The problem that I want to talk about in this guide started when I got a message upon starting my phone saying, ‘UIDs on the system are inconsistent. You need to wipe your data partition or your device will be unstable.

I’m feeling lucky’. I did nothing special, but when I used my phone later, I noticed that I cannot open any app or navigate the desktop and that the device gets stuck at Android’s screen.

After a while, I could only answer calls and open an email when I see the notification at the notification bar, but then, the handset got stuck again. Why is this happening?

There might be some corrupted system files causing the problem and even one contributor in the forum of Verizon revealed the fact that the Customer Support of the carrier told him that the issue might be caused by a virus in his system.
