    I was updating my patches via Preware and the command line patch update failed, so I tried to remove it so I could continue using the "update all" feature. After my luna restart, MY LAUNCHER WAS BLANK!!! There are no apps at all in my launcher, but the 4 that are in my quick launch are still there and work.

    Has any one else had this problem???

    then hook phone up to computer and run webos repair utility and see what it fixes for you . it wont erase anything or mess with patches just open and run but make sure you put it in the same folder with web doctor because it uses it to compare with your phone while it fixes it.

    I wish I would have read this before I started the repair utility, it's taken forever!!

    This happened to me after installing the "No More Arrows or Fade" Patch. Before I figured it out I did everything else mentioned above, especially freaking out. After using EPR, and trying to remove my theme in WOSQI, I found that not only had this not fixed the problem but now my Pre still had all the patches and theme de facto running even though WOSQI said I didn't have any patches. Finally I ran WebOS Doctor and wiped it after backing up my data which gave my phone the digital enema it needed to work again. I then spent the entire afternoon theming my device and repatching it one patch at a time and determined that when I had applied the "No More Arrows or Fade" Patch it caused my Launcher to go blank. The author of the patch says that it is compatible with the 4X4 and 5X4 Launcher patches, but I also have a bunch of other patches that augment my launcher including Named Pages, Hidden Quick Launch Bar in Launcher, and other Launcher patches and it is likely NOT compatible with one of them creating this issue.

    I heard that the named pages and add pages patch is the culprit...I could be wrong...I have had this issue too...however no apps showed...I did a soft reset and all was fine...

    I had the same problem and all I did was uninstall the "No More Arrows or Fade" since it happened right after I installed it. That was the answer for me.
