Samsung Galaxy S6 System UI stopped after update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

After you have downloaded the new firmware and installed it to the Samsung Galaxy S6, it may happen that the following errorappears in the app menu or while opening applications:

"System UI stopped“

This is a system process of the Android operating system. With a very high probability an old system file was not completely removed during the conducted firmware update, which now results in the error above.

1. Turn your Samsung Galaxy S6 completely off.

2. Then the following keys have to be pressed and hold at the same time:

  • Power On / Off
  • Volume +
  • home button

3. When the Samsung Galaxy S6 vibrates once, the power let the on/ off button go, but keep the other two buttonsof the key combination pushed until a small menu appears on the display.

4. Now select "Wipe cache partition" by using the volume down key.

5. With the Power On/ off button, the entry is selected and the process is started.

6. This usually takes only a few seconds. Then the previously displayed menureappears. Now choose the first entry with "Reboot system now" and executes the command again by pressing the Power button.
