In Huawei Y300 we got Android ver 4.1.1, original EmotionUI used to put all apps on the main screens, no drawers facility.
Changing ROM to FusionX or Free your mind or Touch.... any I have noticed this behaviour.
Using Link2SD to move files to Ext-SD partition, just to save some extra space on internal SD card.
All light weight apps are moved to SD card.
Made a few short cut of those few apps (SD-card) on main screen, so that u can access it easily - a general behaviour.
Made at least one folder on Main screen and put one- or few apps (SD -card) shortcuts in there. - a simple use of grouping via folder.
Now when u connect the phone to your computer for transferring files to/from phone, as soon as internal and external SD card appears on the Laptop, on the Phone's main screen, the direct links and the links we made in the folder for Ext-SD card apps - disappears.
I understand that its not accessible at this point of time - but it just DISAPPEARS.
Now ejecting the mounted drives from Laptop for Int/Ext-SD cards, the phone would mount back the SD cards, but the DISAPPEARED links does not come back and remains empty in place...
My question is, is this the beaviour of the ROMs as its ported from original ROM or is the problem with Android ver which is 4.1.1?
