    I wasn't getting a gps connection so I rebooted my phone and now all the apps that are on my sd card (like this one) just have a round gear for their icon. I tried restarting it for a second time and the same thing. They still work except for my app2sd app. When I go to open that it says this app is not installed on your phone. Any ideas?

    Ok I take that last part back it did just let me open the app2sd and when I looked on there at the whopping 8 apps that are on the card they all have the correct icons but still the shortcuts on my phone don't.

    Its because you have the apps on the sd card. Move them to the phone and the correct icons will appear.

    There seems to be a big in Android where it loses addressability to the portion of the apps that is on the external SD card or on Media storage. There have been several threads on this.
