    Hmm. Okay.. good.. I'm not alone on this one. Happens 'every' time for me.

    Thanks, King!

    As far as I'm aware of, iWidgets check for updates once you boot up your phone. However, when you first boot up, and before you type in the passcode to unlock it, the phone does not connect to the wifi/data. Therefore, iWidgets cannot update. However, after a few minutes, the iWidget should refresh itself, and it should work. The solution to the problem would be navigating to the folder for your iWidget, and manually editing the update interval. I did this for the ASUS widget, and now I'm getting updates every 1 minute, so I never have to worry about respringing. The network connection stays connected after a respring, and the springboard refreshes, which is why the iWidget updates. Hope this helps! (BTW, I'm not very sure that this is exactly how it works, but to my understanding, this is how it works )

    thanks. But a refresh interval of 1 minute is a big battery drain. 15 min is reasonable. And this never happened on iOS 5 with same setup. Widgets would update immediately after power up. This is a new thing.

    I never use pass code either. So that's not it either. The widgets are designed to get data immediately on boot up. They don't have to wait for a principal refresh interval per my understanding.

    Thanks for musing over the issue for me though!

    I've never seen that issue.
    I just tried twice. Once a reboot and once a full power off, wait and power on.
    Widgets are running as I unlock. My animated and another one both

    I meant to say that after a cold boot and you're at the lockscreen, there is no connection until you unlock. Again, this is from what I've observed... And yes, I have tried 15 minutes, and it works just as well as 1 minute. I don't know what the issue is for you...

    okay - well that's two of you who haven't seen it and two of us that have experienced occasional dead widgets after cold reboot.. . It never happened in 5.1.1.

    Not alone NewDestiny, happens to me EVERY reboot. I have to respring after reboot to get any iwidget to load. I thought it was normal so didn't think anything of it, Lol - maybe it's the version of iOS we're in? I'm on 6.1 on my i5.... then there were 2

    Thanks for chiming in JerseyGirl! Actually it's 3 and 3 counting now. About half of us have experienced this bug. Wonder what we all have in common...

    Okay then! So this is more the 'norm' than the exception to the norm.

    Do any of your mod Gurus and coders have any thoughts as to why - after iOS6 and Evasi0n - our Widgets would need a Respring after Reboot/Cold Boot to get data fed into them? We all know this wasn't the case in iOS 5.1.1 jailbroken no matter HOW much 'crap' we were running. I never had this issue in 5.1.1 and you ALL know how much **** I run!!! LOL!!

    I run pretty lean on tweaks. The only other difference for me is that I have had my wifi off for about a month. LTE is faster and with unlimited, what's the point!

    I hear that but as much as it pains me, and trust me this is gonna hurt, I have the same issue as NewDestiny. If u do a hard reboot with wifi on u shouldn't have this issue.

    On a somewhat related note, some of my iwidgets do not update my location. I tested it with several iwidgets and some update and others do not. Could it be an issue on the .js side? For example, Durbens mini GPS iwidget will not update when I change location. I have done all the usual troubleshooting.

    I have same problem wifi on or off at Cold Reboot.

    Cold boot or hard reboot - wifi on or off - same issue for me. Widgets don't get their data 'til a respring - post iOS6.

    Then why do some of my widgets get their data without a respring?

    From the replies we've had so far it's not all of us. But it seems more the rule than the exception. We've been in this place before with troubleshooting, Krima. Let me try a hard reboot right now - again - and see what happens.

    Okay - that time - all iWidgets on after hard reboot. Okay - and a second time. Ok - I'm gonna retract last statement. Hard reboot (which is a reboot from phone being fully on by holding down Sleep and Home button 'til phone goes off an back on) is fine - on my iPhone 5- 6.1.2... and all widgets work after boot up. No respring necessary.

    Then 2 cold boots in a row next ----- no Widgets working before respring.

    Okay - it's a cold boot problem for me only. Krima - have you EVER had it work after a cold boot?

    For me, they have never loaded after a cold boot since I updated to iOS 6.x I always have ended up having to respring to get everything loaded.

    I've just assumed it has something to do with how Evasi0n has to load "stuff" during a boot sequence, (that it doesn't need to during a respring, which is just a soft-boot)

    If my wifi is on and I do a cold boot, my widgets will all load fine.

    Hmm. Not for me, bro. Wifi doesn't make the difference in the tests I just did with cold booting.

    In any event we still have to put our heads together to find out why the widgets don't start up without a respring on with wifi off (data only). There are many times when we'll do a cold boot from not around Wifi. So what's your best guess?
