For the last couple days, whenever I reboot my tb many of the icons don't load their pictures. Instead a generic android icon is shown. I can still tap on it and the app will load so it still works that way. But having pages of the same icon for different apps gets old and sometimes hard to find the app I'm looking for. What can I do about it? I've tried fast boot and regular boot and their is no change. Thanks!
My wife and I both have been experiencing this same issue. Not only are there the generic icons but the apps wont launch or update.
I have gone through this same issue multiple times with multiple fixes. Sometimes it would fix itself with a reboot other times it could be handled with a battery pull. But yesterday was rough, neither of these two methods above worked. I thought at first it was Sense related because Sense has crashed many times before with symptoms like this but after seeing this happen to the apps on my SD card I'm starting to wonder where the problem really is.
I reformatted my SD card yesterday thinking that would do it but no dice, didn't work. Factory reset was the only thing that got me back on my feet
So now, its like I dont want to even reboot this phone because who knows how it will start up. Will I have my icons or not???
I really hope somebody might have some answers to this messed up deal.
This used to be a problem for me with apps that I moved to my SD card and then the icons that I placed in folders would change to generic droid icons. My work-around was to use a taskkiller to force close HTC Sense and when it was rebooted, all the icons would be fine until manually rebooted the phone again.
Since MR2, I've let the programs install where they want by default and I no longer have any problems, even with the programs that installed themselves on the SD card. I also haven't bothered to move programs to the SD card so maybe that would create the problem again? But I have over a billion apps (yes, litterally a billion) and still have plenty of room on my phone's memory and on my SD card so I've stopped worrying about this and just enjoy all my icons staying in place, even those that installed themselves on the SD card.
