    Yes, It worked and I don't have this bug anymore.

    Did you follow the instruction EXACTLY as described? remember (You have to remove the SIM card) before you start doing the first step. then you have to put your device into SAFE MODE and there you insert the SIM card back again and restart the device.

    NOTE: to make sure you booted your device into SAFE MODE, you'll see on the screen lower

    left corner the words (SAFE MODE) if you didn't see it, that means you still didn't manage to boot your device into SAFE MODE.
