Angry Home screen reverts to default after crash

Hi all.

I have a C7, very pleased with it apart from the fact that it occasionally crashes. Some widget (it never says what) causes it to freeze, then reverts all home screens to the original set of home screen backgrounds AND icons/widgets, then I have to pull the battery. About 4 times in 4 months so far.

Apart from trying to figure out which widget it is, is there anything I can do to put my home screens back the way I want them (it takes about 1/2 hour each time).

I will make sure I backup weekly so I can revert (once I am home). Anything else I could do? No magic app that saves your homescreen settings?

Tell us which widgets you have on your homescreens.
Thank goodness for Opera!

Smile Backup

Go to Menu > Memorycard > Options > Make Backup .
After the Crash : Menu > Memorycard > Options > Restore From Backup .
Only the latest Backup will be restored . So regularly make a Backup .
This might allso include Notes . Notes newer than the Backup will have disappeared .

Regards jApi NL
