    So I'm running the newest "released" build of Froyo on my Droid.

    Whenever I put applications/icons into a folder on a home screen than reboot, the apps are no longer in said folders.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    I'm having the same problem--had to go back to the older Froyo build, but I liked everything else about the more recent one better--but without my folders, it's a pain to keep anything straight.

    Yes, it seems to be the only problem I'm currently having with Froyo. If someone could provide a solution, that would be awesome. :)

    Same problem here but with direct dials. I have them in a folder and they disappear after a while. Usually, just the contents of the folder would disappear but the last time, the whole folder just disappeared.

    I guess Froyo doesn't like folders.

    On a related not, my Froyo doesn't seem as blazing fast as others around here are reporting. I consistantly get 880 or so with froyo and a 1100 overclock Kernal. Not anywhere near the 1600+ others report.

    This is becoming not worth it to me.

    Are you sure your SetCPU settings are correct, and/or how you want them?

    Still wishing someone would come along with a fix/solution for this issue...

    I'm running BB 2.2 with black ice and Chevy's 1.2 ULV 7 slot. I have direct dial shortcuts which work just fine. Additionally, I have Apps Organizer which allows me to add apps into folders then place on a screen. I have 7 folders and have not had any issues.

    I might have to give Folder Organizer a shot if no one can come up with a fix.

    Fix-kind of

    I had the same exact problem, super irritating.

    I switched over to launcherpro and it now keeps my apps in the folders I created. I had launcherpro before I upgraded and think its way better anyway.

    For reference running BB v0.2.1
    p3 1.25 LV kernel

    Edit:
    So I thought this was a fix, but it created a new problem. Now when I connect to usb it reverts to regular home. Then when I go back to launcherpro my widgets stop working and I have to reload everything. Just the black holder box remains.

    solution is google needs to fix the beta/rc version we have before releasing it.
    if using launcher pro you can hit preferences-restart launcher which helps.

    I would try a fix permissions once you get the apps on the screen you want. Reboot then any after that everything should run smooth and stay put. I found only the app icon disappears but the app is still showing installed. This worked for me and its been more than a couple of weeks without anything strange happening.

    Thanks, but ROM Manager's "Fix Permissions" isn't meant for Froyo yet, I believe.

    Also, I just decided to go with Launcher Pro, I like it more than the default launcher anyway.

    The fix permission from bugless beast will do the trick if you are getting error on the regular fix permissions.

    Disappearing apps from folders

    problema appears to happen if app is loaded on SD card. for some reason several apps installed on the SD card instead of the phone. these were the same apps that were disappearing when re-booting the phone....I went into "settings" and then "Manage Applications". I then selected the "move to phone" button. This seemed to fix my problem.
