Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Nymo 3/21/12 9:38 PM
Just tonight, the Gmail app on my Droid X2 phone has been acting up and is unresponsive. For som reason, the inbox keeps flickering, as if it's opening up, but constantly, so I can't even do anything with it.
You can see a video of what's going on here: http://yfrog.com/jweptez
As you can see: It's unresponsive.
And it looks like, after trying to use it, my phone would restart itself. So far, I don't see this flickering issue. I've tried un-installing the app, updating it, restarting my phone, etc: But it still happens.

This just started happening, bu there was some other little issues earlier today:
For some reason, I would mark or read emails on my Macbook at Gmail.com on Chrome, but then it would later say that I have a or several unread emails, even though I did just mark them as read and there's no email that's highlighted white showing that it wasn't read. When I refresh, the 'unread' emails are now shown as unread (shown white, not grey) and I'd have to mark it as read again. When I looked at my phone, I noticed that the unread emails were still not marked read on there, even though it was on the computer. I suspect that the Android app was to blame for this.

Not sure what else to say about this, other than I'm really annoyed with it. I really hope there's someway to have a quick fix on this.
Thanks

I'm having the exact problem on my Droid X, which started tonight for me as well. When I try and open my regular gmail account, the inbox flickers similar to how yours does. I tried clearing the cache and data on the gmail app, but that didn't help. Interestingly enough, my school's email (which is ran through gmail), works fine but my regular gmail account will not work on my phone anymore.

Also, whenever I click on my account (top right corner in the gmail app), only my school email account appears, when before both my regular gmail and school accounts showed up. My gmail account still appears in my phone's accounts, though.

Basically having the exact same issue on my Motorola Xoom. Overnight, the Gmail app has become completely unusable due to constant flickering / reloading. It's still fine on my Samsung phone, though.

Looking at an Android forum, this started happening to a lot of people sometime last night. Weird -- an really irritating.

I am having same issue on Droid Razr Maxx.  Problem started this morning.  My wife has same phone but problem is not happening.  My 2 Secondary Accounts work just fine but but Primary Email Account keeps flckering and trying to open my inbox but never does.  
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Brand0n 3/22/12 6:44 AM
Same issue on HTC Desire. Judging by the plethora of 1-star reviews in the Marketplace, this is pretty widespread issue. Not sure if it's Android-specific or not.
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Ryan780 3/22/12 7:18 AM
I'm having the same trouble on my HTC EVO.  Started last night around 11pm eastern.  Can access the secondary account but not the primary.  Called Sprint Tech support and they said I might have to do a factory reset.  OUCH!  Any other ideas of what might be causing this?

While the gmail app still is not working, you can set up your gmail account in the email app which is working for me so far.
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it spacecowboywes 3/22/12 10:02 AM
Same issues here...  Droid X2. But I have a screen blackout that occurs if I touch the screen.  Really annoying when you rely on email for daily life. Other family members on Android not having this issue with there phones...

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it psc777 3/22/12 10:58 AM
Same here, started late afternoon Wednesday for me.
Almost thought it was my phone, just about did a factory reset, lol.
Then I read others with same issues at google play.

You would think it would be an easy fix, or simply roll back the update.

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it RevShaun 3/22/12 11:39 AM
thank you for finding that. Did the work around this morning and it's ok.  Doesn't push email to Android like it does my iPad which is sad. Lowest refresh interval is 5 min which is tolerable.

Nope, phone has just been sitting on my desk, picked it up to try and much to my surprise, it was working normal.

Checked again, still working fine
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it soaptylerdurden 3/22/12 2:21 PM
Same, randomly checked my email. Works just fine.
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Nymo 3/22/12 2:50 PM
Strange: Mine is still acting up.
Why, it's probably in a worse condition now: After opening the Gmail app and going to the home page, the Gmail app will still open itself up constantly.

I am having the same issue. Gmail app wont open messages, black screen flashes quickly when trying to open message, then back to inbox.  Back arrow and menu also not working.  Just repeats flash randomly and will open on its own when using other apps or on home screen. Somewhat frustrated by lack of info on what is going on.

