    all of them on the screen. first all the home screen icons, then the other pages started to disappear. then all icons on the pages were gone, however they are all still on the dock bar, just not on the screen, all widgets also disappeared. but only when rooted, once i disabled androot, my phone is now functioning normally again.

    Are you using nandroid back up? If so thats why your icons are disappearing. You can always add whatever ones you want back by going into the app drawer press and holding on the one you want to place on the screen you want to place it on.

    Whatever the cause it isn't Universal Androot that's doing it, simply the fact that you are rooted. Some application you have given root access is doing something you don't want it to do; this will happen whatever method you use to root the phone, you need to isolate the app or service that is causing the problem and correct it.

    One way which wont be easy if you have a lot of apps, is to clear everything off and ad them as you go along. When the icons disappear then you will know what one is causing the problem.

    Clear out your superuser whitelist so nothing has root privileges. The first time a program requests root access, grant it but allow no others at this time.

    Test. If you see no bad effects, allow the next request for root access to succeed.

    Repeat testing until your icons vanish. The last app you allowed root access to is probably the culprit.
