I noticed there was an update to the Android support today so I updated it, and now the icon for the Android support is in my launcher. Tapping on the icon does nothing except making the screen scroll back to the overview of running apps just like it would when loading a normal app, except that nothing happens after that, it just stays on that view until you do something or the screen times out.

Rebooting fixes this issue, but I'm still curious as to what caused it.

What's the reason for the icon...?

Probably a phantom icon that got created temporarily for the installation spinner in the launcher (before the package is installed, Sailfish does not know that is has no icon, of course) and not cleaned up properly afterwards. Since the icon has no physical representation in the file system, it will be gone after a reboot.

Thanks for answer, but for some reasons for example Waze app still show me incorrect ETA when I drive. It still show me 2 hours less than correct time. But if I press on this I can see in the popup window the correct time, exactly the same like before this update...
