    I'm glad to see that other people are having this problem on stock droids as well. Mine was working fine on P3Droid's froyo leak but stopped working as soon as in installed JRummy's Kangrenade froyo rom. when i did a wipe and restore back the old one and it was still broken I got pretty mad. At least now I dont have to be mad a JRummy anymore...

    Does anyone know details about how this app works? I wonder what failed "network " the error message is referring to?

    Afraid as soon as I post here it may stop working (love this widget) but I am using Jrummy's Kang in Fort Riley, KS with no issues be it on WiFi or 3g.

    Mine hasn't been able to update since 6/15. That's the date on all news and weather articles. I'm running rooted 2.2 on a Moto Droid.

    I just received a new (referb actually) from my Asurion insurance plan for a lost/stolen phone yesterday.

    I just tried the news weather and its not working now either. Stock 2.1 not rooted. On my previous droid it was working... but that was two days ago when I lost it.

    Soooo, how do we report problems like this to google/verizon? I'm sure they know about it, but is possible that they don't.

    Thanks,

    ben

    Alright, it's not a Froyo or Google issue. Palmary, the provider of the back end that the widget uses is under a DDoS attack.

    Recent News

    Note the most recent entry. Looks like those affected will just have to wait it out sadly.

    2 stock Droids in Baltimore having server errors too. This sucks worse than the Orioles! Looking forward to this app coming back online.

    I just asked a VZW tech friend of mine if there were any known outages with the news/weather widget. His response was we don't support apps, so we don't do alerts for them.

    Hopefully the issue works itself out soon.
