Stopping applications force closing in Android tablets

This is example for View sonic Gtablet


Many people have this issue with the stock tablet. Everything may work fine, then all of a sudden you will get applications force closing all over. You can do a fresh install of TnT stock, with a factory reset, and still get the FC's.


We don't know exactly what it is, but is related to something in the /data partition causing issues that a regular wipe doesn't fix. For most people this fix will only need to be done once for the life of your tablet.


Warning, this will wipe your Data and internal sdcard(meaning backups are gone)
1) Copy your backups/data from your internal sdcard to your computer
2) clockwork Install clockwork
3) Boot into clockwork by holding volume+ and power until you see the black text pop up
4) Go to the advanced menu
5) Select Partition SDCARD
6) Select 2048 for first option presented
7) Select 0 for second option presented
8) Apply the settings and wait for it to be finished
9) Go back to main menu and do a factory reset to be safe
10) Reboot, and hopefully no more force closes
