    This is a temporary fix. You won't have to reset or restart your phone. It has been working for me every time.
    If you are having an issue with your start screen where tiles doesn't appear, turn On and Off Airplane mode. Do it several times until the tiles come back. In my case, after 3 attempts, they come back to the start screen.

    Interesting, I have found letting it attempt it a few times then leave it. Then try again and sorted for a while.....

    Will try above next time. Why hasn't Ms released a bug list? And work around. This is a major issue and I am surprised they released this build knowing the start screen is screwed!

    For me changing from background to none and vice versa usually works just fine...

    If your phone has physical keys, just hit the search button, wait for Cortana home page to load and then hit back button.

    None of these work for me, I hit my camera button to turn it on, open task manager and close camera, repeat a few times and usually works. But none of this is reliable.

    I seems to be something with the extra tiles on screen. I'm not sure if it's just having an issue setting them up correctly or what but has seemed to fixed it for my 1020 and 1520 is to open up the settings and disable extra tiles on the start screen. Unpin almost everything leaving just very little on screen then re-enabling it and repining your tiles.

    If I could get to my start screen I would reduce the number!

    Looks like it doesn't matter what other process you start to get start screen. For me it's starting feedback app via hardware buttons, let out load completely, then hit the home button.

    Random thought: do people with this problem have IE tiles pinned to Start from WP8.1 or after restoring from a WP8.1 backup?

    Edit: nevermind, I unpinned all IE tiles, problem still recurs.

    I just radically reduced number of tiles and so far so god, not even a single loading issue in the last 24 hours or so...

    That's all I have on my start at the moment, around 70% tiles removed comparing to my standard setup...

    Great. I wonder if there was a 'bad tile' among the ones you removed, or if for some reason a large number of tiles is the problem. Personally I have about two screens worth of small tiles, and I still see the loading .. loading .. problem occur.

    It's hard to say really as I removed lot of them, I had around 4 to 5 screens and it is quite possible that problematic tile is among those removed tiles or it is simply related to number of tiles or combination of them, will try to slowly increase number of tiles in coming day, but for now I feeling really happy as I get rid of this annoying issue because I'm using this build on my primary device...

    I found that turning off and on several times would fix it. I have five pages of tiles.

    This has been working for me: Reduce the extra tiles in settings, as others have mentioned. Then, hold the volume down + power button for 5sec or so... and you'll see a split second image of what looks like the people hub for some reason, then the start screen comes up

    What worked for me. Removed all tiles, except those that fit onto one page. Removed all folders. Reboot. No more loading. Added tiles and folders back that I need. Three days no problems. Ymmv

    I have found another way if you want a temporary solution to sort the loading problem you need to press and hold the Cortana (search button) wait for the listening prompt and press the back button and repeat all this two or three times, this works every time so far, but when you reboot you will need to repeat this all over again.

    1. press and hold the Cortana (search) button when the screen is blank or says loading...
    2. wait for the listening prompt
    3. press the back button until you get back to your loading/blank screen
    4. repeat this two or three times in succession

    Works every time for me. Good Luck
