    I ran into this over the weekend on my Nexus 7 and the only recovery that worked was to do a factory reset. That wouldn't even work from the settings menu - I had to boot into recovery mode and force it through that. What a pain having to completely rebuild.

    I did a search on this issue and was unable to determine whether it was due to malware or some accidental corruption of the system. The popup I got on my Nexus was:

    "System UIDs Inconsistent UIDs on the system are inconsistent, you need to wipe your data partition or your device will be unstable" followed with an option to click a button saying "I'm feeling lucky".

    It was this button aspect that led me to believe it was malware but I have no proof.

    I think you will find as I did that there is no fix other than a factory reset --

    1. Turn off the device if it is turned on, and connect it via USB cable to your computer
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up, Volume Down, and the Power Button at the same time for about three to four seconds to turn the device on, if done correctly you’ll see an Android lying on its back.
    3. Use the volume buttons to navigate to the Recovery Mode option, and press the Power Button to confirm your choice
    4. The device will restart, and after a few minutes the device should boot to a screen showing an Android with a red triangle, press and hold the Power Button and Volume Up on this screen for about two seconds and let go to make the menu options appear
    5. Use the volume buttons to navigate to Wipe Data / Factory Reset and press the Power Button to confirm your choice
    6. Use the volume buttons to navigate to Yes and press the Power Button to confirm your choice

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Ring on Virgin Mobile and I got the same "System UIDs Inconsistent" message. Do I do the factory reset from the settings menu? After doing the reset will I have a problem reactivating my phone with my carrier?

    I found another solution.

    have a look@ /data/system/uiderrors.txt
    there you will find the apps, that are responsible for the trouble, delete them (manualy if necessary) and you are fine, reinstalling the apps brings the error back though.

    That worked like a top untill I got to last menu.
    When I was trying to use the volume down button, which does not work on my phone.
    I haven't figured out how to hilite Wipe Data / Factory Reset.

    Anyother ways to do this?

    there is a note at the bottom that reads "I'm Feeling Lucky." If you hit that I'm feeling lucky section, it will allow you to access your phone. I would then copy all of the notes and files that you need before thinking about wiping the phone.
