    I'm running 4.2. Today a large section my apps seemingly uninstalled themselves, the blank default icon remains on my home screen, but the actual apps are uninstalled. I tried reinstalling from the market, but the phone reboots when it begins to install. I tried restoring one app at a time, and multiple from TB, but phone still reboots as it starts. I even restored a nandroid backup, same apps were still uninstalled and unable to be restored. Is this the beginning of my sd card failing?

    This happened to me just yesterday, I was going to take a photo with my camera, and my apps were all gone except Google Reader. I was like WTF? So I rebooted it and then it all came back. I'm starting to notice that PE 4.2 is getting glitchy lately. It's not as sharp and clean as it was when I first installed it.

    Very well could be, especially if the apps in question are running from your sdcard. If that is the case, this is a prime example of why (if anyone really reads my posts) I never really recommend running apps2sd.

    good luck

    I can read/write other files on my card just fine. And there are a few apps still running fine off the sd card. Would that be possible if the card was going bad? I've had cards fail with other devices before, it was always all or nothing though. Just trying to determine if buying a new card is worth it, or if I screwed something up (I was travelling and did not do anything abnormal).

    It's really hard to say for sure. I suggest moving apps back to the phone one at a time and see if that helps.

    good luck

    Did you mount your SD to your PC?

    I've had Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons 'disappear' on me multiple times each. No other app has ever done this... but these two have almost regularly.

    ... never happened on PE's Froyo builds... only once I started using GB builds.... and it's really been my only issue on GB builds.

    I replaced the card, and was able to copy the old card over. I tried everything beforehand including a complete wipe and starting from scratch. Everything is fine now, still a mystery as to what happened though

    hey

    Hey i this just happend to me on my bionic. I think with powerfull phone like the bionic and droid three, it has something to do with the charging. Last night i left my phone on the charger all night even tho it was fully charged. Now i know thats not good for your phone, but with the research ive done it all seems to happen with charging the phone.
