I'm getting the error "android.process.acore has stopped" constantly, which makes my phone impossible to use. I have cm-10.2.0 on a galaxy S3. I have already tried factory reset and re-flashing the ROM several times. Any more ideas or is my phone now a brick?

  • If it were a brick, you could not flash it. Are you sure the ROM you've flashed was intended for your S3? Maybe you try a different ROM (of course one for the S3)? – Izzy Dec 16 '14 at 0:20
  • "brick" metaphorically. I cannot use the phone for anything. I'm pretty sure it was the right ROM, I copied it twice with adb push and flashed it twice. – tmkadamcz Dec 16 '14 at 9:41
  • Maybe your download was broken. I'd try with a different one. Besides: though you've mentioned factory-reset (which should have done that), have you wiped /data and /cache prior to flashing? Also worth a try. – Izzy Dec 16 '14 at 9:48

    yeah i've wiped everything I could. I'll try with a new file and let you know how it goes. – tmkadamcz Dec 16 '14 at 12:59
  • Tried downloading a new image of CM10, which I am able to flash but it does not solve the problem. I also tried to flash CM11, which fails with error "status 7". – tmkadamcz Dec 16 '14 at 13:46

Is it possible that google restores faulty contacts each time you did a factory reset? deactivate google sync for contacts and delete data for contacts and contact storage. This will delete all your contacts so make a backup!

(sorry I meant to write this in the comments section... now I don't know how to delete this.)
