Well this is odd. I had done about 5 battery pulls with no luck. Double checking my VPN settings, I had a typo in my password, which was preventing wifi from connecting. Once it was able to connect, after yet another fresh reboot, I now have an icon.
Did it need to pull it down from the net, or was it sheer coincidence?
I'm a happy camper now.
Thanks again...truly a fun app.
