Duplicate Icons show on Homescreen

 

Here is some infos, I have 2 entry points for my app.

1 , When I download/install the jad file, it shows up 2 different icons say A and B in the downloads folder.

2,  I move icon A  from downloads folder to homescreen folder

3,  I reinstall my app. I see deplicated icons A and A in the homescreen folder

4, If I click on both A and A in the home screen folder, the first A shows up the right information whreas the second A shows up the information icon B should show.

5, I go to the downloads folder again, both icons A and B are gone. (B is supposed to stay in downloads folder)

 

Anyone knows what might happend here? I really appreciate any help!! Thanks in advance!!

Re: Duplicate Icons show on Homescreen

What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry device software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.

Re: Duplicate Icons show on Homescreen

Hi MSohm,

   Thank you for the reply. It happened on all the 4.5+ OS blackberry devices. As long as I have 2 entry points for my app, It is fine when I fresh install it. But if I drag the two entry point icons out from the Downloads folder to the homescreen and reinstall the app, that two entry points icons become duplicate. 

   Any help or suggestion is appreciated!! Thanks a lot for taking time looking at this issue!!

 

Regards,

Re: Duplicate Icons show on Homescreen

I tried this using BlackBerry device software version 5.0, but was unable to reproduce the issue.  Are you seeing this in 5.0? If so, can you provide links to a pair of JAD files that I could use to reproduce this?
