Re: Spontaneously losing app shortcuts from your homescreens?

Activating Debugging makes no difference, the moral of the story is to not connect your Arc to a PC. Bloody annoying.

you have an unusual bug, you should really consider to repair your phone with SUS or PCC and then check if the bug continues or update to the latest firmware

Re: Spontaneously losing app shortcuts from your homescreens?

I just had the same thing happen with my LT18a.

I connected the phone and then disconnected it after a few seconds, maybe that has something to do with it.

Also i noticed that the all shortcuts that disappeared are for apps installed on the SD card, and in particular apps that i had open or running in the background as a service (e.g. whatsapp, skype, viber)
