  1. First method is pretty invalid if you can’t access the browser. soon as you select it, it shuts down the browser and shows the error message

  2. I tried every method and nothing worked. I even opened the Android management screen and did hard reset and wiped the cache clean from there. Still the same. It’s not just the browser crashing on my tablet it’s every single application you open. EVERYTHING crashes no matter what it is. The Play Store crashes, the keyboard crashes, any game, everything. As soon as you try to open anything BAM it goes down and the error message comes up “Unfortunately “blah blah” has stopped”. Very frustrating.

    • Oh by the way, there’s no way I can try a different browser because nothing stays open long enough to download one. But I doubt if that would help anyway when everything is crashing, not just the browser.
