I bought a Nokia 8 two days back, and updated it to Android Oreo 8.0.0. No more updates are available.

I have only installed some basic everyday apps such WhatsApp or Facebook.

I'm able to change wallpapers from the gallery. However, if I go to Settings > Display > Wallpaper, an error pops up, saying "Settings has stopped; open app again".

What can I do to correct this?

Clearing cache+data for the Settings app and restarting phone did not solve it. Rebooting into safe mode also did not help.

On repeated trials, I see a slightly different screen.

  • @beeshyams Ah, the dreaded factory reset. I'll see to it, if nothing else comes up. – NVZ Jan 21 '18 at 6:38
  • That edit reinforces factory reset recommendation – beeshyams Jan 21 '18 at 7:06

I finally went ahead with a full reset. It was solved, but caused some other issues on the side.

Trying out various approaches to reproduce the issue, I found that disabling the Google Wallpapers app can cause it. I do not know how it was disabled in the earlier case, or if at all that really was the cause.
