Have a problem where all applications show "/appname/ is not responding" when trying to open them.

I can choose between the "Please wait" option, which gives the same message again after a little while or the " Close" option which closes the program.

Get the similar behaviour for all applications except phone and messages apps which shows up briefly as covers in the app-switcher view and then closes down directly without any messages. The only other exception is the Yandex store which seems to be working fine.

Other navigation works as it should and I can switch between views, change ambiance etc. but as the terminal is completely blocked I have no way to try to solve this problem. A factory reset is also impossible as I can not access the settings so I am a little bit stuck right now.

Steps leading up to this behaviour:

  • Reset the phone to factory default.
  • Installed some basic applications like exchange, email, media player...
  • Updated from to
  • Set up exchange login and installed some more standard applications (tweetian and webcat)
  • Downloaded but never installed it
  • Rebooted phone

See: https://together.jolla.com/question/22079/howto-all-pc-users-recover-or-reset-a-device-that-is-stuck-in-boot-loop/, maybe it helps you to restart from factory default.

I did a factory reset via the recovery menu as I couldn't find any other solution. It worked like a charm and a good opportunity to test out that feature.

So the problem is solved (now lets see if I can recreate it... =)

It would be interesting to see if you can recreate the problem.