My phone never did the flickering issue, instead I received a sign-in error for my e-mail account after rebooting the phone when it locked up around 4 PM Eastern.  I am now locked out of my primary Google account due to suspicious activity; I'd really, really rather avoid resetting my password.

The issue has been resolved for me as I was on another application and it froze on my and force quit did not work, so I simply REMOVED THE BATTERY out without turning off the phone and then rebooted the phone and found that gmail has started to work fine.

When did you start experiencing this issue: Within the past 24 hrs. If i open the Gmail app it just flickers and doesn't let me use it. Every now and then it also removes one of my accounts and then syncs it back. The flickering remains constant. I've tried turning the phone off and on and taking out the battery to no avail.

Thanks Brittany!

Hi all, 

Thanks for all the details that you've posted. We've isolated the issue and put a fix in and so the flickering should stop. If the flickering does not stop for you, try removing and re-adding the account on your device. If that does not work, feel free to reach out on this thread and we can continue to investigate. Thank you for all of your patience. 

Best, 
BrittanyBee

Just cutting and pasting my issues from the Googling Google blog on ZDNet:
<big><strong>Update (3/23/2012, 12:43AM EDT)</strong></big>
Upon restarting my phone, my primary email account was not available within the Gmail app. Interestingly, many users had reported that the bug only existed in their primary account, although I wasn't able to get to other accounts to test this. Stepping through the "Add Account" process in the app appeared to successfully add my primary account back to Gmail, but, upon returning to the account selection screen, my primary account was unavailable. I'll post further updates tonight as Google moves to resolve this problem.

<big><strong>Update (3/23/2012, 3:10AM EDT)</strong></big>
Google is reporting that it has implemented a fix for the flickering bug. According to "BrittanyBee",

<blockquote>We've isolated the issue and put a fix in and so the flickering should stop. If the flickering does not stop for you, try removing and re-adding the account on your device. If that does not work, feel free to reach out on this thread and we can continue to investigate. Thank you for all of your patience. </blockquote>

Per my first update, I had already "re-added" my primary account with no result; when I attempted to add it again, Android reported that I had already added the account. Restarting my phone resulted in another hard restart, at which point I was prompted to enter my MOTOBLUR account and password, since my "SIM had recently been removed". My primary Gmail account was listed as the only choice for a login, so I entered my Gmail password - I never set up a separate MOTOBLUR account. And guess what? That password wasn't correct. My only other option was to reset my phone. I could see emails being delivered, but couldn't actually get into my phone.

****
Before I reset my phone, any thoughts? Love to post a workaround on the blog.

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Drewster2007 3/23/12 2:08 AM
Hello,

OK. In UK - Motorola Xoom running Android 3.2 - major flashing screen issue on my main business account from this morning (07.00 GMT). Also, the Main Account has disappeared from the list in the main Gmail App and I cannot add it. It just says 'account already loaded on this device'. Strangely - my other Gmail accounts do seem to work OK. I've done big resets of the Xoom and cleared caches and run virus checker too. No fix. I've decided not to fiddle with anything else until I get more news - hopefully here.

On my Samsung Galaxy Note - which is running 2.3.6 - it seems fine. I've done tests and the Gmail is working OK.

Frustrating as its my main Gmail business account that has gone from Xoom

However, when there has been minor issues in past with Android and Gmail the fix is normally quick and painless. In four years of using Android and Gmail this is the first major outage and issue I've had.

As a polite ask - please update here as soon as you have any info on fixes - that would be really appreciated.

Thanks

AA

Hi, still having this issue.

Device Name: Samsung Galaxy S2
Android Build & Version (Settings>About Phone): 2.3.7 I9100XXLPQ (CM7.2rc1)
Amount of accounts synced: 2 gmail accounts: the primary is having this issue. The second account works fine.
When did you start experiencing this issue: In 22 Feb at 20:00 GMT I entered Youtube app on my Android and selected the primary gmail account. At 22:00 GMT I entered Gmail app and noticed this issue.

