Since I rebooted today, Android apps nor the Dalvik Service won't start anymore. Weird, because everything was working correctly up till half an hour ago (been running SailfishOS on my Jolla phone since a few months, currently at 1.0.5.16). I've tried rebooting to no avail. Even tried another reboot to no avail. Tried Killdroid from the store to restart the Android service but it just says "Error starting Android service". So then I tried to do it from the terminal. systemctl gave no output so I directly invoked the sh script. It lead to this output:

I have the same problem, on SF 1.0.5.19. I have only had the Jolla for 2 days and everything was working fine until it was rebooted. After that no android apps will start - they show a cover with 'loading' visible then die. Clean reboots didn't help. Re-installing the android run-time didn't help either so I'm considering a factory reset. Yandex.store wont start so I can't try reinstalling the droid apps.

quick update : did a factory reset and fine since. It survived a couple of reboots and also running out of power in the middle of an android session. The only thing I specifically changed was the Sailfish Mobile Data setting to use 'Internet' instead of WAP, which I read elsewhere might have had an effect. If it happens again I'll try clearing the Dalvik cache.

Thanks, but it isn't needed anymore. Resetted the device, that went wrong, Optima service repaired the phone and now everything's back up and running :)
