AHHH, now i see, said the blind man, who picked up his hammer and saw. lol. I've never used the MIUI backup apk until this install. I usually use Titanium Backup to restore apks and ROM Manager for my backups. But when I went to reinstall my apks with the MIUI backup, I noticed the option to backup ROM was missing. Sorry bout that, but I know people had issues with the apks not appearing on the homescreen with a fresh install and TP stated that the apks were there but just hiding and a reboot would make them reappear.
