    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

    The perfect solution for all your problem is;
    Go to Settings >> Under Device click Home screen mode. >> Select Easy mode.>> Click Apply.
    then if you played around with the animation scale in developer option then you need to put animation scale back
    Go to settings >> Developer option >> in Drawing menu >> Window Animation Scale >> select 1x to any or change Transition animation scale or you need to change these setting and one will surely work for you then you can set back your old setting too.

    Hope this will work

    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!
