    Got a secondhand phone (myTouch) on Ebay. 4.04, Cyanogenmod9, Trebuchet, rooted, some installed apps.

    When I copy an installed app (say, Email) to the homescreen, I can configure it and use it, until I reboot, then the app icon disappears from the homescreen and the setup is lost.

    When I download a new app from the market, I can configure it and use it, until I reboot, then the app disappears from the applications list.

    What am I missing?
    Thanks, Jack

    Have you tried using another launcher like Nova Launcher?

    I tried your suggestion and dowmloaded Nova Launcher from Google Play. It installed ok. I rebooted, and Nova Launcher disappeared.

    Have you tried a factory data reset?

    How about installing a different ROM?

    That's something I have no experience with so I'll have to do some research. Can you recommend a ROM and a source for it? Thanks.
