Recent apps and home key stop working properly

Wed Jun 05, 2019 2:49 pm

Has anyone had their recent apps and home soft keys stop working properly? Some time ago they just stopped working properly for no reason.  The recent apps soft key started behaving just like the home key, and while the home key still brought back the home screen, long pressing the home key did nothing whereas it should have brought up google assistant. Nothing I could find could get them working properly again.

However, after the most recent firmware update they have gone back to normal, but I'm wondering how long they are going to stay that way.

On another BV9600, they are NOT working properly, but the phone hasn't been updated yet since it's rooted and has to be updated manually and re-rooted afterwards.

I came late to this one but yes, Factory Reset works. Although it's a shame since you have to set the phone all over again. Now with Google Accounts it's easier than ever, but still, it's a pain in the back...

I had that too once, what happened was that I accidentally turned on underwater mode but didnt choose a camera app.

Fixing it was as simple as turning underwater mode off(on) again, even though it didnt show as active
