Default Use Nova to get a stock Android look

So this is for anyone who wants this without having to install a custom Rom but specifically for a friend as well.

First go download Nova Launcher from the Google Play Store by clicking here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.launcher.prime or searching in the Play Store.

Then download Explorer or buy Root Explorer because they are the simplest and most intuitive to use both made by the same developer.

After you've done both of those things your now going to follow the screen shots if you don't see the folder names once inside the data folder then create them be sure not to make any syntax errors. Then place the backup I've made in the backup folder. Go to Nova settings> restore backup>then choose the backup you placed in the backup folder and you should be good to go. If you like it you'll want to go to the app in your app manager and clear defaults so you can get ride of everything on your original home screen (all shortcuts and widgets). Then hit the home button and set Nova as your default.

Here is that backup https://www.box.com/shared/q2ena6wf627twkpfh7k5

Any questions hit me up.
