Why Does My Xiaomi Phone Keep Crashing Apps?

If apps are regularly crashing on your Xiaomi phone, today’s article might help you. As usual, we also include a reported case as well as the ways to fix this problem. We hope you’ll find this post helpful. To answer the abovementioned question you need to know the reason for the app crash. App crash may happen due to insufficient memory, too much RAM load, defective app, etc. The issue can be related to the Android System Webview app. Check whether your phone’s memory is full. If it is, then free up some memory. This is the simplest thing you can do. But usually, it doesn’t help.

If all the apps keep closing, then we have serious problems with the UI. This type of problem can also happen on other Android devices too and usually, it’s caused by a system-wide modification. To troubleshoot this problem, follow our suggestions below.

Clear Cache Partition

Android uses a special cache called system cache to load apps quickly as well as do other tasks efficiently. Sometimes, this cache may get corrupted or becomes outdated, which results to all sorts of bugs. To ensure that your phone has good system cache, you should clear the cache partition once every few months. This is easy to do and won’t take a minute. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Power off your phone. This is important. You can’t boot to Recovery Mode if your phone is on when pressing the hardware button combinations below.
  2. Boot into the recovery mode with these steps:
  • Press both Volume Down and Power buttons and hold them together.
  • Once the boot menu or logo appears, release the buttons.
  • Now, choose the Recovery mode and enter into it.
  • You should be entered into the recovery mode.
  1. Under the recovery mode, tap on Wipe Cache Partition.
  2. Perform this action by following the on-screen instructions.
  3. Once you are done, exit this mode.

Install system updates

Sometimes, app crashes happen if the Operating System is not updated. Make sure that your Xiaomi phone software runs the latest update by checking for Android updates from time to time.

Update Apps

Just like with outdated OS, apps running older or incompatible versions may lead to problems sometimes. Be sure that all apps in the system are updated. Simply open the Google Play Store app and update all your apps from there.

Undo recent modification or changes

If you recently tried to implement system changes on your Xiaomi phone by rooting, installing apps from other sources, or flashing non-official firmware, this may be the reason for the problem. Try to undo whatever you did and see what happens. So, for instance, if apps started crashing after rooting the device, unrooting may help.

Restart to Safe Mode

In other cases, a bad third party app may cause the system to become unstable. To check if a bad app is the culprit, run your device to Safe Mode and observe.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Your device must be powered on.
  2. Press the power button on phone.
  3. When the power off, restart, airplane mode, WiFi mode, etc. menu will be displayed, release the power button.
  4. Now, long press the power off word on screen.
  5. Keep pressing this word until the Android Safe Mode message is being displayed on your phone.
  6. Select to reboot into Android Safe Mode.
  7. When done, a dedicated Safe Mode watermark will be displayed on your smartphone
  8. Observe the phone and check for the problem.

If your device works normally and apps won’t crash, a downloaded app must be causing it. To identify the problem app, you must use a method of elimination.

  1. Boot to safe mode.
  2. Check for the problem.
  3. Once you’ve confirmed that a third party app is to blame, you can start uninstalling apps individually. We suggest that you begin with the most recent ones you added.
  4. After you uninstall an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem.
  5. If your Xiaomi phone still has the crashing problem, repeat steps 1-4.

Factory Reset

If this problem started happening all of a sudden and you can’t seem to identify the cause, the best thing to do is to revert all software settings to their defaults. Here’s how:

  1. Turn on the phone
  2. Please make sure battery capacity more than 50%
  3. Backup important data of the phone
  4. Open Settings app.
  5. Tap General Setting.
  6. Then tap Backup and Reset.
  7. Tap Factory Data Reset.
  8. Next tap Reset Device.
  9. Tap Delete all.
  10. The Xiaomi phone will do the hard reset or master format to factory default process.

Issue With the Android System Webview

Some Android apps are reportedly crashing on several smartphones and that’s because of an issue with the Android System Webview. For those are unaware, Android System Webview is a piece of software that helps other apps on your device to display web content, without having to open a dedicated web browser.

Android smartphones from brands like Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, Google, and Motorola are facing this apps crashing issue. But thankfully, Xiaomi has now issued its own official workaround for the problem following which the problem should completely disappear.

Anyway, since the issue has been identified as being a part of the latest WebView app update(s), the solution is rather simple, if you haven’t guessed it already. Xiaomi said that they had noticed that some users were facing “MSA keeps stopping”/”Many apps FC” issues.

How To Solve Android System Webview Issue

So, If you faced crashing problem, please, follow the steps below to remove the recent Webview and Chrome updates:

  1. Settings
  2. Apps
  3. Manage Apps
  4. Search for “Webview”
  5. App Info
  6. Uninstall updates

Xiaomi also recommends doing the same for the Google Chrome browser. So if you continue facing crash issues even after the above, then you may follow a similar series of steps for Chrome as well. Here are the steps:

  1. Settings
  2. Apps
  3. Manage Apps
  4. Search for “Chrome”
  5. App Info
  6. Uninstall Updates

This should immediately stop the “MSA and other apps keep stopping” issue on your Xiaomi device. Hopefully, Google also will sort the mess at their end soon.

Additionally, you can also disable auto-updates for the aforementioned apps so that they do not automatically update to the newer broken versions.

Hopefully, you should have solved the crashing issue on your Xiaomi phone.
