    I'm getting it also, after every reboot. In searching around, what I have discovered is that it is a very common problem, with all carriers, not just Sprint. Just click on ok, it goes away and does no apparent harm. I think I have seen that it is a known bug in 4.4.2, and that shortly 4.4.3 will come out fixing it and some other small problems that have been found. Most people that have the problem also have Swiftkey installed, as do I. Some think it is a compatibility problem between kitkat and Swiftkey. I guess whoever publishes a fix first will make it go away. Maybe as simple as the next Swiftkey update? In the mean time, all it really requires is one little extra touch on boot up, and doesn't really hurt anything.

    Yeah, it's happening after every reboot but I don't have Swiftkey installed.

    There's been talk of the Google keyboard causing the problem. Uninstalling that keyboard should fix it.

    Thanks. I just uninstalled Swiftkey, and voila, the error message was gone after re-boot! I guess I'll wait until Swiftkey fixes the issue before using the app again.

    Really? All because of a message you only see after rebooting your phone? Click OK and gapps restarts just fine with no issues. To each their own but seems like an awfully steep price to pay for a message you would very rarely see.

    Am I the only person that doesn't get this error message? I have rebooted my phone a few times, only use Switfkey, but have never seen this message come up. From day one after the update, no issue. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but I have not done an FDR either.
    Oh Yeah?! Well, my mom thinks I'm cool!

    This issue is not necessarily tied to Swiftkey. There are people like yourself who have Swiftkey and don't see the message as well as those that see the message that don't have Swiftkey. That being said, most people who see it do have Swiftkey.

    Some seem to think it is an LG G2 kitkat issue. Like I said above no one has shown or experienced anything wrong other than this message. It seems harmless.

    SOOOOO while I was troubleshooting another issue with the G2 (knock off wont work but knock on does)

    I realized that when I disabled my knock feature and rebooted my phone I stopped getting this gapps error msg.

    so I don't know maybe their both related?

    I don't care about the msg so much that I care that the #1 best feature about the phone is no longer working

    I get it every reboot too. If it's not a big deal, then I don't care. I'm just curious if something is going on behind the scenes that could potentially cause a problem.
