Default Nova launcher icon problems

I have two separate issues concerning icons with the latest beta of Nova Launcher Prime.

First one is that when i reboot the device some of the apps that are put in folders, create a duplicate icon in the drawer. I have read that others have this issue, but could not find a fix.

The second one is that after I updated my LG G Pad 8.3 to the latest version (4.4.2) the icons for most of the LG apps are missing and instead the generic green android icon is displayed. The icons show normally on the stock lg launcher. I have tried wiping data and cache for nova launcher but it did not help, any ideas?

That was exactly what I needed to do. Added the apps and now they're showing the bubble notifications. Thanks for the help.

Works great. Have it as two finger swipe down and it shuts off the device nicely without wear on the power button. The link for anyone interested:

This is an alternative for those with GravityBox installed, like me .

I've been using double tap to turn off my screen with Nova and Llama for a long time now. Works great.
I have configured an action in Llama to turn off my screen, then I assigned the double tap gesture in Nova to call the relevant shortcut of Llama.

Hey guys. First of all - i really like the nova launcher. Best for me so far.

Just want to know if theres going on something in the background.

Any new features or something else planned?

Please don't punish me for this question. I'm just curious and want to know if it gets any updates in near future.

If not, i'll stay with it anyways.

With kind regards, Sebastian.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Same issue here.
I thought this had something to do with my currupt ROM.

Now I flashed a new ROM and installed latest nova prime. (Configured everything from the scratch, no backup.)

Edit: any suggestions how to fix this?
