    Hello friends!

    I'm having an issue since the last couple of weeks where some of my live tiles are not updating. I'm on a Lumia 800 with the 8662 build of the 7.8 OS. All of these apps have background tasks enabled and the settings within the app show that they are enabled.

    Some of these apps are Wikipedia by Rudy Huyn, Vevo, Cracked, Crackled and MetroTube.

    All of my other apps seem to be working fine.

    Do any of you have any ideas?

    Much Love!

    I recommend unpinning/repinning the tiles. Also, there is a known issue with 7.8 (to clarify, that issue was supposedly fixed in build 8862) that prevents some live tiles from updating.

    Thank you but I already tried all of that. Even reinstalling.

    The version of 7.8 that had the live tile bug was 8858, that was fixed in 8862. But thanks anyway. ;)

    Hmm. Do you have consistent access to the internet? Also, do you know how often they are supposed to update?

    I have Internet access. I can't be sure but I believe those tiles use the background agent that updates every 30 minutes.

    EDIT: I seem to have found a solution for most of these apps... It seems to me that they got messed up because I had set previously the date on my phone to another date in the future to do the trick for the game Monster Burner so when I set it back to the correct time some tiles got confused. I changed the date back and forth a few times and that seems to have fixed it for all of these apps except for Wikipedia. At least now I feel more calm about it. Thanks anyway! :)

    I'm stumped about this. Try contacting the devs to see if they can fix the problem.
