Kitkat Launcher/GNow. Anyone got it to work?

    I've been tinkering around with the new kitkat launcher files -- decompiled and trying to see why its not seemingly compatible with the Source.

    Has anyone ever got this to work on Hera devices? Or is it just me?

    Check if there is a /lib directory in the apk. If so drag the *.so into /system/lib and try again. If not no clue.

    edit: you could also do a logcat to see what is tossing errors.

    aye, I've already checked for lib files, there are none. logcat gives cryptic errors.

    Looks like the launcher is tied with google now. Do you have the kitkat versions of both installed? You might need to.

    yeppers. the launcher I've read, is actually inside Gnow, the launcher.apk just calls upon it.

    Yeah, I've already been there and nogo. I'm hoping to rework GNow to work on the hera. Just need to figure out why it's crashing.

    I suppose I should have been more clear. I'm talking about the gnow version with the kitkat launcher imbedded in it.
