I had run over the air update from Android 4.1 to 4.2 on my Samsung Grand GT-I9082. It seems to have completed fine (screen with robot and progress bar for a while, then some messages about "optimizing" and "running" applications, then boot).
After update the phone itself works fine, however a lot of third party apps now crash on launch with "Application [name] has been stopped" (loose translation since my phone interface is not in English). It is consistent and specific to the app - either it always crashes or it just works normally. The one slight exception is Chrome which opens and closes immediately, but doesn't give the message.
- Clearing cache for the app doesn't fix it
- Uninstalling app completely and re-installing does fix it (so far - for those few I did it for)
What else can I try?
At this point I guess reinstalling every crashing app would fix them, but that seems very boring and menial option, not to mention losing settings and data in those apps where it's relevant.
