editting a contact.

Guys what gapps are you running ?

When I open a contact it showse number ... Photo.. If I edit it they work. Again need to know gapps ... Do you use a backup restore app . themed? More details the better
