    :confused:
    My Razr is rooted and when I power it off then back on some icons lose their picture on my home screen. Waze, TuneIn Radio, TV Guide when pressed the program runs but the icon looks like the picture of a gear like settings. How can I get the icons to keep their stock graphic?

    I was pressing/holding on my home screen and choosing the shortcut to the app. When I go to my apps and press/hold the app icon a pop up window comes up with an option to "add to the home screen" When I do this it solves the problem. Any one know why the icons mess up if chosen as a shortcut from the home page?

    This is 100% a guess, but have you moved apps to SD Card?

    Well, I guess you know what the fix is then - bring them back. :)

    yeah I guess so but is there a way to "point" the shortcut to the icons on the SD card? Or are the icons on the phone memory and need to be moved to the SD card?

    There are tons of instances where moving apps to the SD card causes problems, such as you mentioned, and more. Best bet is to move them back to internal memory and use titanium backup to keep your data intact. JMHO, YMMV
