    Hi

    My SGS was acting strange so I did the usual turning off and on. However I can no longer see or access any apps/widgets and my home pages are now blank.

    I can find my way to settings and see apps through the 'manage apps'menu. It offers me the option to uninstall them but I cannot open them.

    I can back up on Kies but can only back up photos and contacts.

    How do I get my apps back? Once back are there any ways to back up apps? I recently lost everything when kies crashed half way through updating firmware. Dont fancy re installing all my apps again from scratch.

    Thanks

    Ian

    Try reseting the launcher. Go to settings, applications, manage applications, all. Find TwLauncher and click clear data. If you have another launcher you have to do same for it. Now click the home button and see if you can get the launcher to start again.
