    Hi all, my touchwiz home has stopped working after the recent update (launched in June)!!

    Moreover, when reboot the devise, it won't start unless tried multiple times; it took me three hours to get it started...

    I've cleared data and catche and currently using the simple touch mode!!

    I hope this problem is resolved soon in the next update by Samsung..

    regards,

    Does the message say "Touch Wiz..." even when using Nova launcher?

    Maybe some weird setting is causing it to crash. Was there a widget you uninstalled, or some icon that was an image that no longer exists, etc?

    Try going to Settings->Applications, find TouchWiz (under Running, or All), and select Clear Data. It will erase all configs of Touch Wiz but may solve it.

    Didn't work? I'd considering restoring factory settings. But before you do, install Helium (a.k.a. Carbon - old name) and do a full backup of your device on to your laptop. No root required.

    I had the same problem with my GS III. I did the live chat with Samsung and the problems was fixed.
    Here is what they had me do.
    Go to: Settings/Application manager/All
    Once there tap the menu button and hit "Reset app preferences"
    A new box will pop up - hit "Reset apps"
    After I did this, no more "Unfortunately....stopped" message!
    Additionally, it kept all the settings just like I had them before, no need to refigure everything like you do when clearing the cache!
    Hope this helps someone

    Doing this will unfreeze everything you may have froze with Titanium

    Thank you for your help. It worked, but if I may add, I force stopped the TouchWiz Home and the problem was over. Hope it works for all those who have the same problem.

    Default Re: unfortunately touchwiz home has stopped (S4)

    Samsung update tonight on my S3 gave me this wonderful issue (Thanks Samsung! )
    - Reset app preferences: didn't work
    - Clear Data for Touchwiz Home (via Applications Manager): worked until I put the 4x4 Calendar widget back into one of my pages; issue returned.
    - Switch to Easy Mode: as per Clear Data above.

    Now even if I try to switch back to Basic Mode, phone still borked (I assume because both modes now have 4x4 calendar widget).

    So, looks like Clear Data again for me and no more 4x4 Calendar widget. Peeved as I use it for work almost every day.

    Oh, and once again ... Thanks Samsung!

    I'm definitely not a techy person, but I seem to have fixed the issue by downloading a new launch app for s5 from play store. I wasn't able to navigate any app on my home screen without "unfortunately Touch Wiz home has stopped working" popping up then I'd go to a black screen. Had tried other suggestions without going to the extreme of a factory reset! So far seems to have fixed with any problems! I lost a little bit of fluidity but No New Phone. I have an s4. Hope this helps someone!

    I'm having this issue and I tried clearing the cache, going to easy mode, soft reset, reset app preferences now not only do I have the touch wiz issue the home screen wont come out of easy mode!! So I'm worse off than where I started and after resetting it went back to the apps on the home screen that it came with.
    Grrrr, anyone got any ideas?

    Hi there.
    I am tech savvy and tried every possible fix posted about this problem and nothing even improved the error from returning.
    The only fix I didn't try was rooting the tablet.
    I have a Samsung Tab2 running android 4.1.2
    I factory reset the tablet and the problem has disappeared.
    You will have to set up your Samsung account(s) again and reinstall your apps etc.
    Sorry for the bad news.
    I have not had this issue with either my S4, Tab 10.1 (android 4.4.2) or the new S6 edge (android 5.2).

    I have been experiencing the same problem with the S3, Note 2, Note 3, and now the Note 4! To answer your question, no...it saying whatever launcher you are using has stopped, not Touchwiz. It happens every time after I have installed several apps, then re-boot the phone. Touchwiz will work fine up to that point. It always happens to me after I have installed several apps, then re-boot the phone. I have tried a process of elimination with the apps, but still have not been able to isolate any particular apps that causes it. I think that it is a random issue. I have also noticed that S-Finder stops working as well, every time, right before Touchwiz stops working, and only at re-boot. Swiching launchers does not fix the problem. The launcher simply stops working as well, once Touchwiz bites the dust!

    I have the same issue. The so called fix above does nothing for my S4. In fact, now I have icons disappearing on my pages and I can't do anything about it.

    This only happens to me when I restart my phone cause it is slowing down. After restart, Touchwiz home has stopped. Only time I get it and don't know what to do.

    [SOLVED- SAMSUNG GALAXY S4] Many people have been experiencing a major touchwiz home flaw on the s4 and note 3 after the lollipop update, icons/widgets could not be moved and no new icons/widgets could not be placed.

    I have been searching for a fix for a long time now and i found this: just disable "motion" under motion and gestures in settings, no restart is required !

    Please tell me if this worked.
