Default Installing apks through adb

Hey Folks,

I got a few requests from people who had deleted the Mi Launcher after rooting the phone and being stuck at a blank screen (I made the mistake too)

Now for all of you who have done it, its easy to fix.

If you are already connected to the internet on the phone, all you have to do is log into play store from your PC and install a new launcher.

If you are not connected to the internet, then follow this method.

1. Download the files from this link : platform-tools.rar

2. Extract the downloaded file to a location of your choice

for example - D:\SDK

3. Download a launcher apk to the same location - D:\SDK.

you can download holo launcher from here:

Holo Launcher 1.2.4 - APKTOP

4. Now go the folder, press the shift button and right click. You would see an option 'Open command prompt here' - click that to open command prompt.

5. In command prompt type "adb.exe devices" without quotes and hit enter.

6. you should see your device getting listed.

7. Type "adb install *.apk " (replace * with the name of the apk file)

8. Once get the success message, reboot the phone and you have the launcher installed.

Sooraj is right.

You should be able to boot into fastboot mode.
You can flash the CWM recovery through fastboot.
ADB will work through CWM, so you can follow the method I have described above.

Please help..
I rooted my A57...and by mistake deleted the Mlabs launcher....
Now my homescreen is completely black...I can receive calls and sms...but can do nothing else...as my homescreen disappeared..
Moreover I unrooted it a hope to get the homescreen back but in vain..
Also my USB debugging has been disabled...
If I get to know a method of enabling USB debugging I can install launcher from pc easily...and get my screen back..
Please do not give answers like... 'Go to Settings/Applications/Development/USB DEBUGGiNG...'
I can not access my homescreen and hence settings..

So I need serious help ....How can I enable USB debugging now..?any command or something..??
Help me.....

Hi debris, and welcome to AF

It will be easier for people to help you if you describe your problems. The more detail you can give the better.

If it's not directly related to the subject of this thread it would be best to start a new thread for your problems - less confusing for other readers.

Good luck
