"Ghost Icons" For Apps Stored on SD Card




    I have a Samsung Galsxy S8, running Android v8.0 (Oreo) with the June 1 Security patch applied.


    For some time (well after updating to Oreo, using T-Mobile over the air update), all of the Apps that I have stored on SD card appear as grayed out generic Android icons with a little SD card icon on the side; however, these same Apps have normal colored icons on the Home screens.


    Here's what I have tried:

    • Wiped the cache
    • Uninstalled and reinstalled several of them
    • Cleared the Data Cache for Device Maintenance
    • Cleared the App (all 3 of them) Data Cache

    All to no avail.  When I move these Apps back to phone memory and reboot their icons in the apps drawer return to full color.


    I even put a brand new SD card in and still no luck.


    Someone suggested that I do not have the most current version of Baseband (G950USQU4CRE9) -- is that the most current??


    ANy ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!
