Whenever my phone gets restarted the application icons for many of my apps go "dark." (By "dark," I mean the icons are still there, but they are either a dark shade of gray or they become the standard green android icon.) The only way I have found to restore them is to set up a security lock pattern and then they reappear. Any thoughts? Two things to know before you answer. First, if I don't restart the phone, I keep getting that annoying pop up that says it has been one week since the phone was restarted, even though I turn my phone off every night. Second, I do not generally keep a lock pattern on my phone (nor do I want one). Thanks.
Goto Settings- Applications - Running Services. Hit the menu button to "show cached processes". Fint HTC Sense, click it and select Stop. Exit settings and HTC Sense will restart and the icons will be fixed. If you care to know, what happens is after a restart Sense starts up before the phone has fully mounted the SD card, that's the cause of the missing icons. Forcing sense to start again after the card is fully mounted fixes the problem
Were gusgus's suggestions helpful?
Thanks gusgus. You are a genius! Is there a way to stop that from happening in the first place, or do I just need to do the manual fix when it happens? Thanks again.
Right now there's no way to keep it from happening on a stock phone. Its something HTC/Tmob would have to fix with a patch, and possibly even that isn't possible. You'll just have to do the manual restart of sense each time you reset your phone. Glad I could help.
