Please name two apps that keeps disappearing from folders on home screen...

Because that's your problem right? Shortcuts inside folders located on the home screen disappears after reboot.

Xda developers app :p and respawnables game

I deleted the logs and reinstalled your script again. but this time I power off my device and switched it on, the apps didn't disappear. I restarted and the apps were present. But after another restart these 2 apps were missing again, other apps which used to disappear were present. :what:

I need an exorcist to my phone :p:D

So, did the new Prism (OTA) solve the missing icons/widgets for you?

Works well for me. Only issue is that after reboot the wallpaper changes to HTC default setting. Have to manually set my wallpaper after restart, but much better than having to add all those disappeared app icons :) Would be great if the wallpaper setting was also restored.

@Patrics83 okay I finally downloaded the zip, installed it from recovery. Tried putting shortcuts on homescreen for internal SD apps, rebooted, they disappeared again. Am I doing anything wrong?

    Home Screen Saver


    What it is?


    Recently me and others have been suffering from a weird bug. After a normal reboot some of my widgets gets removed from the homescreen!
    So after each reboot I have to set up my homescreen again...

    I did some research and found out that it only happened to 3rd party apps. (asec apps)

    And since I'm a script freak I started to build my "workaround solution". :p

    After you have flashed "HomeScreenSaver", a script will be executed at reboot. This script will backup your entire homescreen.
    Then when your phone reboots again, another script will be executed and restore your homescreen.

    With other words, no more missing widgets after reboot!


    When to use it?



    • If your 3rd party widgets or app shortcuts keeps falling off the homescreen after a normal reboot or shutdown


    How to use it?



    • Download the "Script" and copy the zip to your sdcard.
    • Reboot into recovery and flash it just like a ROM. (no need to wipe anything)
    • When done, Reboot.
    • Set up all your widgets and try a reboot.
    • Done!

    This is amazing! Great thought! :D

    Sent from my One X running Blade v4.5.0. At a mere 250 MB, with tons of AROMA Mods and tweaks, this, is what you want.
