    I have 3.0 and I downloaded a couple apps. Prob is the new app I downloaded has an icon of a different app that was already on my phone. Plus it looks a little greyed out like your finger is pressing it. It keeps happening randomly to new apps I download, and I've tried deleting and reinstalling to no avail.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Yes!!!! That happened to me too! :mad: It put Tap Tap Revenge on Flick Fishing, 1/3 of the Topple 2 icon was missing, Enigmo was just flat out gone. :eek: Maybe that's the bug Apple was talking about.

    Ok even though it's annoying it's nice to hear others are having the problem too :p

    Guess we'll just have to wait for an update.

    Happened to me with Harbor Master. I updated to 3.0, too.
    But after installing 3.0, i downloaded Baseball Sluggers directly to iphone 3G and it has the correct icon.

    Wild West Pinball on the other hand shows up correctly as well, only having this issue with Harbor Master.

    yep

    This has been a problem with many of the betas as well.
    Just force restart your phone and the icons should show back up.

    (Hold power and home until phone restarts)

    The weird thing is I force restart everytime I download a new app before using it, so it's like bouncing around my apps. It'll go from whatever app icon it was screwing with before to the newest app I downloaded. So at all times at least one of my apps has the wrong icon (and greyed out a little).

    ok posted this in another thread. i have os 3.0 beta 5 so not sure if it will work for you. for all apps with no icons/showing the wrong icons, launch each one of them, try to play a little. then, restart your phone. just doing a restart won't help. works for me.

    Hmmm, I haven't had any problems so far. Haven't downloaded a lot of applications since updating though. Has Apple said anything about a list of bugs and when they're planning on fixing them?

    didnt seem to work. i tried uninstalling and reinstalling as well and what it does is it shows the right icon while its downloading and then when its done downloading it switches icons and shows a diff app's icon.

    i was dl-ing castle of magic and it showed the castle of magic icon but when it was done dl-ing it switched and showed the sway icon sort of greyed out. happens to other apps too not just these two. playing/rebooting/reinstalling doesnt seem to fix. guess well have to wait for update

    This problem is pretty annoying. It's done it on two out of three of the apps I've downloaded since 3.0. Hopefully, a fix will be in the first update.

    From what I can tell, this appears to be an icon cacheing issue. It seems to affix a deleted app's icon to a just installed new app. This would explain why the apps that are already installed and untouched are ok. However, this doesn't explain Sadangelman's issue if he truly never downloaded the Y! Music app.

    Any devs have any thoughts on how to "clear the cache" to allow for the correct icons to appear?
