nexus 4 settings changing
« on: July 15, 2013, 07:08:33 AM »
Hi all, i'm new here, i've had a brief look for the answer to my question and didn't find anything so please excuse me if the question has been asked before.

Basically, My Nexus 4 seems to be changing settings by itself from time to time.
For instance today it changed language. I did think that perhaps I had left the keylock off, but considering the language it chose, it wasn't as if my leg had knocked against something on the first page, it would have required quite a large amount of scrolling.

Also on a number of occasions it decides to turn on the GPS, even though i've turned off the location access in my settings menu.

Lastly, the clock settings often change from digital to analogue (12 hour clock)

has anyone had any of these problems? or know how to fix them other than restoring the phone to factory settings and hoping for the best.

Thanks for the help

Are you sure it's not an application you've installed? Try booting into safe mode and see if it still happens...

Long press power for power menu> long press "Power off" and boot to safe mode. Safe mode boots your device without the data partition so 3rd party applications won't be active.

If that doesn't work, then think about a FDR.
