    So I got Task Panel X for me Hero and i've been trying to play aroudn with it. But ever since I got it, the weather part of HTC's flip clock widget has been messing up. It just shows a blank, no weather. Whenever I turn off the Task Panel X, it stops messing. Does anyone know how to make Task Panel X not stop the weather on the clock app? Everything about the app works fine except this. Thanks

    I use Task Panel X and my weather shows up fine. I also have "clock" in my ignore list.

    I figured it out. When either Peep, Stock, or Footprints is on the Wanted list and then auto-killed, the weather disappears from my clock widget.

    As a matter of fact, if you open any one of these, then open TPX, and manually kill it, the weather will disappear when you press home and look at your click widget.

    Try it for yourself:
    1) Open Peep
    2) Click Home
    3) Open TPX
    4) Kill peep (tap on it from the main list)
    5) Click Home (or go to whichever home screen the clock widget is on)
    6) Wait 2-3 seconds. Weather will become blank.

    If someone could confirm this, it would make me feel better... it would suck if this is the case for only MY Hero...

    Yep, me too. The weather came back after a few seconds though.

    Yeah, it does come back... it's not good forever (whew)
    but still, it does get a little annoying, wouldnt you think so?
    I just put those 3 apps in my Ignore list... since I dont even really use them anyways.
    Can yuo imagine how long it took me to figure out it was those 3 that were causing the problem! I was sitting there... opening apps 1 by 1... closing them to see if the messed up the weather...
    I am very proud of my discovery :)

    Had the same issue. Solved it by adding footprints to the ignore list. Hope that helps!

    you mean, the non-flipping flip-clock right? the sprint version doesn't flip or did you guys find a way to get a flippable clock?
