  4. Hi,

    I have purchased Mi 3 Redmi Prime mobile, but I am getting this message while doing any activity in application. A message is coming randomly with few applications. E.g. Launcher, Contacts, Messaging, Setting.

    It is very irritating and not able to do any activity in mobile with this error.

    Message shows:

    “Unfortunately, Launcher has been stopped”.

    “Cancel” or “Report”

    Request you to advise on the same.

    For your information, I have updated MIUI 7 yesterday itself.

          1. Hi grprajapat,

            Can you mention the steps which are to be followed to clear the data??

            What does wipe reset means?? If I have done this, then will my phone reset with all my data??

            FYI…… I have already done “cleaner” and “deep cleaner” in my phone by using “Security”.
