1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Title sums it up. Recently, a folder appeared in my gallery called "cache". In it are 4 files:
    2206smaller-background
    435smaller-background-land-wide
    2352background
    4460background-land-wide

    The numbers that start the files seem to change every time I delete them and restart the phone - as does the creation time and date. Almost as if the phone is creating these files rather than them being old ghost files i can't delete.

    I have deleted the gallery cache but that had no effect.

    The phone shows that the location of the folder is "unknown". I keep deleting the files and the folder and they just keep coming back.

    I have searched for these files all over the phone and SD card to no avail. They are not in my picasa account nor do I have a clue where they came from.

    Someone on the motorola owners forum solved my problem. Beautiful widgets was responsible. The solution is below....


    Go into Astro (install if you don't have it)
    Choose the folder "Data"
    Choose the folder "beautifulwidgets"
    Choose the folder "cache"
    Then CREATE a folder called .nomedia in that folder (make certain you place a period before nomedia with no space)
