How to fix “Unfortunately Google Partner Setup has Stopped”?

There are pretty high chances that you came across the term ‘Google Partner Setup’ because of a recurring error that keeps popping on the screen and reads “Unfortunately Google Partner Setup has stopped”.

The error can be pestering since it hinders a lot of apps and services from functioning properly, especially if they require some sort of access to information stored in your Google account.

Since the error is rooted in something to do with your Google account information, you will most probably get the error to stop popping up and obstructing functionality on your device using the first method discussed below.

However, if custom ROM and rooting of the phone laid the foundation for the problem, the second is most likely to solve the problem once and for all.

Method 1: Clear Data and Cache

This solution has been proven to work multiple times when users are suffering from the “Google partner setup has stopped” error message on their device. The data and cache of the service need to be clear before the service can be started again.

To clear data and cache for Google Partner Setup, follow the steps below:

  • Visit Settings on your device.
  • The settings menu has an option named ‘Apps’ or ‘Applications’. Tap on it.

Note: The part following the last step varies between the devices. Generally speaking, you will need to find the Google Partner Setup service in the Applications section in your device’s Settings. This can either be done by tapping on ‘show system processes’, ‘show all apps’, etc. If you have knowingly or unknowingly hidden the service from your device, you should also check the ‘show hidden apps’ section by tapping on the menu button.

  • Now find Google Partner Setup by scrolling down the list of apps or navigating to it using the search bar, if there is one provided under Applications > Show all apps (varies, depending on the device). Tap on Google Partner Setup.
  • Next, tap on Storage. Immediately next, tap on ‘Clear Data’ as well as ‘Clear Cache’.
  • Once you have cleared the data and the cache, reboot your device.

This method of clearing data and cache works effectively on almost every application/service that is causing errors on your device.

However, if the error still persists, move on to the next method.

Method 2: Factory Reset your Device

If clearing data and cache do not work, and the error still persists, factory resetting your device is possibly the last resort you have.

Since a factory reset wipes all your data and your phone is restored back to the state it was before you unboxed it (and before the error hit your device), it is important to back up all your essential data.

Once you have created a backup for your data, make sure your phone is at least 70% charged since a factory reset can take upto an hour. Any hindrance, while the phone is being factory reset can cause further issues in the phone.

Next, follow the steps below to factory reset your device (the steps can vary a little based on your device):

  • Go to Settings on your device.
  • Next, go to ‘Backup and Reset’ and tap on ‘Factory data reset’.
  • Now tap on ‘Reset Device’ and then ‘Erase Everything’.
  • If you are prompted to enter your password, do it, and the process will begin immediately.
  • Once the process is complete, reboot your device and restore your device using the backup you created. The error should be gone by now.

Method 3: Install A Stock ROM

Note: This method is only applicable if you have a custom ROM installed on your device. 

It is possible that the error message on the Google Partner Setup is occurring due to the rooting of your phone. If you have recently installed a custom ROM on your phone, post which you are facing the error “Unfortunately Google Partner setup has stopped”, it is possible that custom ROM is the root of the problem.

If such is the case, we advise installing the stock ROM on your device to tackle the error “Unfortunately Google Partner Setup has stopped.”

Below we have mentioned three ways you can install a Stock ROM on your device:

Flash a Stock ROM

If you’re planning on Flashing a Stock ROM, you’ll need to do a factory reset along the way, so backup and restore your data if you haven’t already.

The plus point is that flashing a Stock ROM makes the whole transition of going from custom ROM to Stock ROM easier. Besides, if you are in luck, you may be able to find a pre-rooted version of the ROM.

The inconvenience with flashing a Stock ROM, however, is that you will need to be dependent on someone to create the Stock ROM for your device. The Stock ROMs for devices vary to great lengths, which means if you have a lesser-known device, finding a Stock ROM for the same might be harder for you to find.

In case you use a phone that is already popular, chances are you will easily find a Stock ROM for the same on the XDA Developers forum.

If you use a OnePlus device, then you can directly download the Stock ROM provided by the official One Plus website to revert to stock.

