UID's inconsistent Error (I'm feeling Lucky)
My Dad bought a shiny new 2013 Nexus 7.
After only one week, he started getting the "UID's inconsistent " error message with the "I'm feeling lucky button" at startup. True to the message's warning, his system became unstable and unusable.
He's done a factory reset which seems to be working. This is of course a massive pain in the ***!
Does anyone know what actually causes this problem? Anyone else with this?

Re: UID's inconsistent Error (I'm feeling Lucky)
That sounds to me like a malicious app has been installed on the device. You really have to read the permissions carefully before installing an app that you do not know. Sometimes a malicious app will be disguised as a legitimate app. Read the permissions, it will save you a lot of headaches. That free mp3 app does not need to see your contacts
As far as fixing it, a factory reset will most definitely take care of it. That would be my suggestion but you could go through the apps and try to find the malicious app yourself. To be on the safe side, a factory reset would erase any trace of the offending app which would be the safer option.
