Default Icons disappearing after reboot

Hi guys,
I realized after transferring apps2sd, some of the icons/shortcuts will disappear after reboot. Any clues?

Apps need to be in phone memory in order to see the shortcut on home screen after reboot.
So, just move those apps back to Phone memory
Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->"On SD Card"
Select the apps and press "Move to Phone" button.

I am having the same problem on my i9000M. I am not using apps2sd. I've recently upgraded to Froyo (JK4). I've done a factory reset and format on internal sd in recovery mode and I am still getting the same issue.

Any idea/suggestion?

It is a bug of Samsung's Touchwiz Launcher. If you use ADW or Launcher Pro, there will be no problems I think.

Talking Simple Solution

Recently 3 out of 4 shortcuts icons in the undertray disappeared from my samsung galaxy i9000...

so what i did was i went to

Settings>Applications>Manage Applications> All> twlauncher> clear data...

Warning after doing this the homescreen and the menu icon orientation will be reset
but the good part is that the shortcut icons will be back

Default Figured it out

This is definitely a bug in Touchwiz. If the app has been moved to SD and then updated after the move, the Icon disappears after a re-boot. If you move the app from SD to the phone and re-boot the icons stay. Move the apps back to SD and you are fine.

Touchwiz see the icon as an ID and links the icon to the folder if the folder moves Touchwiz assumes that the program is no longer there. By moving it to the phone the id is reconnected and then moved with the transfer to SD.

No need to reset completely, just remember to reboot the phone AFTER you move the programs from SD to Phone. Then reboot AGAIN after you move them back to SD.
