    Hi guys,

    I'm hoping someone on this forum can help me with 3 unfortunate issues I've been noticing since I rooted last night. I rooted 2.2 on my Droid X and backed up everything with Titanium backup. I removed a bunch of bloatware but I made sure that everything I renamed from .apk to .bak was "safe to remove" based on messages I read on multiple forums. I am also running Launcher Pro Plus. Here are the issues I'm seeing.

    Every time I power down the phone and then turn it back on, I'm seeing the following issues:

    1) WidgetLocker - the Alarm Clock v2 tiny clock icon that I have on my lock screen disappears. Also, the Switch Pro Widget (Size 4) that I have on my lock screen also disappears. I can put them back no problem but as soon as I power down and turn the phone back on, they're gone again.

    2) Folder Organizer - I have several shortcuts on my homescreen with custom icons. For example, I have a shortcut with an icon that looks like a pair of headphones. Tapping on this icon opens the Folder Organizer shortcut to reveal my music player, Pandora, FM Radio, etc. Everytime I power down the phone and then turn it back on, all of the icons revert back to the default Folder Organizer icon.

    3) Anytime I plug in my phone via USB to my computer, Folder Organizer and Widget Locker fail with a force close. This happens regardless of whether or not I have USB debugging checked or what mode it's on (PC Mode, USB, etc).

    I tried reverting a few items from .bak back to .apk but it didn't fix either of these issues. Anyone have any ideas? I would GREATLY appreciate it, thanks so much!

    i use folder organizer (but not widget locker) on my rooted 2.2 and i do not have this issue.
    have you tried uninstalling both apps then reinstalling one at a time?

    Thanks to the fine folks over at xda, I have solved the issue.

    The problem was that Folder Organizer, SwitchPro and Widget Locker had been moved to the SD Card. Moving them back to the phone solved all 3 issues!
