Files app won't open. It always crashes in Oreo 8.1

2018-11-11, 13:30 PM

Since I updated my Moto G5 PLus to Oreo, I can't use the 'Files' app:

 

 

 

It will never open.

 

It is not a big problem if I want to navigate the files, because I can use other apps. The problem comes when I am using a form from a webpage or another app tries to open it to share media.

 

Has anyone this problem too ??

Hi Fighter42,

 

This is unexpected after an update. We'd like to eliminate the likelihood that a rogue app is messing with your phone. Please test in safe mode. To go into Safe Mode, press the physical power key, then press and hold the pop-up "Power off" key until the Safe Mode instructions pop up. Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,
JM

I am so sorry for the late answer!!

 

I have restarted in safe mode and the Files App is working! However, I started to see the error when I updated to Oreo.

 

How can I know the app that is doing this ??
