Default Possible solution to screen flicker when going back to an app

Hey Guys,

so I'm on my 3rd nook HD+ and all 3 had some sort of flicker when i open an app that's already running (CM10.2 and CM11). I've been tinkering with the Nova options and as soon as I switched the opening app animation from stock to slider (I believe it's on nova prime only) there were no more flickers to be seen. I'll post a video sometimes this afternoon.

I'm using Nova launcher too(not prime) and I too had the flickering problem, but after some days, it disappeared on its own(I didn't change any nova settings)

I had this problem with CM11 with the stock launcher it only seemed to happen in landscape.

Only way I could fix was with fresh install of CM11.
Restored all my settings/apps made new backup and all is good.

I was able to find the culprit. Wallpapers are the problem. If you are on Nova and set a Wallpaper with "Portraitmode - Tool", the flashing will start. If you use the default Tool (where you can see portrait and landscape outlines), it is gone.

Probably because you changed your Wallpaper.
