    Lots of my shortcuts have a symbol with a cog on it and the message 'The linked program is no longer installed on your phone' when i click it. These apps are not on my app list anymore. This happened a couple of days ago but they came back after a few minutes. Ive switched phone on and off, still no change. Anyone know what the problem is and how to sort it?:thinking:

    Probably a problem with the sd card. Try unmounting it, take it out, put it back in, and remount it.

    This actually happened to me a lot a few months ago. Around that time I wasn;t getting mobile data correctly either. I restored the ROm and everything works fine. Not sure if that is the only fix, but it certainly did fix things.
