Live Tiles problem after Windows Phone 7.8 update
If you own a Nokia smartphone and recently installed the new Windows Phone 7.8 update then please read on because you can help us verify this new problem with Live Tiles getting stuck. It seems that a few owners of Nokia devices are experiencing a little bug since installing Windows Phone 7.8.
Over on the Windows Phone Central Forums one member called neyouk reports that after installing the Windows Phone 7.8 update live tiles are ceasing to update, basically meaning they are getting stuck. So we looked into this a little more and asked a few of our friends in the UK who own Nokia Lumia phones if they are having the same problem, and after asking 6 friends they said “NO” they are not having issues.
So now is the time to dig a little deeper, we got a message via one of our Google+ followers and they sent us a link to WMPoweruser, one of their authors named Paul Katz reports that he updated his Lumia 900 to Windows Phone 7.8 and since doing so it has crippled his app live tiles one by one and now they are all frozen.
Is this a problem in the USA only and not the UK? We have no idea and that is why we are calling out to Nokia Lumia owners who have installed the latest Windows Phone 7.8 update, please come forward and let us know if your Live Tiles are getting stuck?
To be better safe than sorry we suggest all Nokia Lumia owners staying on Windows Phone 7.5 and waiting for confirmation that all is well with the 7.8 update.
We have already mentioned previously about the Nokia Lumia 800 having problems with the volume control after updating to Windows Phone 7.8, if this happened to you please let us know if all is well now or if you are still having issues?
