i was getting the following error on my Android based G1 with the Cyanogen 4.2.15 ROM whenver i rotated the view from the home screen: “The process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again” and “Force Close”.
The fix to the problem was removing one of the desktop widgets. In this case it was the TasKiller widget, i did a long tap on the widget and dragged it to the garbage can. Problem solved. Apparently this is a common problem with desktop widgets when you upgrade to a newer ROM.
The first time this happened my phone was in my pocket and it locked itself out (I was running RC33 version of JFv1.41). I had pattern lock enabled so i was getting “Too many pattern attempts. please login”
No matter how i put my information in username (by itself), email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org it wouldn’t authenticate me.No matter what i did i was not able to get in so i just reflashed the phone. After a reflash the authentication worked fine. At that time I was using one of JFs ROMS so i figured that may have been the issue.
Recently the problem happened again. This time i was using one of Cyanogens ROMS. This time instead of flashing the phone i followed haykuro’s thread to defeat pattern lock:
once i did those adb commands and rebooted the phone it asked to authenticate again but this time it worked! After it authenticates it will ask you for a new unlock pattern. And you’re all set!
This is a really annoying problem and im surprised more people aren’t having it. I hope this helps somebody.
