    I have several apps that are stored on my SD card. Sometimes the icon for the app shows up on my homepage, sometimes all i get is a grey box that says a couple of words and a little SD card next to it. They seem to appear and disappear at random times. Anybody else having this issue and how did they fix it? thanks

  2. Can I ask a few questions?

    Is your tablet rooted?

    Are you using an external SD card?

    Are you using stock or a custom ROM?

    When did this start to occur?

    started a couple of weeks ago.
  5. Next time it happens, could you check if the entire app is gone, or just the icon?

    Also, what type of SD card are you using?
