Recently, I faced “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped” Error while using the phone. I got this message every few second while using the phone. It was so damn irritating because I could not even use my phone properly. Further I got to know that “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped” Error is a common error among Android users and the reason behind error may differ from phone to phone. Some of the users have reported that the error is caused due to third-party app, some said problem in custom ROM while many users said due to update of Google app.
The solution that worked for me was Uninstalling Google App Updates. The solution may not be same for all the users so try some other solutions which I have mentioned below.
Sometime just by re-starting your device can solve the issue. So, why not try this once. To re-start your device:
There are lots of users who have fix their issue by uninstalling the Google app updates. It is said that the error is caused after updating Google App. Try this method to get rid of the error.
Note: You better choose “Do not auto-update app”. So that Google apps won’t be updated automatically and creates the same issue. To choose the option, Go to Google Play Store >> Click on three horizontal line >> Click on Settings >> Choose the options “Do not auto-update app”.
Most of the users have fixed “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped” Error simply by scanning their device with CM Security App. This method has got very good review from the users and I hope you will also be able to fix the issue using this method.
You should be able to fix the error by now. But, if you are still facing the error then try to follow given methods.
This method will let you know whether the third-party application is causing the error or not. In the safe mode, all third-party apps are disabled so we can detect the problem is with third-party app or other.
As soon as the device opens in Safe Mode, check whether the error is solved or not. If there is no error then third-party app may be causing error. So, try uninstalling the recently downloaded app and see whether the error is fixed or not.
This has also worked for many of the users. We just need to wipe the cache partition and we can see that the error is fixed. Just follow the step as shown below and you can fix the error.
Phones and their keys/buttons to go in Recovery mode
Now your device has wiped the cache and you can use the device like previously without error. This process may erase the save data of the app like the save game, high score etc.
If you are still facing the error then you can try the last solution, Factory Reset. It will fix your error.
How to Factory Reset your Android Device
If you are using custom ROM like Cyanogenmod, SlimROM etc and facing some errors whether it is “Unfortunately, settings has stopped” Error or any other than you should know either it is because of compatibility issue or the ROM has not been installed properly. So, it is better you reflash the operating system along with compatible GAPPs (Google Applications) package. If you are still getting the error, try flashing different ROM.
So, these are some of the methods to fix “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped” Error in Android. Hopefully, you have solved the error and won’t face the error in future again. Let us know which method worked for you.
