Sorry I don't have a solution, but I have this problem also and have a couple piece of information to add. Go Launcher and apps associated with widgets are installed on internal memory. Here's what's strange: 1. the Widgetsoid widget in the notifications area always comes back upon a reboot, but the homescreen widgets do not 2. the GO Calendar/Agenda widget (downloaded as a stand-alone, but requires GO Launcher) always shows after a reboot, but the GO SMS widget (came with the GO SMS app) does not I suspect there is an issue with GO Launcher not initializing homescreens properly. That's just m –  CartoonVillain Aug 12 '13 at 17:59

Is your widget application installed to the SD card? If yes, then that is the problem. When the phone reboots, it takes a few minutes for the SD card to get loaded. This causes an issue for any widgets that are not installed to the internal memory as they aren't available when the phone first boots up, causing them to not load.

So, please verify the widget app is installed to internal memory instead of the SD card.

@iask Does the same problem happen if you use a different home launcher than GO? –  Bryan Denny Jun 5 '12 at 15:11
    
nope, it seems to happen with this launcher only –  Jessy Jun 5 '12 at 19:58
