How do you keep Google Apps from updating automatically? Mine seems to update but i now know how to fix the problem. It is just a hassle.

by

Inside the google play store, there are 3 vertical bars at the top left. Tap it to pull down the Google Play menu. Scroll down to the bottom, and select settings. In the settings, the first option will let you stop the auto update of the apps.

I just ran into this problem yesterday at the shop and I was able to resolve the issue by going to Settings - Application Manager - Google App - Uninstall updates.

Let me know if that helps your problem!

Thank you, uninstalling updates to the Google app fixed the problem! I updated 34 apps in one go yesterday and the error would pop up whenever I held down the home button on my Note 2 to open the multitasking menu. After tapping OK it would refresh the UI and lock the phone. Couldn't close any apps due to this error. Thanks again!

Sounds like an ART incompatibility. You probably installed an app recently that doesn't work properly with ART. Presumably it added itself to the start-up apps. That's why your UI crashes when booting up. You will have to find a way to either remove the app in question or go back to the Dalvik runtime.

I went through the same ordeal a month ago when I opted to try out ART. Of the various solutions I found on the internet only this one by androidcentral user sajidr worked. I'll quote it here in case the forum post goes down:

I managed to switch my runtime back to Dalvik. It was painfully slow but in the end I didn't have to do a factory reset.

There's a fraction of a second after unlocking when the screen responds to a touch or swipe. This happens only right after you see the error message popup - "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped". If you do not see this message after unlock then open up the camera from the lock screen & close it.

Next, follow these steps to open up the app drawer - 1. Unlock the phone 2. Once you see the popup "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped", keep tapping on the area where you think the app drawer icon is. At the same time, using another finger click on the OK button of the systemui message box. 3. If your timing's good then once the message box is closed, the app drawer should open. 4. The phone would go back to lock screen but the app drawer would be open. You can validate this by unlocking the phone.

Repeat the above steps to swipe over to your Settings app. Instead of tapping, do short swipes & then click on the message box OK button. Each time the phone would go back to the lock screen but you should be able to slowly navigate over to change your runtime.

Once I got the hang of it, it took me about 15 minutes to go to Settings & change the runtime.

Don't bother trying to uninsintall flipboard from your play store this way. I tried it twice & both times the phone rebooted itself after i clicked the uninstall button.

If your screen layout shifts vertically after the unlock then tap on the area where you first see the icon & not where it moves to after the shift.

Good luck.

Other users have had varying success with booting to safe mode and disabling ART / ART-incompatible apps from there.

I just installed ZenUI launcher and somehow it fixed the problem in my Galaxy S3 Neo.

Edit: My phone was able to start but whenever I tried to clear all the open apps by pressing the home button for 2 seconds, it showed this error message ['com.android.systemui has stopped working, unfortunately'].

So first I factory reset the phone, the error was gone. Then when google play store was restoring all my apps, the error message came back. After lots of hit and trial, I installed a Launcher and then just by installing (not even using it), the error was gone.

I tried installing a launcher and reseting to factory settings to...didn't work for me . Maybe it depends on the device since uninstalling updates isn't the only option that resolves this problem...just a guess...idk.

For my old school galaxy s4, I accept updates on some of my apps. Google was my issue. Go to play store and uninstall updates be sure your google settings are set to not automatically allow updates
