This has happened about 2 times in the last 2 weeks and was wondering if this happens to anyone else and anyway to prevent it.

The most recent one happened when my phone reboot cause it ran out of battery and when I turned it back on, the whole home screen layout reset and I had to make all my folders agian and arrange the icons. It's happened 2 times in past 2 weeks and pretty annoying.

Does this happen to any of you? Is there a solution to this?

Guest Mode causes this. No solution but to uninstall.

I noticed this to be a glitch in the latest version of Iconoclasm I believe. Ever since I installed it, sometimes when I reboot after installing a new tweak it'll ask me if I want to restore a previous layout. If I click yes, it restores everything like original (no folder filing, etc), but if I click delete, it restores to the last boot. Seems like it's happening less now (actually hasn't happened since 7.0.6), but was annoying for a bit.
