    I just got my 3GS like a week and a half ago, and the other day I was listening to music and opened some random game. It cut the music, so I quit because I was hoping it would be one that let me listen to music while I played. Clicked the home button, then clicked the iPod button to get back to the music. And that's where it went wrong.

    The phone locked up, sent me to the Apple logo loading screen, and sat there for a while while nothing happened. Eventually I got sick of waiting and shut it down. When I restarted, a few of the icons were all fucked up. It pretty much combined two icons into one, and fucked up the colors. So my AroundMe icon is a combination of that and PhotoSwap. My Disc Space icon is pretty much just a blank gray box now. And I think I deleted whatever other program was fucked up.

    The only issue is the icons, nothing else. The programs work fine, it just looks retarded in my app list. I tried uninstalling and redownloading the apps, but that didn't work. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    If you have your stuff backed up, it won't be a problem. Just restore it and be done.

    :werd: Restore and then sync and you're set. Everything will be back to how it was.

    I had the same issue once, an app made my 3GS restart and some icons where hosed.
    Restarting can some times fix it and others it might not.
    If you had sync'ed the phone with all of your apps before the crash then try this.
    Delete the app with the broken/wrong icon from the phone
    Shut it down and restart it
    Then this is where it's hit or miss:
    Resync the phone again making sure the app(s) you deleted app you want back is select.
    ...or...
    Download the app directly to the iPhone again
    May have to restart phone again after either one.

    Yes.
    Yeah, I sync'd it on like... Thursday maybe? But I downloaded a bunch of shit after that, without the chance to sync it again (I was out of town). I'd prefer to not have to download it all again, but that seems to be the only option. :hsd:

    You only need to delete the ones with the bad icons.
