Home Screen Icons After Restart

I just ran the update for my 3D and after the phone restarted a lot of my shortcut/app icons on the home screens are the standard android icon as opposed to the icon for the app(s).  Nothing I do restores them properly.  The shortcuts still work and if I remove the shortcut and place a new one there the icon is correct.  Anyone else seeing this?

Sometimes if you have apps moved to SD card, it can take a while for the proper icon to show up on the homescreen.  If you continue to have trouble, try moving apps back to phone- (assuming that is what is causing this) Let me know if this fixes the issue.  Thanks!

I think this is just a bug with the new software and phone. Mine does the same thing.

I moved one of the apps back to the phone (from the sd card) and all of the icons appeared properly.  Seems like it is a minor bug that will, hopefully, get fixed sometime soon.

Yes, this appears to be a Sense bug.  Is sprint/HTC tracking it as such?

I see the same thing......

So I updated the phone with all updates, then downloaded my apps, and moved them to the SD Card. I put the shortcuts to the home screen and I have rebooted 3 times and they all still show. Try uninstalling one of the apps and reinstalling, moving back to SD Card and adding short cut as a test. It may not work still, but at least we'd have somewhere to start.

Did you do a full boot or a "Fast Boot"?

Full boot seems to make the difference, and mine are still AWOL.

oh well fast boot is checked by default so yes you are right it loses it on full boot. so why not keep fast boot on then until a fix?

Some of the software changes require a full reboot, and I'm a purist

It's an issue with the Sense UI.  I've come across two methods to get your icons back.

The first is to go to personlize>scene>load any other scene, then switch back.

The other is to go to settings>applications>manage applications>all>htc sense (the first one that shows the sense clock widget)>Force stop>OK.

When sense UI reloads, all your icons will be displayed correctly.

I just tried your second option and it worked GREAT.  Thanks, Rick