Cannot remove my gmail account as it's the primary account.

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Mattbell69 3/23/12 2:56 AM
Hi there,

I am in the UK and I and having problems with my Smasung Galaxy S2 (ver 2.3.3), but my Motorola Xoom (ver 3.2) it's all fine.   Only have one account.

I can only guess that this issue that now exists on devices is due using the device when the bug was active. Other devices used outside of that window are working fine.

What would you recommend to make the device work again?

I don't wish to have to reset my phone to make this work...

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it SteliosA 3/23/12 3:15 AM
My device is Desire HD with android 2.3.5
i have only one account which is the primary account.
Issue started at 22/03/2012 around 22:00 and i still having it (23/03/2012 12:14 GMT+2)
In gmail app when setting up a second account i can see that the primary account is not listed.
I cannot add the primary account because the phone says that is already there ?
I cannot remove it and add it again because it says that i have to do a factory reset which i do not consider as an option right now.
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Lohoris 3/23/12 3:36 AM
Removing the main account causes a factory reset, which is annoying to say the least. I'd do it gladly if I was sure it helped; I'm sorry, but asking us to do it because it "might help or not"...

still got the problem here:

Nexus S

Android 2.3.6 (started having problems with 2.3.3 or 2.3.4, did an update, didn't help)

Only one google account synced, plus one skype account synced, and one dropbox account not synced.

Started having problems more or less yesterday at 20~21 GMT+1, was working fine until 18~19 (I've heard some people started having problems as much as 20 hours before that IIRC).

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it RikR 3/23/12 3:43 AM

This is happening on my Evo Shift 4G - Started about 8:00 p.m. last night and continues.  I've tried soft reset, clearing my gmail data, taking the battery out, and a service call to my mobile phone company.  

Strangely, I am currently out of all cell phone range and it's still doing it.  If this was solely a problem with their servers, then why is my phone, now completely cut off from all cell signal, still freaking out?

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Drewster2007 3/23/12 5:15 AM
Its 12.05 (GMT). I HAVE A FIX. I had issues with my primary Gmail account this morning on Motorola Xoom with Android 3.2. - the flickering screen and not recognising the account.

FIX:

1 - Go to ACCOUNTS AND SYNC and DELETE the account that's affected (don't worry you are only deleting the account on the Tab /Mobi - not WHOLE email account on the servers).

2 - Them, go to the Gmail App and 'ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT'. Put in and synch the account you got rid off putting in your normal passwords. If on WiFi - only takes about 2 minutes of swirly green spiral doing its thing.

3- When you go back into your Gmail App - you will see the Account back in its place, though it may be at the foot, if you have a list of accounts.

4 - I did lose my automatic signature - but easy to sort.

4 - I've done the above and MY XOOM back to normal. If anything, seems a bit quicker at loading then it has been past few weeks.

Hope this helps those still in the frustration phase.

Fingers crossed this is just a one off minor glitch. In my experience, Gmail and Android has been a lifesaver for me so hoping this is all good now.

Best,

D

you cannot delete the primary account. It says that you have to do a factory reset. At least that is happening to my phone.

I have several gmail accounts synced to my phone.  It appears my primary one is the one giving me problems.  I from "manage applications" I cleared the data on Gmail.  After doing this, when I open the Gmail app it asks me which account I want to connect to.  If I select one of my alternate accounts it seems to work fine.  However, if I then try to "add account" from within the app it won't let me put in my credentials for my primary gmail account, saying that that account already exists on phone.  So I cleared data for gmail app again, opened the app, selected my primary account, and the app is back to going bezerk.

So I finally got it working!  I had to delete the Google account on my phone which meant I lost everything as it went back to Factory Settings.  Then I set up the phone as if it was new and everything worked.

Not sure that this problem on their servers did but it really screwed my phone up!

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it pxpto 3/23/12 7:27 AM
If you cannot delete your google account because it's the primary one, AND you have root, you can go to /system/framework and rename framework-res.apk to framework-res.apk.bak for 5 seconds. A few Force Closes will appear (that's normal) and then rename it back to framework-res.apk. Restart your phone and add your google account again.

