lots of Force Closes after power up

    Last night I was using my Kyros 7024 without any problem and I powered it off without any problem. This morning when I turned it, it flooded the screen with many Force Close messages. When I turn it on now I get prompted for the Launcher or Setup Wizard. When I select Launcher, I get the messages (The application ... has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force Close.) from many applications, such as Google Services Framework, Gmail, K-9 Mail, Amazon mp3 player, Appstore, Folder Organizer, etc. (a dozen or more). When I have done all the Force Closes, some of the remaining apps seem to work... sort of. The Home button doesn't seem to work.

    I didn't install any apps yesterday and didn't use any that I haven't used many times before. (I think the last thing I was doing was using US Newspapers to read some online news.)

    I've tried rebooting and resetting the tablet (via the reset button) several times and it doesn't help.

    I would appreciate it if you could suggest anything else I can try, if there are any diagnostics I can run, etc.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I haven't used adb yet, but I'm comfortable at the shell level. How can adb help?

    In that thread, Vernox provided a link to a page with info about how to log errors using adb. This may help you find the cause of fcs.

    Thanks for the suggestion, lfom. Although I have installed adb, I was able to get the logs using the aLogcat app (initial part pasted in below). I can't make a lot of sense out of it, but I notice fsck_msdos reporting "Primary/Backup bootblock miscompare", which doesn't sound good. Then I see some reports of sqlite not being able to open some files. Then there seem to be a lot of errors from SpringPad, but I think by then things have already fallen apart. To my inexpert eye it looks like some critical files are corrupted or gone. (I have noticed that several of my installed apps are gone entirely.) Can anyone tell me if this is the most likely problem? Is there anyway to recover short of going back to factory settings? Thanks for any help!

    Just as a followup, I decided to restore it to factory settings, which seems to have fixed the problem. Now I have to restore all my apps (sigh); at least all the data from the internal and external sd cards was backed up. On the other hand my Home button seems to have stopped working after restoring to factory settings, but I guess that's another issue.

    Home button usually stops working after you try to install google services framework and market. You must factory restore to fix. Happened to me once and never again.

    Argh... I guess I'll be installing my apps and entering my settings again. Can anyone suggest a good backup solution? I do think the problem started after I installed the Google Services Framework. Another problem is that whenever I power it up it asks me to recalibrate the screen (and then says recalibration failed); that may have also started when I installed the Google stuff. Thanks for the tip.

    Is your MID7024 new? I had a similar problem with a MID1024 a while ago. It would work fine for a while and then started with FCs when it was started, usually after freezing or turning off while sleeping (known problem for these models). So I wonder if it could be caused by a corrupted GoogleServicesFramework.apk or something like this... It would only stop after restored. Then it died after I tried to flash a firmware: it frozen while flashing the user data and then simply would not start anymore. So maybe the FCs were caused by a defective hardware as well, that's why I am curious now...

    About the backup apk, most famous is Titanium, but the usefull features are paid. I didn't find any free app that would backup user data as well, and your device must be properly rooted for Titanium to work. If it's rooted, you can simply "tar" the /data folder and restore it, I have seen some tutorials about it elsewhere, but I can't confirm if it really works.

    I've had the 7024 for about three months and I haven't had any trouble with it before. The FC problem started a couple days ago when I powered it up in the morning, and I don't recall installing any apps the day before, so maybe it was a hardware problem that corrupted some system files. Anyhow, I hope it doesn't happen again. It seems to be working fine now. I tried installing the Google files several times, but I wasn't doing it correctly. Once I did it correctly, I didn't have any more problems. The Home button is working, there are no recalibration requests, etc. I did use App Backup and Restore (free app) to back up my apps to the SD card, which made restoring them much easier. I did have to reenter all the user data, which was very tedious. I've been reluctant to root the tablet, but I'm starting to think it may be worth the effort.
