I'm using Nova Launcher with my stock HD+. I made a shortcut to the original Nook Home screen using Shortcuts>Activities and selecting "Home main activity" from the list. The shortcut appears on the Nova Launcher home screen with the Android robot icon and the word "Home".
It works fine to take me to the original Nook home screen. Problem is after a restart the icon is gone but the word "Home" remains, but shifted to the top (assuming there was still an icon). It still works as a shortcut to the Nook Home screen but no icon. I have deleted the shortcut and redone it several times and the same thing occurs. Any ideas?
