So, every once in awhile I get a question like this:
So every rom i install on my note book my mms and sms force closes on. Telling me that messaging has stop work. Please help before i throw my phone from a moving car
Well, there’s a fix for this. The reason why you get force closes on your Galaxy Note SGH-i717 when you install custom ROMs and if it doesn’t go away even with wiping cache, your data partition has become corrupt.
For fix, simply download Darkside Wipe (it’s for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 but I’ve used it on my Galaxy Note SGH-i717 before to fix) and flash it in ClockworkMod Recovery. Then install any custom ROM you want to run, and voila, no more force closes.
Download Darkside Wipe
I am not exactly sure on why this is happening but usually the problem goes away for good after flashing Darkside Wipe.
Warning: DO NOT FLASH THIS ON GT-N7000 models, it’s not compatible!Need Help? Follow/add me on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter!
