For the case of your Infinix phone displaying “Unfortunately XUI has stopped“, it is a normal malfunction (bugs) from XUI Infinix powered device. You don’t need to panic much whenever you see such message on your device screen, it happens in most apps.

Why does the message, Unfortunately XUI has stopped, shows?

It could be a system crash, a bug, insufficient operations to handle requests from installed apps or too many cached data on your device.

Insufficient operations to handle requests from installed apps?

This happens mostly especially when your Infinix software is still in test mode or its beta version. Here, your device is bound to experience  malfunctions as a result of not being equipped with maximum response.

Too many cached data  

This could be referred to as data overload. Stored data include settings, data, configurations and sometimes cached files.

Remember that Android launcher handles the interactivity in your device screen – Desktop, app drawers, widgets, folders and more.

The more your interactivity with the launcher, the more data it stores to itself. Some people will recommend that one should clear data and cache.

Steps to fix Unfortunately  XUI has stopped on Infinix?

Method 1 – Update Xlauncher

Open Play Store, then move over to your installed apps and check for available updates to see if Xlauncher has new update.
You can directly search for “Xlauncher on Play Store search but you will be amazed with different versions. If there is no new update, then move over to method 2.

Method 2 – Clear Xlauncher Data and Cache

Clearing your launcher or any app’s data and cache removes every trace of past activity from your device. It looks exactly just like it was when newly installed.
To do this, it is expected that you can now access your apps through Settings. You can possibly restart your phone.

Now, open Settings > App > ALL. Gently look for Xlauncher then open it. You have two options to clear Data or Cache. For this case, we clear the two. If none of this work for you, then check method 4
Method 3 – Hard Reset
We’re always worried to advise someone to hard reset one’s Infinix smartphones running Android 5 and later. Can you get why? You will definitely be stuck with either two or one hefty problems. They are;
  1. Google Account verification (This asks one to enter the email of last Google account that was used on the device)
  2. Privacy Protection Password (This also asks one to enter one’s privacy protection password which was earlier set up when registering the phone with the first SIM card).
We strongly believed that out of the above three methods, one will surely work for you. If you decide to hard reset, you are more likely to face Google Account verification process or Anti theft privacy protection password.
If you are bold enough to try hard reset, then you should either check my posts on
