After my Droid Bionic upgraded to ICS, most of the text and numbers displayed in each of my widgets appear scrambled. I have Calendar, WeatherBug, SportsTap, and a stocks widget up and running.The Calendar app sometimes appears normal, but the rest all have scrambled text and numbers.
I've changed wallpapers multiple times, both regular and Live, with no effect. I have also rebooted numerous times, in which the widget texts appear normal afterwards, but eventually become scrambled again.
Anyone else experiencing this?
Have you tried clearing the system cache and/or uninstalling and reinstalling the apps? A system cache after an OS update is useful since it clears out any leftover code from the previous OS; it won't delete any of your files.
Clear system cache
Power down phone
Hold volume up/down & power simultaneously
Use volume down to navigate to 'Recovery', use volume up to select
Should see screen with triangle and exclamation point next to an Android
Press volume up/down simultaneously
Use volume rocker to navigate to 'wipe cache' and use power button to select
Once finished, use volume rocker to navigate to 'reboot system now' and use power button to select
I performed the Clear System Cache as you recommended. All was good at first, but after a few hours it acted up again and cannot see the text in the widgets.
Not sure if it's related, but during this last time I unlocked the screen to check, there were 4 white vertical bands (where the apps normally sit) on the screen. After a few seconds and swiping the right and left to see if the apps on the other pages are blanked out (they were as well), the apps re-appear. This is also when the widget texts are now scrambled again.
