    Slow afternoon at work so I have a few minutes...I have not unfrozen all my apps yet but I have tested these and these are NOT causing the problem. I am using the following to test:

    Unfreeze app
    Use home switcher app to go to default home
    Open drawer
    Press physical key

    Providing this list in case anyone else is trying the same thing, so you don't have to duplicate my efforts.

    AdService
    Apps
    Backup Assistant (all 4 related apps)
    Device Setup
    Emergency Alerts
    Guided Tours
    Help Center
    MotoCast
    MotoCast ID
    My Uploads
    Universal Inbox
    V CAST Tones
    Verizon Location Agent
    Verizon Video

    Edit: this is annoying Defrosting all apps to determine what default action should be!

    Defrosted all apps using a batch command. Rebooted. Used Home Switcher to go back to default home. Opened app drawer, pressed key. Force close.

    Seems to be a stock issue? Or else it happened during the rooting process?

    Glad to hear that I didn't uninstall something critical here, bummer that it doesn't seem to be app related. Anyone else able to reprodice this issue, maybe somone not rooted?

    Are you pressing the search key? If so then it's a GB blur thing. The Pro and X also do it.

    I'm not sure about the OP but I was able to FC com.motorola.home by pressing any key on the physical keyboard.

    Yeah any physical key does it for me. Potential stock issue? It's not really a big deal, just a bit annoying knowing it happens.

    Yeah, I think when you do that it opens the search stuff which then FCs.

    I have all apps on the OP list frozen & I'm running into 2 problems.

    1st is an app called zumo service that is force closing at random. It doesn't seem to impact the OS, but I'd like to try to figure out what it is and why it's crashing.

    2nd is that my gmail is not auto synching. I have to go into the app & force a sync to see the latest emails.

    Any ideas what needs unfrozen or changed?

    I guess the problem must be with the search app then because pressing the magnifying glass touch key causes the FC as well. So it makes sense that a physical key press would throw the same error, normally this brings up a search bar like when on the homescreen. Interesting

    even worse, if you freeze imscserver 1.0, you lose the use of cellular data. I found that out last night when I was away from my usual wifi spots; couldn't get on the internet until I defrosted it. phone calls worked, though. note that you have to reboot the phone after freezing/defrosting imscserver before it takes effect.
