Default App icons missing from homescreen

When i'm in the system (non-oui) launcher and i drag an icon of a system app to the top to remove it, i get an error that it can't be removed. However the icon still disappears from the homescreens for some apps. The app is still visible in the app manager in settings and an icon can be added to the oui interface. The app isn't disabled

Can anyone tell me how i can get all invisible app icons back in my homescreens? I have a 1gb/8gb 2100mhz developers edition model with the latest stock software.

As a temporary solution i've installed an app drawer app...

You tried to change launcher?
My watch is stuck on custom so I'm not 100% sure....

In app manager find the launcher and clear its data.this simply refresh the launcher and make it create lost icons again.
