    Default Crashing Most of the Apps after 4.4.3 update

    this is a total disaster for me. Is there any other way to go back to 4.4.2?
    Android is so bad in backing up every time there's system update.
    Please help guys.

    Have you cleared your system cache partition? https://motorola-global-portal.custh...he/action/auth

    Thank you for the help P.Diddy. I tried but message app still crashes. I use hangouts all the time. I tried using other 3rd party sms apps but still it crashes.
    This procedure will certainly help in my future problems with android.

    anything more you can suggest to repair sms app? Thanks for your time.

    Make sure you have the latest version, which is 2.1.224. If you don't have it yet, wait for it to become available for your device. Google apps get updated on a rolling basis, so not everyone gets them at the same time.

    I'm running Google Hangouts 2.1.224 and I'm having this exact same problem. Whenever I enter in a conversation, and start typing, Google Hangouts with freeze momentarily, and then crash asking me to send a crash report. I have done this already...

    Hmm, I wonder how widespread the problem is? Hopefully we'll know soon. Maybe there'll be a quick bugfix update for Hangouts.

    exactly exactly exactly. If you try to install 3rd party sms apps it will crash as well.
    This is not just in hangouts. It's with 4.4.3 (maybe for moto x only).

    I can no longer send sms. It's either I have to buy or use a new phone for a while. This is killing me.

    What in reading is the problem is for people who froze the stock sms app with titanium or similar app. Unfreeze the stock sms app, clear the app defaults, and reboot.

    Even if you didn't freeze the stock sms app try changing the default back to stock in settings/wireless&networks/more/default sms app, then change it back.

    I had this same issue and the only fix i had was to go into the apps and hit the button in the top right corner( 3 dots) and select "reset app preferences".

    waze crashing.
    Nova launch freezing but not so frequent.
    sms is useless. A disaster. A catastrophe!

    Is there any way to back up android like in iTunes for iPhone?
    I need to restore to factory settings. My Motor X is almost useless now so so sad.

    How many of you with crashes are rooted? I'm full stock uprooted ever and it was a perfect update for me.

    hangouts was updated yesterday, do people still have issues with new update?

    also, is this problem happening only with rooted phones?

    I'm not rooted and having the same problem. And now I cannot even enable the messaging app. I disabled it because I do all messaging through the hangout

    I have had the inverse with the update. I was having issues with Iphone imessages not showing up in my default texting app. After the update yesterday, they are coming in again without the issues you guys are mentioning. I'm not rooted, use stock moto x sms and nova launcher. My battery is also better with 4.3 too Weird.

    You disabled "Messaging" before the upgrade and can't re-enable it. "Enable" is grayed out in the Settings->Apps menu.

    Solution
    ---------
    In the Settings->apps menu - the 3 dots menu has a "Reset App Preferences" option. It re-enables ALL disabled apps. This will fix sending SMS/MMS. You can't have it disabled in 4.4.3 safely.

    Next time I have to be careful with updates. Wait at least a week or so before diving in. Or have two phones either different platforms or not.

    Thanks a lot.

    Nope. It's happening with my moto g's too. I first discovered it on my x then checked the g and it's the same for both. SMS absolutely does not work. Only messaging that isn't SMS ie. Hangouts for G+ users and apps like WhatsApp work just fine. Must have something to do with sim or something. It's not a Hangouts or Google issue.

    Yesterday my phone updated; now when I turn it on I have all these stupid screens that I have no interest in; including one for games, which I never play. Before the update, when I touched to display it; it went directly to 1st page of apps, where I have the phone; people; facebook messenger, and everything I use.

    Now I have a screen that opens up to some news from the US, then it goes to something to do with a racing game and music; then to battle nations; then to "You Social Network Screen"; none of which I want; nor did I put it there. Then it's screen after screen of the same junk and I can't get to my apps screen I want.

    Do you know how I can get rid of all this junk off the phone and get back to it opening at my apps screen?

    Damn it is installing as I type and now I wish I waited a little longer. Frankly I was just getting tired of the reminders and caved (and word of camera improvements). If above is true, this doesn't bode well. I hate when updates are steps backward or just a way to get more marketing in your face.

    Sounds like you may have done a factory/data reset. Is your Moto X stock and used on the carrier it was designed for?
