I created a Permission Level (by the name JustEditItems) which whoever has it can only edit list items. When I click on ECB menu on an item, I can see the edit item. Which means I can edit items, but why won't the edit icon on the edit field show up?

Any other solution to this approach?

Here is the list of permissions based off the permission level (JustEditItems):

List Permissions
Edit Items
View Items
Open Items

Site Permissions
View Pages
Browse User Information
Use Client Integration Features
Open
Edit Personal User Information

Could you paste in the list of permissions for the permission level? If you created a View, are you sure you also checked the Edit Button field? –  C. Marius - MVP May 12 '12 at 10:10

I just found this same problem this morning, and resolved it :) The XsltListViewWebPart has a bug in it. The default XSL for the 'Edit' field calls a template called IfHasRight, which is defined in LAYOUTS\XSL\fldtypes.xsl. The comments on that template point out that it's actually checking for permission 2, ADD items. I wrote my own to check for 4, EDIT items. You if you use SP Designer to customize your view, put your cursor in the 'edit icon' column and find the 'customize XSLT' command in the ribbon. Click 'customize item.' Then find the < Xsl> tag in your webpart's markup and replace the contents with the stylesheet below (or, put the stylesheet in an .xsl file and put the file's URL in the webpart's < XslLink> element.) We're just doing two things: first, defining a new template called IfHasRight4 that checks the last digit of the permissions mask for any of the permissions containing EDIT; second, calling that template for the Edit column, instead of the default IfHasRight.
