Hi Everyone, I love my Lumia 920 but have always had an issue with the Store tile not notifying me of updates and have been using the "Todays App Updates" thread on WPC Forums to get my updates. About a month ago all my live tiles stopped working. I searched the forums and and tried the usual clear internet cache, soft reset, unpin the tile etc but nothing worked.
Im on EE in UK so waited patiently for GDR2/Amber to arrive hoping that would fix it but it didn't. Anyway, I also got fed up of Google so moved all my mail/contacts etc over to Outlook.com but got another issue of phone creating new message threads for my contacts. I Googled that and found an article on a MS answers (sorry don't have source) and they suggested removing Facebook app from phone and doing a soft reset. I had both Facebook and Facebook beta installed so removed them both and did soft reset.
As soon as phone booted up I noticed my store tile was showing 16 updates and my other tiles had updated as well. I left it for few days and tiles worked perfect including store tile. I then installed just the Facebook Beta app back to my phone and again all tiles have since been updating. I have also noticed a HUGE increase in battery performance, my normal day to day usage left me with 10-20% at end of day but now im getting 50-60% battery left at the end of each day. I have no idea why it fixed the tiles and no idea how my battery suddenly increased but I am well happy. It didn't resolve my new message threads problem but i can life with that.
It may not help everyone, but its been driving me crazy and this worked for me so thought I would share in case it helps others.
