I wanted to change the launcher for my android phone. I was using the vanilla unaltered version of android launched and I got bored with it. I went to the google store and saw a number of launcher. I downloaded one at random and installed it. As soon as I applied it, my phone froze and the worst problem is that I cannot revert the changes as I cannot access the options through this launcher?
Problem with new launcher for phone
Launchers aren’t good for Android unless it’s a trusted one. There’re lots of applications even on Google Play that contains viruses or malwares. Also, if you’ve several launchers installed at the same time, this problem will occur.
First of all, restart your phone by long pressing the “Power” button and selecting “Restart”. Then, tap from top to bottom and click on the gear icon. Go to “Application Manger” and uninstall all the launcher apps.
If you’re stuck, it’s highly recommended to give a factory reset. Shut down your phone, press and hold the “Volume Up + Menu + Power” button. When the phone boots, use “Volume Down” to select “Wipe Data/Factory Reset” and press the “Power” button to perform the action.
Some of the best launcher apps are Nova Launcher, GO Launcher EX, Launcher 7 etc.
