For the TouchWiz crash: "Unfortunately, Touchwiz has stopped", just disable Gestures in Parameters, no reboot needed. Works.

[Update 20 Nov 2016]
In your application manager under all, find TouchWiz home. Clear both cache and data. This will clear all of your home screens, so you have to restore the apps back, to your preferences.
