    Her all,

    My widgets stopped updating and rebooting doesn't help. Before a factory reset what else can I do and where else can I look for potential solutions.

    I searched these forums and Google for an answer for two days off and on and found only one article related and no solution in that article.

    Thank you for your help in advance!

    Do you use greenify or a similar app to hibernate processes?

    I'm not even sure what that is. Maybe...?

    -I can verify I don't have those now. What else?

    Hi Jmarkey, did you just do the factory reset? I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and started having the same issues...none of my widgets will update! After your "wiping the device" is everything resolved? Any flare ups?

    Yup, just did a factory reset. Only issue was resetting all my defaults like what opens when I click a link and so on, nothing unexpected. If you have any data you don't want to lose drop it off in Dropbox.
