    So I finally updated to the latest version and was attempting to clear some clutter. while messing with the rows in the launcher editor, a bunch of my apps disappeared. Now the problem is that they are still on the phone but the launcher icons seem to be lost somewhere in oblivion. Any idears? not a big deal for free apps but is a major concern for paid stuff.

    no app drawer on miui. I do have alt drawer but it's one of the missing shorcuts. I didn't do anything weird btw. All I did was mess with the number of rows and columns and miui effed the pooch big time.

    There should be an app drawer if you swipe down from just below the status bar in the upper right hand corner. It was there the last time I ran MIUI anyway. If they are in the app drawer, you should be able to get the shortcuts back.

    Its a pain but I finally got it to drop down. Very finicky about where you swipe at. Was easier to practice with the status bar swiped down already and less frustrating.

    this might be resolved but if it happens next time, just keep rebooting the phone until all your apps show up
