Default Texts don't appear, Blinkfeed stopped working.

So once again I write about an issue I'm having with no solution. After downgrading to Sense 5.5 ARHD 53 from Sense 6.0 ARHD 62 with a full wipe, mind you, I don't see my texts that arrive. I see them pop up in notifications but when I go to the stock Sense messages app, they're not there. As if they never came, and I see only older messages in the thread. Also Blinkfeed stopped working and updating, even though I have topics marked for my highlights. Running out of ideas.
