    My Note Pro 12.2 started giving the error "Unfortunately S Note has stopped" regularly when I write on S Note. Does anyone have the same issue?

    I tried the following:
    1. Clear cache of S Note under Settings -> Application Manager -> All -> S Note
    2. Clear data of S Note under the same

    I still get the error intermittently. This is really annoying because I use S Note extensively. I would hate to hard-reset since I've a lot of stuffs on it now.

    You may try clearing the main cache. Power off the note. Hold down the home button and press and hold down the power button. A menu should come up with the option to cleae cache. I do not have my note with me to provide exact instructions but this is the method employed on the note 3. Be careful in this menu because you can factory reset here as well.

    Olay I have my tab now. I tpld you slightly wrong. Hold down home key and then press volume down while holding these two press power button when it vibrates and you see in left corner booting recovery let go of all three buttons. Then volume down to move to wipe cache partition and power button to select. Then reboot will appear. Press power button. See if this doesnt fix your issue. 90 percent of issues can be corected with thos method.

    Thanks... I tried your instructions:
    1. shutdown
    2. press and hold Home key and Volume Down, and then press Power button until it vibrates and startup
    3. On the screen, I get a big message:
    "Warning! A custom OS can cause critical problems in phone and installed applications.
    If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume up key
    Otherwise, press the volume down key to cancel (restart)"
    4. I pressed the volume down key and it rebootedd
    5. Press the power button once (but not sure what it does since it was already rebooting)

    Unfortunately, when I tried S Note, I still hit the error "Unfortunately S Note has stopped".

    when you get the warning, go ahead and do the power up button. It has the option to install a custom rom on the screen as well, but you will not be doing that.

    Not sure if you guys realize but the instructions you're giving is for entry into download mode not stock recovery.

    1. Power off the device.
    2. Press and hold VOLUME UP and HOME, then press and hold POWER.
    3. When the "Samsung Galaxy Note Pro SMP-900" logo pops up release POWER and keep holding HOME/VOLUME UP until recovery appears.

    Click image for larger version.

    4. Once in Recovery, use VOLUME DOWN to highlight "wipe cache partition" and then press POWER.
    5. Once cache wiping is complete the menu will reset to show reboot system now as highlighed (the top entry). Simply press POWER and the tablet will reboot.

    Okay maybe I held the volume up instead of volume down, so my mistake. Sorry.

    Thanks guys. I followed Muzzy996's instructions and managed to reset the cache. The S Note still crashes, but seems to be happening less. I can probably live with that.

    Did you install any apps prior to the crashing issue starting within a day or two?

    No, I didn't. Actually a few things coincided with the sudden increase in S Note crashes.
    1. I updated the Note Pro 12.2 to the new firmware OTA
    2. I noticed I wasn't syncing to Samsung account for S Note and I activated the sync. The account had some old notes that were copied over.

    Thinking this as well, my first thought was that it is related to #2 in that the current version is having trouble with one of your old notes.

    Yep, definitely going to log a ticket to Samsung. Thanks guys, appreciate your advise!

    Were they of any help to you? They told me all of the same things suggested here (which I did) and the app still craps out constantly.

    Has anyone on the forum found a way around this issue?

    I have the same issue and it's getting worse everyday. Got so fed up with it and decided to puchase LectureNotes today just to keep on taking and writing notes at work.

    Tried almost everything: clean SNote cache, clean main cache, hard reset 3 times but still no luck.

    Looks like we are left hanging on this issue until Samsung figure out how to fix it.

    When is Samsung going to fix this issue? I'm still having the same problem. Went to Samsung Service Centre to reflash the original stock ROM, ok for a day and Snote starts to force stop again. Crap!!!

    SNote works fine now. For those who have Snote data on Samsung Account, let the app sync with it first, once the app refreshed, no more "SNote has stopped working"! issue. Have no idea how and why, but SNote is working flawlessly now for the last 24 hours.

    Hi, I recently purchased a Pro Note12.2 4G and the SPen was working ok until a couple of weeks ago when the settings of sound 2 on / vibrate on attach/detach / launch aircommand on detach weren't happening. Also, the screen won't turn on and the S pen notification on detach had not shown up.

    I followed the steps you listed to wipe cache and nothing's changed.

    Grateful or any help you can offer.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Christine

    Since it's still under warranty, I would take it to Verizon and let them look at it.

    I recently had this happen on my note 10.1 (2014) and needless to say I was annoyed. After browsing forums and trying every possible fix I could find. I decided to back up all my notes and download, Lecture Notes.

    After I deleted every note in S Note and powered the device off for a charge, to my surprise I tried S Note again today and it's working perfectly.

    This worked for me: Go into My Files, go to Device Storage, go to SnoteData, go to Action memo. Empty the directory. Delete every file in there or maybe move those files to another location, but just empty that directory.

    Boom. No more waiting for the application to import those files, Snote comes right up and I've been using it for ten minutes with no problem. All previous notes are available, all features working fine as far as I can tell.

    I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014 edition.

    Does anyone know a good knowledge base for further Apps taking advantage of the S-Pen like S-Note?
