    donno the reason, but for some unknown one (for me), firewall is blocking microsoft WWA host and thats why metro apps are not working correctly.

    this is what i did:
    whitelisted wwahost.exe as an allowed application to be free to communicate with network in windows firewall and my comodo firewall. now all metro apps are working perfectly.

    Hope this help others in same situation too

    found sth else about tiles,

    explorer needs to access 1 of Microsoft servers in order for tiles to work, i tried few times and found if explorer gets blocked, tiles will not update, in last few days, i found these IPs:

    so it seems, Microsoft does something on own serves and then allows tiles to update

    will keep digging to find more
