    Default Unwanted accented English

    Somehow, when in settings, language, my phone got the ACCENTED ENGLISH version and I want ENGLISH. When I go back into settings to switch back, message reads UNFORTUNATELY SETTINGS HAS STOPPED.

    Help

    Have you tried clearing the cache for the TTS app and the system cache?

    I also had this happen a week ago. You can't get to application manager with settings broken to try and clear cache. Clearing system cache from recovery menu did nothing. Trying to avoid a reset and not sure even that would fix it. Most everything on my Galaxy S4 Mini (4.4.2) works but...

    Edit: Forgot to add this happened when I accidentally chose Accented English for the System Language. Broke ever since.

    That's why everything should be backed up at all times. Then you do a factory reset, and if that doesn't work you reflash the ROM, and you restore the backed-up data. Kind of what you do when that truck runs over your phone and the driver offers to buy you a new one right away. (The only thing permanent is entropy - everything else needs a backup or 5.)

    Any luck finding a solution yet?

    I am having the same problem. I clicked on Accented English to see what it was and now I can't open my Settings at all.

    I found a solution. Launching Wi-Fi and other sub-settings menus directly worked for me. I went looking for a way to launch the Language & Input settings directly. Here is a method I discovered:

    1. Launch Tasker
    2. Add Task
    3. Add Action -> App -> Launch App -> Hold down on Settings -> Select Settings$InputMethodAndLanguageSettingsActivity ("Language & input")
    4. Click the play button
    5. Change language back to English