This worked for me.

DO THIS ONLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Jorge

                                                Build: FROYO.UCKH1
Amount of accounts synced: 2 (one personal GMail and one Apps)

When did you start experiencing this issue: approx 6pm on 3/22.

  I have attempted the following fixes since 8am this morning:
    - cycle the power
    - removed battery without powering down
    - factory reset

  After the factory reset, I had to contact AT&T to have my data reset.  The
  rep told me I probably could have reset it myself by removing the battery for
  5 mins after the device had rebooted following the reset.

  I hope to have all my apps, accounts, and settings restored by the end of the
  day.  >:(

So-ooo "not cool", Google...

Hi Brittany,

Recently started having this problem with my father's HTC Evo 3D. It's running HTC's stock Android 2.3.4, kernel version 2.6.35.13.

The app seems to continously open the same inbox intent in a loop at varying speeds (whether throttled by code or the CPU, I don't know). As others have mentioned, removing the account and adding it again is a huge inconvenience given that the account is the default account for the phone and requires a factory reset in order to do so.

If you don't have a device with this issue to test on, I'll happily run any debug builds to help you get to the bottom of this.

I renamed framework-res.apk to framework-res.apk.bak.  I ended up in an endless loop of getting "Force Close" messages and couldn't get back to the file app to change the name back.  So I pulled batter and now phone won't boot.  This has turned into a complete fiasco.

Hi, sorry to hear that. You should have waited for all the FC's to go away.. You should NOT have rebooted the phone without framework-res.apk in order...

Now you need to access your filesystem whtough ADB and rename the file:

c:\>adb.exe shell sudo ren /system/framework/framework-res.apk.bak /system/framework/framework-res.apk

Help on ADB here: http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/adb.html

Good luck!

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it tfno 3/23/12 8:44 AM
Same problem since yesterday on Galaxy Note with 2.3.6.  I have 3 Google accounts, the non-default ones work, the default account flickers and Gmail hangs.  Syncing of ail works and I get the notification that new mail arrive. If I go into one of the others accounts first after clearing gmail data, I cannot see my default account in the account list.  The problem came just after I updated the Youtube app, maybe related ?

Have tried several times to clear gmail data but the problem remains.  I cannot delete the account since it says other apps rely on it and I do not want to reset the device, too much work to set it up again.

I was getting the same FC notice over and over. I had acknowledged the FC notice like 30 time or more and still couldn't get back to the file explorer screen.

I'll read about how to do the ADB thing and see if I can fix it.  Does it matter that USB debugging wasn't turned on?

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it pxpto 3/23/12 9:40 AM
ADB will only work if you have USB debugging enabled... If not... you will have to reflash your ROM with ODIN...

Samsung Galaxy S, right?

Try http://www.samfirmware.com for stock ROM's, or http://www.cyanogenmod.com for the best Comunity ROM.

If you reflash the SAME rom you had, you won't loose any data (apps, contacts, sms's). Your pictures, etc are safe.

When did you start experiencing this issue: around 7pm EST on 3/22. Still seeing it as of 1:30pm EST on 3/23.

Tried all sorts of fixes and none worked.
1) wipe cache, dalvik cache, battery stats
2) flash another kernel
3) FC Gmail, clear cache, clear data
4) Restore an old backup of the Gmail data

It happened shortly after I installed the update to Google Voice. So I also tried installing an old backup version of data and app for Google Voice, but didn't help.

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it pxpto 3/23/12 10:36 AM
It's very easy. You have everything you need in samfirmware.com.

1. Register http://www.samfirmware.com (free)
2. Select your device
3. Choose a ROM (the ZIP package you download already has ODIN in it)
3. Check the "Upgrade manual" in the site
4. Follow the manual..

