    Default Do you know why.....

    Why does the icon for apps turn gray and say SD on them after you move them to the SD card on 4.3? I like to be able to move them to save storage space on the phone but not a fan of the colorless icons. Anyone have a fix??

    I think that is in the stock ROM itself, and cannot be altered.

    Found the fix.....For those apps that are grayed on the home screen but not in apps, looks like the shortcut is losing some of the link information to the app on the sd card. Delete the defective shortcut from your home screen and remake it (long press in blank space, select Apps and Widgets, select app). The new shortcut should look and work OK.
