    Have had this problem for a while and have tried everything I can think of, including a factory reset but to no avail. Read this, tried it and am now back to full functionality. Thank you!!

    I've had this problem for months. Finally Solved!
    1. Cleared all Data and Cache for any S Note icon app
    2. downloaded a new keyboard language as advised above, but the path on my phone is as follows:
    Settings\(Personal)\Language and Input\Samsung keyboard(Settings *)\Input Languages

    I chose another English version, and it asked me to update it. Once downloaded, S Note worked again, and my old notes re-appeared.

    I had to hard reset my Note 2 and ever since then I've been getting this damned error. I've tried all of the above suggestions and none of them worked.

    To be specific, I have a Verizon SCH-I605 running 4.1.1 and a stock rooted ROM with no OTA updates. S-Note always ran fine before. Now I can create new notes by pulling the stylus to get the mini-popup S-Note window and then clicking Save. That works OK. I can open the S-Note app and see the icons for all my notes OK. I can sync, create new folders, and even delete existing notes. But no matter which note I click on, it refuses to open (screen goes black and then I get the "unfortunately" error.)

    I'm guessing this is a permission and/or UID/GID problem. I've found S-note mentioned in the following places:

    /data/media/S Note <- actual notes are here, also init.txt

    and have tried changing permissions and owner/group settings, all to no avail. I've tried clearing the data and cache, I've tried reloading from Titanium Backup,I've tried downloading new languages (why would that work anyway?), I've tried doing the Sacred S-Note dance under a full moon in the back yard, all to no avail.

    One more clue (maybe): my Samsung keyboard also quit working at the same time (ie. after the hard reset). I had to install Swift Beta to get a keyboard that works and has a dedicated number row.

    Could someone with a working S-Note on a Galaxy Note 2 and Root Explorer please tell me what the correct permissions anf UID/GID are for /data/media/S Note/? That's my best guess as to where the problem lies.

    I'm really pulling my hair out over this one. Foo!

    I searched all over for the solution, figured I'd have to adapt to life without S-Note. Thanks so much for the fix!

    i had same kind of problem with s note after flashing it with a custom ROM in my gtn 8000. It troubled me alot but finally got the solution by installing languages in keyboard setting.
    go to setting>language and inputs >click on settings of Samsung keyboard>choose Handwriting> choose Input languages

    u will see lot of languages to download.
    download any one of them........................ wait for finishing installation...

    Hope it works for u as it did for me.
    if does nt work no hard feelings..
    It works for me too, thank you so much!

    I have a note 10.1, 2014 edition, running no ROMS or what have you. I've tried the above fixes and nothing is working.

    I've gone as far as booting in safe mode to see if some rogue app was causing this.
    am I destined to export all of my notes and factory reset my tablet?
    Thank you
