I've already searched this issue and tried to tackle it myself, but can't find a solution. I'd rather not do a full wipe and re-install, but will if I have to.
I have an original droid (obviously) and a few weeks ago, I did a full wipe and installed Chevy's SS5.2 with a low voltage 1.2 gHz kernel. It ran fine and I never had any widget issues, but I had to underclock it down to about 800mHz in order for it to not get hot (and even then it would consistently run in the 40-45C range if I was doing a lot on it). I figured it might run a bit cooler if I installed the 800 mHz kernel and just ran it at full speed. Normally when I would install a new kernel, I would clear cache, clear dalvik, and install the kernel and reboot. For whatever reason, I didn't clear the dalvik this time and installed the kernel. I noticed that my Beautiful widgets clock wasn't updating unless I rotated the screen and basically forced a refresh and it was accurate, but the next minute change didn't update the clock again.
Things that I've tried:
- reset ADW launcher from the ADW settings
- wiped dalvik cache through Chevy Tools
- rebooted to recovery, wiped cache, wiped dalvik, reinstalled the 800 mHz kernel
- checked to make sure all the widgets are installed on the phone and not the SD card
- checked to make sure the widgets weren't located on any of the other home screen programs that came with SS
- checked to make sure Keep Home in Memory is still clicked
- temporarily put the BW clock onto the Sony Erikson home app and it updates fine, so it's definitely an ADW thing.
It's strange that this never happened when I was running the 1.2g kernel. Should I just go back to my nandroid of that and stick with the 1.2 running at 8 or does anyone have any more suggestions for getting it to work with this setup
