    Text unreadable

    Anyone seen this? Text on widgets and apps messed up, seems OK within apps. Corrects on reboot but recurs in short order. Ran Lookout antivirus scan but was fine.

    Have you tried a soft reset? Battery pull wait few minutes then reboot. Also did you by chance change any settings in developer options? I have heard of others with display issues when Force GPU rendering was turned on.






    Before you flash anything can you get back to stock? How to get back to stock using Odin



    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    will resolve after Powering Off and back On but returns, after battery pull only has occurred once in last 24 hrs. Will keep monitoring. I haven't changed any of the Developer options.

    Are you running any other launcher other than stock? If so you might go back to stock launcher or delete cache/data for said launcher (even stock). Settings>apps>all>launcher. If you still have issues then a factory data reset might be the next step.

    Androidoc - you're not alone...

    Running AOKP + Franco kernel, but noticed the problem on stock before flashing. Was blindly hoping that flashing the ROM (and in the process, getting 4.0.3) would resolve it, but it didn't.

    paul - wiping the launcher cache didn't do it; in fact, when I rebooted the problem recurred immediately. Typically it takes a few hours of use and a screen timeout to make it happen.

    I guess factory reset is the next option, although at that point I'll likely just take it back to the carrier to replace the hardware. Just wanted to let you know that it seems to be a rare, but not isolated issue.

    Interesting . . . I haven't run across anyone else with the issue. I'm running stock, haven't rooted yet. I thought about taking it back as well, but didn't want to get stuck with some refurb or something. I've been OK now for about 2 days. I'll see what happens I guess. Thanks
