"Failed to load widget" After Update
When upgrading from 3.4.x to 3.5.0 (35006) most of my widgets show "Failed to load widget". Today I updated my devices from 3.5.0 (35006) to 3.5.1 (35008) and again my widgets broke.
- I have 3 widgets on my Nexus 5X and Neuxs 5 (identical widget configuration for both devices)
- After the update 2 of my 3 widgets (with IR actions) show as red blocks with the text "Failed to load widget". The 3rd widget with no IR actions didn't break (I'm unclear of this is related or coincidence?)
- My launcher is Nova Launcher, not the default Google Now Launcher
Has anyone else experienced this issue?
See it you can restore them by opening the widget editor and select it in the top settings field.

I get "Failed to load widget" randomly. My widget was working for the last week or so and recently got that red background again... Once that happens and I go to Widgets menu and tap on Export, the whole app freezes as well.
I am using the latest version 3.5.2 on Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android 5.1.1.
Is there some incompatibility with the phone/android or something?
Could your error be related to this one?

I have the same problem. All my widgets are gone and I cannot restore them in the widget edit as suggested.
