    Default Apps Randomly disappear from App Drawer

    Usually after I unplug my phone from the charger, but sometimes just randomly for no reason at all when I open my app drawer it's either blank or there's just a couple app icons showing. I can open market, browse to my apps and open it from there if I need to.

    Sometimes rebooting helps, sometimes unmounting and remounting the SD card helps, sometimes neither helps and it comes back on it's own eventually.

    Default I wonder if your SD card has a bad spot?

    Might want to try a different microSD or a full format in windows and then the phone to see if it has bad spots. Back up to a fold on your PC and then format and copy back.

    Do you have the apps installed to your sd card?

    What launcher are you using? Have you tried a different one?

    Hah. Maybe it's the solar flares.

    You can always try clearing cache under settings> applications> launcher pro or clearing the defaults there and hitting the home button to try a different launcher. If the issue goes away then at least you know it's launcher pro and not something else.

    No cache to be cleared, like I said it's weird it doesn't always happen just randomly every once in a while. Like today it happened after I flashed NitroDark v3 over NitroComb cus I didn't like the font color in comb lol

    But a restart fixes it for the day it seems.

    I second the "try a different launcher" suggestion. It's the most detached component of your app drawer.

    Let us know if it works.

    If you're having kernel problems I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but a glitch ain't one!

    I have the same issue. I fix it by killing Launcher Pro in the Sammy Task manager, then restart it...apps pop back up. Probably not the best solution but it's been working.
