    Hey guys. I have a weird problem when accessing the context long-press menu in my 720's app list. I'm using the Dark theme and the long-press menu's text and background are also dark, which poses a problem with reading the menu item itself.

    I have attached a screenshot of the above problem. If you look closely, you can see the menu items on top of the apps icons. A simple reboot fixes the problem but it will appear again sometime later. Have any of you guys encountered this problem?

    I know right? :(

    Now I can confirm that it happens in WiFi menu too.

    Hard reset will most likely fix that.

    Yes, as I said in the first post, a simple reboot fixes it. But it will happen again after a while. Just wondering what is the root cause for this. For now I've stopped running Bing Weather and Insider Pro to see if those apps are causing this problem.

    Okay, I noticed that the dark menu background happens after playing Ace of Luftwaffe. I've uninstalled the game and so far the issue hasn't happened for more than a day now. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Guys, it seems that the problem still persists for my phone. I have tried hard reset but the dark menu background still happens. :(

    Does anyone have a clue what is causing this problem?

    Does it happen again with the game Ace of Luftwaffe installed? If uninstalling the game fixes the issue, then its an app related bug n not OS related.

    I am mistaken because I thought it was due to Ace of Luftwaffe. but it actually was not. There might be something else that is causing this problem and I'm still figuring out what.
