I'm one of the new Pre3 owners. I decided to transition my Palm Profile from my Pre 2 to my Pre3.
I dunno what happened to cause it, but immediately once my App Catalog apps had restored (and no, I hadn't restored with Save/Restore yet), I noticed easily half my PDK games being affected by a black screen bug. Basically, I would open certain PDK games, and they would turn the screen black and the phone would go unresponsive. In fact, the only way to return the phone to normal was with a battery pull!
The bug affected Glyder 2, Mini Golf: Wacky Worlds, other Glu Mobile games and a few others, including Angry Birds. Gameloft games seemed to all work fine for me.
However, almost accidentally earlier today, I noticed that after I deleted one of the black-screen-games, then reinstalled it, it seemed to work scaled properly. No more black screen issue.
I dunno if that means these games were updated, or if deleting then reinstalling was the cause of the fix. However, as i know I'm not the only person who was experiencing this bug, I thought I should post this PSA to Pre3 owners to delete/reinstall black screen games to fix the issue
