    Alright I need some help again. Heres the problem: Whenever I install a new rom, no matter what it is, my phones settings dissappear and it wont allow me to add widgets. Right now I just have the stock froyo rom, but I want to change it. Whats the problem here?

    I can understand the settings being cleared (wiping and reactivating) but I have no clue why the stock widgets disappear.

    Typically, a kernel that is too fast or not compatible causes FC's as do task killers. Are you using either?
