    Hi,
    Every time I remove USB disks some 3rd pard apps crash. (maildroid pro, beautiful widget pro and swiftkey).
    I have mi2s with latest multilang.
    I tried to wipe (with CMR) and cleanly reinstall everything from the beginning, but nothing :(
    Someone has my some problem???

    yes, you are not alone
    my otg cable arrived today and i faced the same problem, in my case swiftkey was force closing (i don't have the other apps you mention)

    Yeeep :) finally i got a feedback... I've been reporting this bug in all the miui forums.
    Hope to find a solution soon!

    after some searching, this seems to be a common issue (at least for swiftkey i found 5 different threads/bug reports) with other roms/devices and even on stock roms, so i guess it's not miui's fault, restarting is the only solution

    Really? Could you post these threads please?
    I will write to the developer to deepen the matter

    Same problem with business calendar pro, endomondo pro, jump rdp and more. I see all this apps are stored in /mnt/asec

    Thank to marios for the references!

    It seems that crashing when you unplug OTG devices is a known bug in JB 4.1 (and related roms) which should be fixed in 4.2 kernels...

    After some investigation I see that apps stored in /mnt/asec are paid apps, like business calendar pro and swiftkey. It seems that miui ROM cannot mount asec partition after umount USB storage. My Acer iconia with jb 4.1.2 and same paid apps in asec partition doesn't have this issue...

    This is a possible workaround: http://www.modaco.com/topic/361776-xmod-disable-play-store-encryption-mntasec/
