    Since updating to 7.8 on my HTC Radar c110e the BBC News Mobile live tile has stopped updating. Uninstalling the app and reinstalling it has not solved the issue. I am also having the same problem with the WPCentral live tile and Facebook live tile.

    Quick update here. Now my tiles that are updated by background agents seem to be working just fine. Tiles that use push are still broken though. The funny thing is that toasts are still working just fine. So for apps that have both tile and toast notifications, the toasts come in but the tile still won't update. That kind of goes along with what Jay posted in the front page article.

    Here's an interesting investigation from Heathcliff, creator of WP7 Root Tools (found via WMPowerUser):
    WP7 Root Tools - Unleash the power of Windows Phone - Bad live-tiles - The saga continues

    Basically he confirms that something is very wrong with WP7.8 live tiles, and that it's pretty much up to MS to fix it.

    I have a LG Optimus 7 (Free) in Portugal, two days after the update to 7.8, most of my live tiles stop working and became static, Accuweather, XE currency, The daily beast...and so on, the only ones that still work are Engadget and WPCentral. After a Hard reset and reinstall, the problem presists.
    And my music tile dont have live tile either.

    So as far as I can tell, MS hasn't even acknowledged the issue here. Does anyone know of any communications channel that MS is listening to, so we can make sure that somebody there knows about it? Or are we 7.8 users left in the dust?

    This is starting to hurt app developers too. I'm seeing bad reviews on some apps complaining that the live tiles don't work on 7.8, even though it's not the developers' fault.

    I have this issue on a Lumia 900 on ATT. I expected it to be more widespread as I am a very average user, top 50 apps probably. Who should I go to? ATT, Nokia or Microsoft? Thanks.

    This is happening to my 3rd party tiles. They worked for a few days after 7.8 update but have since frozen. This is a fundamental feature of this OS and its broken. Unbelievable.

    Hidden Pineapple (developers of Rowi) have been retweeting users all day who fixed this issue by pinning the Bing Translator tile. You guys can check it out on their Twitter @rowiapp

    I got an update for the 'Breaking News' app which until now never had live tiles. Well now it does, and it was obviously compiled for 7.8 as it supports double wide tiles, but more interesting is that live tiles work for this app.

    As I suspected Microsoft is going to expect all developers to recompile their apps for 7.8 and use reflectance for updating Live Tiles. Absolutely incredible that they would allow this to break so badly for old apps.

    sigfrid,
    I opened this thread in the Microsoft official support forum:

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...c-8e0e62295236

    Please have a look, posts comments and/or click "me too". Microsoft has to do something if so many people have this problem.

    Cheers

    Everyone needs to go and reply to that thread. Microsoft needs to realize they've dropped the ball on this one.

    Thank you very much , I'll contribute to that thread too, I hope in a fast and reliable solution from MS. What I can say is that after the reset the phone is working good, although I've installed only few apps until now...

    Per WMPU, MS has acknowledged the problem!

    Microsoft acknowledges WP 7.8 Live Tile issues, may release a fix | WMPoweruser

    Apparently they are considering an update. Uh, thanks?

    Hi there,
    Have you received last update ? In my opinion the problem is completely solved, now all my live tiles work and the start screen is so fast as in 7.5, I'm really satisfied :)
