    Default The icon for the Chrome browser changed to a green Android in a folder, not in app drawer!

    I am using Cyanogenmod (but I don't think that matters) ICS and I have Google Chrome installed. I also put it in a folder on the home screen. In the folder, I just noticed (it happened very recently) that the icon is now a green Android. It looks similar to the one you'd see for a recovery scree. In the app drawer the icon is still the correct chrome icon! Does anyone know why this happens? Have I had malware installed?

    Same here on a Nexus 7.
    Im using a modified CM - few days ago the chrome icon in a folder changed to a greed droid. In the app drower is the correct one.

    lol.

    I'm not sure why it's happening, but it might have something to do with the way folders work?

    I noticed this recently too! I think there was an update to Chrome recently. Maybe that caused it? I just ended up deleting the new android icon (click on and hold it, then drag to top "x remove") and then from the apps, click and hold and drag the original Chrome icon to the main screen where the android icon was to replace it.

    Ja sure - you can just delete it and put it back from the app drawer.

    Yesterday was an update of google+ - after that, my g+ icon on my homescreen switched to green droid, too.
    So I think its all caused by the updates....

    Delete the icon from your home screen then add it again, the updated version probably changed a lot of the apps makeup and your shortcut on your home screen isn't recognizing the app

    Sure we can do this - we know how to re-add an icon.

    But it would be nice to know why the icon changed to the green droid. But its not that important....

    Apparently when it updated it changed some identifiers to the shortcut. It's like putting a shortcut to a program or file on your computer desktop, if you move or alter the original file the shortcut won't work