Hi Brittany

I'am having the same problem. its only happening to one of the two gmail/google accounts i have on my phone & its the MAIN account. I first saw it around 07:30 CST = GMT -6 3-23-2012

I wiped data with Titanium Backup on the gmail app & google serices framwork, I cleared the data & stuff from the android OS, uninstalled from google play, uninstalled with android OS, uninstalled with Titanium backup, REinstalled, i rebooted after every one of the things i tried & booted to CWM/recovery to wipe dalvik & cache before reinstalling/downloading from 'play" & i tried a TB restore with & out data non of that worked.

My Phone is a Samsung SPH-D700 Epic 4G

This also shows how dumb it is to have to wipe the whole phone out just to remove or change the main account. That should be changed ASAP  as a hotfix patch for ALL android versions not in android 6.7.999.3 at some time years down the road. Its fine if removing the main account would uninstall the paid apps that you bought with said account. I don't want to get to off topic but why is android setup like this. I mean look at all the problems it's causing!

Clear Data?  That says will all data deleted permanently.  Files, settings, accounts, databases and so on.  Is this uninstalling Gmail?  Google account?
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Lohoris 3/23/12 12:37 PM
"Clear data" gives that same message for all applications, I guess.
Still, it won't actually delete anything worth of notice, just the gmail settings, which are mostly its ringtone and nothing more.

if you're desperate for mail then use the web browser version or K9 mail app while you wait.

I had this problem yesterday. I changed the password on my gmail account on my computer.  Synced my phone & received the message that I couldn't connect.

I changed the password on the gmail on my phone. Synced again and then everything worked fine.

I did not clear data or re-set anything else.  I did try a soft & hard re-boot first, neither worked.  I only changed my password because I was afraid I would wipe out my contact list!

I have an HTC Incredible.

Hi all, 

This issue should be resolved that this point. You should not need to do a factory reset and the flickering should stop. Please let me know if you are still seeing the flickering that you experienced earlier and we can work to investigate. 

Thank you for all of your help and patience.

Mine is still doing it.

MyTouch 4G T-MOBILE OS v2.3.4 kernel version 2.6.35.10-g4dcb781

Running 3 gmail accounts. The primary gmail account is the only one having this issue. If i switch any of the other ones it works fine. Happened right after I upgraded gvoice app.

So it has not been fixed yet I guess

Mine is also still having this issue. I've tried just about everything suggested above. I really don't want to do a hard reset unless absolutely necessary.

HTC Vivid
Version 4.0.3
Build 3.26.502.56
One acct
As soon as my phone update to ICS it started.

When is this going to be fixed?

Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it guz1115 3/24/12 6:22 AM
Mines still flickering and it seems worse then before. What's going on? Is it the upgrade to 4.0 causing it? HELP

Working fine as of 7pm EST 3/23. Didn't do anything to correct issue. Just started to work on its own. Thanks

This is not just on the Android - I am having a bunch of problems just using Gmail and Contacts through the browser - emails disappear, can't see or open any of the contacts, etc.  Really getting in the way of my getting some work done this morning.

I am getting the same inbox failure since the most recent software update.  Previously it was flawless syncing with my USA.NET account.  Bringing up the inbox it kills the sync and flashes back to the initial screen.  Have done the factory reset.  Have tried secure vs unsecure login, pop and imap.

Makes me want to get an iPhone!

Not using android --- this is on my PC.  However, after I posted this I was able to go back to gmail and it was working.  Go figure!
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it Louise100 4/14/12 1:15 PM
This is still happening -- cannot read or delete any emails though gmail because it continues the blinking.

Noticed that many people reported flickering and unresponsive problem with Gmail app back in March. I just updated my iPhone 4S software to ios6 and now have same problem.  Have tried deleting and adding email account as well as removing and re-installing Gmail app, to no avail.  Have only one account synced. Started experiencing issue October 4 immediately after installing ios6 software.
Re: Android app keeps flickering & is unresponsive, plus other issues proceeding it gravi_t 10/6/12 3:24 PM
There is a sticky / pinned post at the top of the list of posts about IOS6 and Gmail. Click on "Gmail" on the left, then on "Show all topics" on the right to find it.

What was the issue? I'm having the same problem with the app I'm currently developing.
