Hi All,

Here i'm trying to launch android apps by following method but fails to get the app icon on main menu.

1. download app from google play by using Real APK Leecher v1.3.5 tool.

2. install the download .apk to IMX6 android ICS device via ADB (in device settings->security-> Unknown Sources(enable)

   $ ./adb install -r *.apk

3. application installed to /data/local/tmp/ folder successfully and able to view the installed app in settings->apps

4. No shortcut menu is creating in main menu.

We are using Freescale release code(android 13.4-GA) on the target device.

hi,

Did you change the launcher? This problem is only related with this application, or there is same symptom for the other applications? Is it possible that too many shortcut make the specific shortcut invisible? Suggest you search the installed application in your device via "Google Search".

The issue was with the KEY pad events were enabled in Linux kernel and key pad events were triggering the events and put device in SAFE MODE, In safe mode it's allow us to install the apps but allowing us to run the apps.
