    Default after rooting, radio won't turn on, getting msg "unfortunately settings has stopped"

    G5 running 4.4.2, build date March 2014 so towelroot requirement was good (build has to be prior to 4 June)

    Rooted a few days ago, used Ti Backup to backup some bloatware, delete it and froze the OTA SDM app. Did all this to get rid of the stupid OTA update.

    After 3 days, started to get "com.android.phone has stopped" but nothing bad was noticed, just acknowledged the msg when it came up. THEN this morning the radio would not turn on. Going to Settings>more networks>mobile networks to turn the radio back on produces "unfortunately settings has stopped working". Removed battery, rebooted, no joy. Still does it in safe mode too. Going to uninstall some recently installed apps & try again.

    Thinking of doing a factory reset next but if anyone has a fix, chime in! Thanks.

    No joy this time around. The factory reset gave the same errors and behavior, no cell network connectivity. Zero bars, not able to activate it.

    Called VZ and they will send another phone under warranty.

    If I'd noticed your first post I'd have suggested wiping the Cache Partition and trying a different SIM. A bit redundant now, and probably useless anyway. 😕
