Uninstalling the Google App Update like stated above worked for me on the Galaxy note 2 :)
Settings> Application manager> All> Google App> Uninstall updates.
Then you need to unmark the apps auto update from google play store's settings.

Like other users I've been having this issue since yesterday on my Samsung Galaxy S4, causing my phone to crash when I hold the home button to try and close programs. This approach (uninstalling Google App updates) has worked for me and my device is working again.

Uninstalling  Google updates worked like a charm. Then I went into Play store settings and turned off auto updates so this wouldn't  happen again. Have a Samsung S4.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom and uninstalling the Google app update also worked for me.

Uninstalling Google App updates (return to factory version) worked on my Galaxy S III mini.

Thanks to those who included what they did in their comments -- I cannot find the original answer in amongst all the ads, but specifying what they had done enabled me to figure out the solution anyway.

Thanks for all your comments. I also returned the Google app to factory settings and turned off automatic updates in Google play on my Samsung S4 mini and it worked like a charm. I was going to buy a new battery because it was running down fast the last week but I am hoping this solution helps that as well.

I used this solution in my Samsung Galaxy Mega and it worked. Thanks

The truth is that Android is an operating system that works very well, although in Android 5.0 Lollipop bugs have crept alguns. But if we are restless users, we can play a file that should not, and find serious bugs. Today we will see how to fix the error " been arrested" on Android.
This is a serious problem that can temporarily disable mobile if you start to appear continuously. Sometimes the fault is also shown "Unfortunately, the GUI system halted" "but we are in the same situation. Let's see scenarios that may occur this problem and how to solve it:
How to fix the error "has stopped"
- After installing an app: it may be that the app touched some important file, so you must uninstall it. We can reinstall to see if what happened is that there was some sort of corruption in the process, but should not be excluded that the app simply does not get along with our smartphone / OS. The apps most affected by this are the launchers.
- By touching files: as root you can delete files to save space but sometimes we play some we should not. Or maybe we've uninstalled any system app do not want, but which is necessary for the interface. The solution is to put everything you have removed.
- Changing ROM: Can we have forgotten to do the wipes data and cache, and then filed the problem. So the first step is to make and does not work, reinstall the ROM must conscientiously to avoid errors.
- Do not know what you've done: if you see this error and you're not sure what happened (or the previous solutions have failed), it is best factory reset the phone. Lose settings smartphone, but the problem is solved. Now you must be careful to avoid to repeat the steps you took out the error message at first.
Now you know how to fix the error "has stopped" in Android. Those who like to experiment with your terminal can suffer this inconvenience but in the end, worth striving for a bit and enjoy the enormous possibilities of Android.
What do you think of these tricks to fix the error " been arrested" on Android? Do you find useful, or you're not one to do advanced things with your smartphone?

I did the factory reset, and after that, the error started to pop up every single second. Now I really don't know what to do. I deleted the cache partition, I reset the phone (factory restore) more than twice, and still the same.

My problem is my Galaxy Tablet. I can't get any home screen w/apps. The screen is black with '  voice' at the top, message about 'systemui stopped' in the middle of the screen. I  can't get Power Off to work. All I know to do is let the battery run down so it will turn off.
commented Aug 17, 2016 by anonymous
enters safe mode: Get off the menu and holding down the button on Off (the on-screen), will be prompted to restart in safe mode.
I hope at least you let them do that. Thus the system only loads the factory apps and not the user. Tests to go uninstalling the suspect to give that conflict and restart, so until you see the problem. If you use Xposed may be a module (me one gave me that problem, but do not know which).
Wipe Dalvik do and Wipe Cache from the Recovery is not over. Regards!

Mine failed after updating Google version (Jan.12,2017 release). Uninstalled update from Settings>Application Manager>ALL>Google (Unintall update) and it's working now. All the other fixes online didn't work, my last resort would have been Factory Reset, which I didn't want to do. I'm using Samsung S3 (SGH-I747M) version 4.4.2, I know it's old lol. That was the only update I did so easier to figure out, I only do manual updates. Hope this helps!

Had this problem with my Samsung Galaxy s4. Started last friday.

One website discussion stated to clear the partition. Scary notion, this is my only phone. But I did it and it didn't help.

Found this great information here, uninstalling Google App updates. Done this and my phone is back to normal!

Thank you!

I was getting this error when I held down the home key on my Samsung S4 mini to view recent apps. As others suggested, I uninstalled updates to the Google Application, and it fixed the error.

Thank you Google for sending us an update that breaks our phones.

I suffered from same problem 'unfortunately android system ui has stopped ' and nothing worked even factory reset and reboot, but I saw one amazing thing that when I kept it in thinking it won’t cure. In night I charged the mobile battery and switched on and it was magic everything was right, no error so I recommending to wait and patience and charge your smartphone-try to factory reset or reboot (if works)-and then switch on...

Anonymous above me, this is correct. Uninstalling the Google App worked and now I'm having no issues. I just installed Instagram for the first time and this all happened, and whenever I pressed the home button that message would come up, my home screen would go blue, and it would send me back to my lock screen. But I uninstall Google App and it worked. Thanks!!

answered Feb 6, 2016 by anonymous

There are several possibilities for you to leave that ruling. I mention each and possible solution. You check if any of them or perform some tests and tell us if it has been solved.

You have recently installed an application: The cause may be some newly installed application, and in some cases the app's that modify the visual appearance of android as "launchers" are very likely to be the cause.
Solution: Uninstall applications that can or think you may be causing the problem. Do it more recently to date but prior to first rule out the latest applications.
Do you have access "root" or rooted smartphone ?: When your phone is rooted, you can modify all system files, intencionamente or careless. It is very easy to slip away any unwanted changes and to save the file, your mobile phone, no longer respond appropriately. It also often happens that we delete essential files by performing cleaning for S.O. (No "root" it does not).
Solution: Restore the factory.
Have you made changes to ROM ?: If you know change the ROM to your smartphone, maybe it's a beta, alpha, or simply incompatible with some hardware on your phone.
Solution: Switch to a ROM or problems you did not restore the version of STOCK (original phone).
If not any of the above: it may have been something inside the operating system, or a bad system update.
Solution: Restore factory