How to Flash a Stock ROM

Here is how you can flash Stock ROM on your device:

  • Navigate to the XDA Developers Forum and find the forum created for your device. On the top of development boards, you can often find Stock ROMs in stickied posts, more so if your device’s forum is an active one.
  • Once you have found the Stock ROM, download it and backup all your data (since the method requires a factory reset).
  • Boot into recovery and select ‘Wipe’ to factory reset your phone. Swipe the bar to begin.
  • Once you have begun the recovery process, tap on ‘Install’ from the recovery home screen and then navigate to the Stock ROM you downloaded to flash onto your device.
  • Again swipe the bar on the screen to begin the installation of the Stock ROM.
  • Once finished, you can reboot your phone.
  • Skip this method if you downloaded a pre-rooted Stock ROM. For non-rooted ROM, relock the bootloader if you wish to restore the stock completely. Keep in mind that this will wipe your phone.

Restore a Nandroid Backup

Nandroid backup is the fastest way to get your phone back to its original state. It shouldn’t result in any data loss if you have an up-to-date Nandroid backup available for your device.

A full system backup is created in the recovery for the Nandroid backup. Every time you install a mod or flash a new ROM, you should create one. It’s the first tool you should use if you ever need to unbrick your phone.

Your phone’s operating system, apps, data, and everything else are snapshots of your phone in a Nandroid backup. Therefore, restoring it also restores the ROM you used at the time. If you have a backup that you created using the Stock ROM before rooting your device, you are set.

It’s only a short-term option if you use a Nandroid backup to return to stock. If you back up your data, you will be able to see that apps you have removed will reappear and text messages you received will disappear. If your backup is only a few days old, you might want to keep it for emergencies.

How to Restore a Nandroid Backup

  • Boot your phone into custom recovery. It is advisable to use TWRP for custom recovery of your android device.
  • Tap on ‘Restore’. Following this, you will have a list of backups available.
  • Pick a backup that was created using the Stock ROM.
  • Now you will be prompted to select the partitions you wish to restore. On a usual note, this means you will need to check all the boxes from the list available.
  • Now, swipe the bar that says ‘Swipe to Restore’. After a while, you will be able to reboot your device.
  • This should be enough to get you running on the Stock ROM gain. However, to complete the process, we recommend opening the SuperSU app on your android device, followed by opening Settings on your device. Tap on ‘Select Full Unroot’ then reboot your device again to unroot it.

If you want to, you can relock your bootloader as well. The way you do this will be different between devices. Using the fastboot flashing lock with Fastboot, you can easily relock your bootloader.

The device is completely wiped away by relocking the bootloader. If you need to send your phone for a warranty repair or sell it, you should do it; otherwise, you can skip it if you want to.

Flash a Factory Image

If nothing else works, and you want to get your phone back to stock, you will need to flash a factory image. It will bring your phone back to the way it was before you unboxed it. After that, your device will be completely factory fresh if you lock the bootloader

Many device manufacturers don’t release factory images because they come directly from the device manufacturers. You may need to download factory images from third-party sites if you want to get them.

Where they’re available, they’re more difficult to install than either of the other methods. Some of them may require the usage of their own software, and some, on the other hand, may require a manual approach, using command lines with ADB or Fastboot tools.

If you need to completely change your device, flashing a factory image is the best option. If you’ve bricked your device, and there’s no other way to fix it, it’s the nuclear option as well, despite all the hurdles you may face when using this method.

How to Flash a Factory Image

The step-by-step procedure to flash a factory image on one android device differs widely from the others. You may need to look up the detailed procedure online if you are not through with it.

Below we have mentioned the steps to be followed for flashing a factory image on Pixel devices:

  • Since this method requires the usage of the company’s software (in the case of Samsung and HTC) or command lines using tools, download and set up the ADB and Fastboot tools.
  • From the android website, download the factory image of your device and unzip it on your desktop or laptop.
  • Next, use a USB to connect your rooted phone.
  • Boot into Fatboot mode and launch the Command Prompt or the Terminal app on your desktop.
  • Once in the terminal, use the command flash-all.bat if you are using Windows and flash-all.sh on MacOS or Linux.
  • Wait for the method to run its course before you can reboot.
  • Now, reboot your device, and this will take you back to the unrooted and stock ROM on your device, equipped with stock recovery. Next, lock the bootloader, and your device should go back to normal with the error “Unfortunately Google Partner Setup has stopped working” eliminated once and for all.

Note: Make sure to read the information provided on the forums carefully. If you don’t follow the instructions, installing the ROM can be dangerous.

Once you are back and running on your Stock ROM, the error “Unfortunately Google Partner Setup has stopped” should be fixed.
