So I got my Gen 2 all nice and set up with the Nova launcher, my HD widgets, a couple of browsers I want to try etc.
I turn it on this morning and it hangs on the colored X boot screen. Now this is the stock tab, I haven't fooled around with anything much, just added some apps. So after waiting for it to come out of the boot screen for a long time I finally shut it back down. This time, when I turned it back on, it didn't hang but it's back to mostly where it was new. That is; no HD widgets app and the screen is back to it's stock looks.
I guess maybe I better get a hold of the HD widgets dev and see if he knows for sure it's compatible with 4.3.
I'm hoping this is just a little glitch in getting things set up and not a sign of instability! I'll see how it goes... I'm loving the looks of this new tab but I hope it will be as reliable as my old one!
