I'm asking the question... "How can i fix my android phone that says, "Unfortunately, Launcher has stopped?". There's no accessible screen to open once this is revealed. The light just goes back off again! Please help!

wonderful, thanks a lot

Thank you very much. I cleared the cache and the data and restarted my Bryte tablet and then everything was back to normal.

works well wen u clear LAUNCHER-TECNO p9

I'm repeating with 1. Unmentioned step.  in the settings, security menu I unchecked "unknown sources (allow installations of apps from unknown sources)".(please make sure you check this after the problem is resolved, cuz there are rogue, scrupless  hackers out there.
Now Proceed...
Followed until "uninstall" was not live link so I deleted data. It still went down to 3M. 'Force stopped' it & restarted my ZTE 4.4.4.Went back into settings, disabled, & enabled G+ and G-search. Checked on Launcher-in good health disable/enable link is not live. So I'm guessing one of the  Gs updated it when they were enabled. Seamless! Tech help said "factory reset" Im glad I didnt...No need for that. My home screen looks kissable again!! Good Luck...asking is power!

Omg... Thank you thank you thank you.. :-)

Can you let me know how I can clear the cache when my phone does not allow me to access any app? And soon after i turn it up, I see 'Launcher has stopped' error
commented by

commented by
Does not work. Same problem as above (device if rotated)
commented by
you can access by swipe down where u go for data connection touch.. tap there u get setting
commented by
If clear cache does not work I used clear data and it fixed it,the only problem is I have to go through tutorial again,but all apps are still there.

I encountered this today.  Don't do a factory reset for your phone.  Clearing the Launcher or Launcher3 cache should work.  I had my phone factory reset and it didn't solve the problem so don't.  Your phone is going to attempt to execute the program at a given timeframe so you'd just got to wait when the phone actually gives up executing Launcher.  When it finally stopped, do as what the other said in the above comments, clearing the Launcher or Launcher3 cache from going to the Settings->Apps

Didn't work for ZTE android

thanq very much... u helped me alot.. i shivered till i saw this solution.. bought LENOVA K3 NOTE MUSIC mobile just 1 week b4..

Clear all data & catch from Launcher in setting =apps = all apps = launcher
commented by
You have tried to put another launcher?
You can also try to erase data. Go to settings / applications / all, look for the launcher, and delete data
commented by
What if I can't click settings cause of the apps crashing...the only thing I can click is OK
commented by
Thank you. This worked. I also cleared the data

while phone launcher can unfortunately stopped working don't worry about that...

1.First you do not put no launcher of unknown resources of downloading play store in launcher.

2.Any launcher can you use that affect a in built of phone launcher.

3.Do not download the android launcher on play store it has take to much of ram and battery

4.use only the phone launcher.

4.avoid useless application .

5.then restart your phone .

6.your phone works properly.

I've done all the above & I factory reset once, and it worked okay for a little then the launcher started crashing again and so did the mobile ID app. So I F.A. again and it was cool again for a bit then started doing the same thing again. I'm not sure if I should do factory reset a 3rd time or just turn it in to assurance wireless...I think I'll do both. Stupid cheap phones.. . Stupid Obama phones....no wonder they'really free cuz this cap keepso happening...!
commented by
The clear data did worked for my Gionee f103.
Thanks a lot
commented by

2. Touch "Applications" (or "Application Manager").
3. Touch "All" (or "Display system applications").
4.Select "Launcher"
5. On the next screen tap the "Force stop" button and the "Clear Data" and " Clear Cache" button  

If the problem of not being able to download or update persists:
