    Default Settings>Security=Unfortunately, Settings has Stopped

    As the title indicates, since my upgrade to 4.4.2, trying to access the security menu in the settings causes Settings to suddenly stop. I have games acquired through HumbleBundle that I'd like to install, but I can't get to the Security menu to change the settings to allow the install of third-party apps.

    Anybody else have this issue?

    Help?

    I have not have that error. You could try going into settings, apps, swipe to all, settings (the app), clear data. Do the same for settings storage (app). Hopefully that should clear the corrupted settings data and get you going. Note though, this will put your settings to the defaults, so you'll have to redo your settings to your liking. Other than that, try booting into recovery and wipe your cache from there. You shouldn't lose any data other than the system settings either way.

    The cache and data in Storage Settings is grayed out. I can clear out the cache in the Settings app, but when I try to clear the data and press OK the tablet just resets itself and the problem continues. How do I boot into recovery?

    UPDATE: I found out how to boot into recovery. Cleared the cache. Didn't work. Ended up doing a factory reset (both from the settings menu AND from the boot into recovery). Set it so apps and everything didn't automatically restore in case it was an issue with that.

    I'm still having the same issue.

    I'm sorry to hear that. From what I understood, you didn't seem to have problems prior to upgrading to 4.4.2. Clearly, this suggests a bug in the update. I'd contact Nvidia and/or EVGA to see if you can get a new tablet under warranty. Other than that, you could unlock your tablet (voids your warranty) and try tomsgt's suprertools package to install a fresh 4.4.2 installation with options to root and more. But I'd strongly suggest getting that replacement tablet though.

    Thanks. I'm deathly afraid of rooting. I've spoken with Nvidia and they told me to address EVGA. So i've put in a ticket with EVGA but haven't heard anything back yet.
