    This thread explains why Amazing Weather HD stopped updating my lockscreen/live tile.

    It's sad to learn that MS is doing nothing to fix this bug (looks like it's from the old WP7 days). One of the biggest selling points of WP* phones are the live tiles and it's unfortunate that they haven't done anything regarding this issue.

    I'm losing confidence in this platform. No notification center for GDR2, no VPN and no confirmation on system wide orientation lock or custom Volume levels (some of the most voted features on the official suggestion site). I know it's "coming" but when (WP 8.1 which is coming Q1 of next year) ? If i were MS and i want to get a strong hold on the market i would ship those most requested features like yesterday.


    sorry for the rant.

    I noticed my live tiles stop working after a soft reset. To get them working again I have to uninstallmy weather app a few times and clear my internet history.

    My live tiles stopped updating since 2 weeks ago. I had 34 apps under Background task. Deleted 10 of them. Let only 7 of them to allow background task.
    Deleted IE History, did soft reset. Now, I'm waiting whether these changes have any effect on my Lumia 920

    i'm just posting this because my live tiles all stopped working and I found it a bit hard to get them to work again. I was very close to hard resetting my phone but read a few threads including this one which I think got it to work. This is what I think made it work:

    • uninstall all apps that have a background task enabled (not blocked)
    • clear IE history
    • Soft reset - vol down and power.
    • re-install apps and pin


    I say "I think" because the only thing I'm not sure is if after the soft reset I did a normal reboot and that's what kicked off the live tiles to start working again. I was playing around trying different things and I'm pretty sure what I did as noted above is what worked, but another thread (http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ight-help.html) says doing a normal reboot is what kicks it off and I can't remember if I did that or not cause I did was trying all sorts of things at the time.

    Anyway I hope this helps others. I did find one of the apps I reinstalled then got blocked which I assume is because of a bug so i'm wondering if that's what stopped the tiles form updating in the first place.

    I just wanted to put my 2 cents in here. My tiles and lock screen had stopped updating within the last week. There didn't seem to be any reason for so I did a search in these forums. The solution Alex Rodriguez Jr. gave absolutely worked for me. I went into the Advanced menu under Background tasks, picked about 7 or 8 apps that were in there that I don't really use that much, and deleted them. Within about 5 hours they were all working again. Definitely give this a shot if you're just finding this thread!
