    Hey everyone

    I'm having a problem where I'll download a widget, such as HTC Sense Clock, and if I turn my phone off and on, the widget will disappear. If I have the widget on my home screen, there will be a box that says "Problem Loading Widget" in its place. The widget isn't on the list when I go to re-add it, but it's in my downloaded applications. I have to uninstall and reinstall it to make it work again.

    I have the problem with other widgets too, not just this one, like a silly minecraft widget one.

    Any help would be appreciated. I'm running a vanilla 2.2 rooted rom.

    Not really sure if bumping is allowed, but this isn't even close to the front page now, so...

    My experience has been that moving any app which has an associated widget to the SDCard causes the problem. I keep all those app on the phone.

    Hope this helps

    Correct, no app that uses a widget should be installed on SDCard.
