Below I discuss SuperSu as an example but I suspect there are more apps affected as well.
I go to open SuperSu and discover that its nowhere to be found.
- I tried GoogleNow launcher
- I tried Nova launcher
- I tried searching for it on both launchers
To complicate things further, it still manages my phone, I still see SuperUser grant permission boxes or requests for root access.
- Ive checked for it being disabled, uninstalled, or frozen and its not
- Ive checked the MainActivity for being disabled but its not, also tried disabling and re enabling the MainActivity to no avail
I then tried restarting the phone which also didn't work
The only way I have managed to open it is through ADB shell access
am start -n eu.chainfire.supersu/eu.chainfire.supersu.MainActivity
Once manually opened it runs just fine but glancing at the RecentApps icon list, SuperSu has no logo/icon, its an empty placeholder with SuperSu text below it
I'm now growing concerned that there may be several other apps who are the same way and after rumaging through google for a while now I cant find any answers
My only theory thus far is a running optimization program by 3c toolbox that runs on boot which Ive disabled and trims partitions, cleans cache, and optimizes databases which I didn't even know 3c was doing that so disabled immediately but not sure if its relevant or not. My last hope is just re-installing the entire system but I'm hoping to avoid that
