    This started on 4.8 with ESPN Score Center.

    Now tonight while on 4.9 I installed "Scrollable ContactWidget" & "Super Battery" widget. Rebooted the phone, and after it came back up widgets were no longer on the screen nor was I able to add them again.

    Only uninstalling and reinstalling the entire App allows me to add the widgets again. But once I reboot, again they are gone.

    Any ideas or help? Is this a ROM issue?


    Update: Nevermind! 2 minutes after posting this I realized it was because these apps were installed on my SD card. Once I moved them to the phone, put them back on the screen and rebooted all was well. I guess typing it out got me thinking!

    Are they installed on the SD Card? If so, move them to internal memory.

    That's pretty odd. If they were on the SD card that is the problem for sure. Sorry, I've never had the problem except when they were on the SD card.

    So if you set them up.....then reboot right away, they are gone?

    What homescreen app are you using?

    Yeah, once I moved mine off the SD card they have all been working perfectly. Sorry I can't help anymore than that!

    Is it possible that it's a conflicting app?
    I think this problem presented when I installed "Car Dock Home" from the market.
    It also holds Widgets and they vanish when I reboot the phone.

    Can anyone test this?
