    Mine works. Just hold on a word or letter and the little selectors should pop up then you can copy it and later hold down somewhere to paste.

    If that doesn't work try rebooting and see if it fixes it.

    same happened to me. There's a fix that works if you're tired. Just go to data and delete everything in your clipboard. And force stop and uninstall updates for test service. One problem for me though I DON'T HAVE A CLIPBOARD FOLDER. It's not there. I don't have one at all. Could the rom I'm running have deleted it? I don't want to factory reset. That sucks monkey ***. Please help

    Here is the fix if you are on a rooted device.

    1. boot recovery (CWM) > advanced > wipe cache
    2. reboot phone > Root Explorer > delete /data/clipbord/*
    3. reboot recovery again > advanved > fix permissions
    4. reboot phone > it's fine

    Sorry, but on an unrooted phone the only fix I've found is a factory reset.

    1. What will happen when we wipe cache? Will we lose anything?

    2. I don't have root explorer, I have ES file explorer (will that work?) and there is no clipboard in data or anywhere else on the phone. It's completely gone.

    Thanks, I know I'm a pest skunk

    With es file explorer you must go to settings/root settings/ check root explorer and check mount file system as writable.

    when you open es you must click on favorites then choose the phone icon. then find the data folder. Now you will see the clipboard folder.

    You were looking at: mnt/extsdcard/data

    You should be looking in :/data

    if you see a bunch of com. files you went too far and entered :/data/data

    Wiping cache will not cause you to lose any data or apps. It will only make your phone create a new cache. When your phone boots it will say updating android. When this happens its just rebuilding its cache. No worries...

    I sure hope so. That was a pain in the arse. Lol

    And yeah I figured that skunk. Even I found a couple solutions but they ask used for explorer and I guess I just didn't know what the hell I was doing in es file explorer. Haha
