Help weird appearance bug since update


Nov 9, 2009
so ever since i did the latest update there has been a very annoying bug on my phone.

whenever there is unused space in an application, there is just a weird empty white space rather then the same background color as the rest of the application.

so for instance in my handcent application, if i don't have enough conversations to fill up the screen it goes from the black background to just uneven white empty space that looks really awful.

and in my settings menu, where there aren't enough options in a sub-menu again it goes from the black to just empty white space.

i hope this is clear, its super ugly/annoying and if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this i would be eternally grateful.

I know exactly what you mean. My suspicion is that app developers aren't adding any "wallpapers" to their apps. With the installation of GB, Moto changed our system background from black to light gray. This "system wallpaper" is what you see when there's nothing else on top of it. As much as I'm largely pleased with GB, there are two things I really miss: the ability to paste from the clipboard, and the color scheme. I'd wager both could be fixed with swapping out the ROM.
