ODK crashing/stuck

Hi,
My ODK automatically loads a form without letting me go to the home screen
to choose fill in a blank for, send form, get form etc. I am trying to get
out of the form that it is stuck in but even if I fill out all of the
answers and click save form & exit it goes back to the beggining to fill it
out again.

I am using ODK 1.2.1 & Android 4.2.1

Is there an update I should install or any clues as to what is causing this?

Thank you

Just to add a bit more information. It was working on Android 4.1 after
upgrading to 4.2.1 we started having this issue.

thanks
Bashir

Hmm ... are you launching an ODK Form
Shortcuthttps://groups.google.com/d/msg/opendatakit/RWFZJkTrVxU/FsUljeBGIGEJinstead
of running ODK directly? Or is ODK trying to reload the save points
from a previous crash?

HI, we are not running a shortcut or running from a previous crash. We
can't seem to finish or begin a survey of choice

Have you tried clearing the /odk/.cache/ ? Perhaps there's something in the
form itself that's causing it to crash?

After clearing the cache, try launching another form that you're sure that
works (something from the repo, perhaps?)

I have not seen the behavior you describe. Are you launching the
application by going to the Applications display and starting ODK Collect,
or did you set up a shortcut to launch it? Is the behavior different when
you launch from the Applications display? If so, you were likely using the
ODK Form Shortcut (as mentioned below). Drag the shortcut icon you were
using to the trash, then drag the app icon from the Applications display
onto your home page.

··· ----------------

Separately, I have noticed an unstable showing or hiding of functionality
that first appeared with the Admin-mode feature (1.2.2) (e.g., the various
buttons on the main screen, or the choices to save or ignore changes while
filling in a form). However, I haven't been able to isolate a reproduction
case for this yet. If you see that behavior, you may need to alter the
settings on the "Admin Settings" page to get all desired functionality back
(for example, I needed to uncheck and re-check the various checkboxes on
that settings screen). An alternative is to perhaps go to Settings /
Applications / Manage Applications / ODK Collect and choose "Clear App
Data". This will clear the server preferences and user preferences, so you
would need to re-enter those. But after doing so, the problems should also
go away.
