- I receive a force close from
com.motorola.contactswhen I try to edit my contacts
- I can view my contacts
- The issue started immediately after I tried removing the thousand pound bundle of bloatware that Verizon pushed to my phone.
Avenues of Approach
Repairing the Stock Contact Storage
What apps does com.motorola.contacts depend on?
(Bonus question: How would I find that on my own; other than trial-in-error)
I have read that this app relies on some of the blur.yahoo bloatware. I tried keeping those enabled, but I may have missed a vital one and if I did, it is no longer on my phone so I'll have to hunt for it. Ideally, I won't have to re-enable this junk, which brings me to
Replace Contact Storage With Third-Party App
I have been searching for contact app replacements and so far they seem to run on top of the stock contacts app (as in they will also allow me to view, but app.motorola.contacts crashes when I try to edit). Example apps: Contapps, Go Contacts, as well as a few others.
Is it even possible to replace this system app?
Use Alternate Version of the Stock Contact AppI don't mean to ask you guys to do my experimenting for me, but could I take the contact storage app from a different system that doesn't require Junk.Yahoo: Such as an older version of Android or one that doesn't come from Verizon?
