Troubleshooting: Clash of Clans village gets stuck on iOS 7 and 8

If you are looking for a way to load other village or start playing a new fresh one without losing data, just follow these simple steps (thank cossythisisart for sharing!)

  1. Connect your iOS device to PC/Mac and Backup it with iTunes.
  2. After finishing Backup, open Settins ~> General ~> Reset ~> Erase All Content and Settings ~> Erase.
    Factory Reset on iOS 8
  3. After resetting, choose Set up as New.
  4. Sign In with the account you want to load another/new village.
  5. Download Clash of Clans from App Store.
  6. Open game.
  7. If you want to load an existing village, press OK to load it.
    If you want to start playing, finish the opening tutorials and name your new village.
  8. Factory Reset your iOS device again, this time choose Restore from iTunes backup at starting.
    Restore iOS 8
  9. After finishing the restoration, go to Settings and Log Out of your current Game Center account immediately.
  10. Log in with the new Game Center to load the other village.
  11. Open Clash of Clans, when it asks to load the new village, just type CONFIRM to load!

I have tested this method on 2 devices running iOS 7 and 8 so I can confirm that It is working pretty nice!
