Homescreen not populated after shallow flash
After shallow flashing Gecko and Gaia using B2G-Flash-Tool, 90% of the time, the homescreen remains empty with no icons. This is fixed on reboot.
Naoki, have you seen this? I have noticed this too many times.
Shallow flashing? Might be a mismatch of the gonk to the gecko layer; though I'm not 100 % sure. I haven't shallow flashed on the flame in a while due to the gonk changes that have been occurring with bluetooth / NFC...
oops. didn't mean to clear my NI. Will take a closer look to see if I can repro. This would simulate OTA testing ... which right now is up for debate from version to version : see bug 1151006 I think FOTA might be required depending on which version to which version you go to.
I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Can you tell me what you're base build is? Basically the output to : https://github.com/Mozilla-TWQA/B2G-flash-tool/blob/master/check_versions.py

I can't replicate at the moment, but I've seen it on a Keon last week. It's been on for weeks now with a variable reproducibility rate. I'll update the bug next time I bump into this issue.
Today I shallow flashed build 20150421010201 on 2 different devices using flash_pvt and I could reproduce this issue on 1 of them: Build ID 20150421010201 Gaia Revision a8e4f95dce9db727dda5d408b038f97fb4296557 Gaia Date 2015-04-20 19:30:21 Gecko Revision https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7b823253d9f2 Gecko Version 40.0a1 Device Name flame Firmware(Release) 4.4.2 Firmware(Incremental) eng.alex.20150114.113956 Firmware Date mercredi 14 janvier 2015, 11:40:18 (UTC+0100) Bootloader L1TC000118D0
Naoki can you take a look at these? I was able to get both the flash logs and logcat of boot in which this reproduced. Im not 100% sure but it seems to be i think a mounting problem. I dont think it can read the files in which things are held.

Mass update: Resolve wontfix all issues with legacy homescreens. As of 2.6 we have a new homescreen and having these issues open is confusing. All issues will block bug 1231115 so we can use that to re-visit any of these if needed.
