    I installed some apps, and randomly days later the icons for the apps turned into black microchip looking things with and SD on them. It has happened now a couple separate times with different apps. I delete and redownload them, but I have no idea what is going on.

    The apps in question ... were they installed or moved to the sd card? Apps that are moved to the sd card will get a generic logo if a.) the phone is mounted as storage thereby unmounting the sd card in Android; b.) the phone isn't fully done scanning the sd card; c.) the sd card (or partition in the case of the SGS2) is damaged and needs to be reformatted; or d.) the apps data files have been inadvertently moved or deleted.
