Recently here at Windows Phone Central we have received several requests for help through our app from users whose Live Tiles have stopped updating, including our own . Previously, our application had bugs that caused its tile to crash, but when all the live tiles on the device that use background tasks get stuck, a big problem arises.

Up to this point, I have not been able to reproduce the problem myself, so I have tried my best to help those of you who ask us for a solution. Despite luck though my Lumia 800 tiles recently stopped updating at all (except for updates via push notifications) and after a simple reboot of the phone it didn’t help and I have a solution to share with you all.
