Also battery cycling was a tried and tested method, but it doesn't do anything but kill your battery anymore. Don't do it seriously.
Did you clean your USB ports? I would never try it with the old micro slots, but USB C is made of sturdier stuff.
Would you mind taking a screenshot of the menu ?
"Go to settings>apps>"app">storage"
I described this exact method in my second solution and as I said neither Android Systems nor USBSystems is showing up under the apps in UI 4.1. I suspect both of these have been removed from the app list or renamed. Either way, I am assuming the only other option called "Android System Intelligence" is the new "Android Systems". Where does that get me, well nowhere actually because the cash can not be cleared from this app and neither can I force stop it. Yes I have checked the system apps and neither of the apps are there.
Yes the old UI had the exact solution you described.
I have cycled the battery twice out of necessity, I can no turn on the phone otherwise. It is absolutely not a hardware issue.
Thanks for your help
Of clearing system cache? You need to boot into the recovery. Should work the same way I think. Power off completely, hold "volume ±" and "power" until you see the first android screen. Immediately let go of the power button, while keeping a finger on volume.
You'll see a menu here. Wipe the cache and you could boot up from here, but you should instead use "Repair apps". This will boot up with app optimization that happens after every update. Galaxy Guardians App Booster is actually just this, app optimization while phone is on btw.
This cache you're wiping is not the individual caches of your apps, but it's just as harmless. If my phone starts acting funky, it's one of my first responses.
I don't know if I would be looking to force stop Android System honestly. It's package name is just "Android" on my S21 Ultra. Apps like that on debloat lists usually get marked with "DANGEROUS DO NOT TOUCH".
But if you're really looking to try it and you aren't afraid of fixing a possible brick, then the choice is clear. Use ADB. You can even do it wirelessly now, with something like Tasker you can log into ADB of your phone, from your phone.
I really do recommend studying the package names before committing to mess with anything. I don't even do this and I know how, but some people like to mess around a little more. 🤷:male_sign:
And Android System Intelligence has nothing to do with this. That's more linked to notification actions and the newer actions that Android gives you for automatic copying of parts of a message. I suppose Android System might have gotten rolled into Android OS? I'm pretty sure package name "android" didn't just get deleted lol
Jun 15th and the problem still exists.....to the best of my knowledge no moisture has not gotten into my phone, none of the "tricks" as far as clearing cache or charging phone wirelessly till full, using a hairdryer set on cool etc etc are working its been 48 hrs and still getting the moisture detected error
