So far no luck reproducing this on my Android 4.4.4 device, currently upgrading my S6 to Android 6.

Will try with my Nexus5/Android 6 in the meantime.

This crash happens because when PreferenceActivity gets inflated, it tries to read the colorPrimary styling attribute (not the android:colorPrimary one), and since it could find it in the current theme, it throws an exception
