    I have a bunch of icons that reappear after deleted & no app of that name exists for uninstalling purposes:

    I 'believe' one of the custom roms installed 1 Mobile Market, which in turn installed these.

    I've uninstalled that market, but the icons not only remained...but reappear after deletion.

    I'm not looking to place blame.

    They are:

    1Mobile Games,
    (Apps) App Store,
    (JOB SCOUT-find the right job for you) Local Jobs,
    (Sloto 777 Mania) Slots (woulda preferred SLuTS)

    Any thoughts?

    Occurred on new rom(to others too), went back to other rom with similar symptoms in update(to others too), downgraded version and they diminished but still occurred here and there, changed to different rom and further dimished but still occur 1-2 x daily.

    I may have to wipe / swap chargers(at three different locations) / swap battery / ignore the infrequency of it...who knows....or may likely end up buying the Motion....

    Try running Addons Detector or Airpush Detector to see whether there is something else on your phone using push advertising.

    Thanks! I couldn't get addons detector's accessibility function enabled in CM10.1 4.2.2. nightly on a Galaxy Note 2 (vzw), but airpush caught Cross Live Wallpaper ad handed! Of all things, a cross used to promote ads...sheesh!
