    Hi all. I have a small issue with widgets..

    I'm currently on APEX launcher and cm9. When i put any widgets on the home screen that auto update, they do work ok for a short while, but then stop. for instance, a clock widget will work for a 10 minutes maybe, but then stick.

    I don't use any a task killer
    any suggestions?

    Hi Carlo

    What device are you using? It appears that maybe this question will be better place at a specific device forum. I can move it for you if you let me know which device.

    Thanks Carlo.

    Darn, the sg 7.7 forum isn't too active so let me see what I can find. While I do that, can you tell me where you downloaded your ROM? And can you make sure that your ROM doesn't have a built-in task manager because I know some Galaxy tab CM9 ROMs utilizes the touchwiz task manager.

    Not sure if you should disable the task manager you just need to make sure not to kill the widget app if you do decide to clear RAM. Are you using the latest ROM, 8/8/12 version? Which widget app are you using?
