    I'm using Nova Launcher on my new Galaxy S7 Edge. The launcher was working flawlessly, until yesterday. I got an OTA update from either Verizon or Samsung. A software update. I think it was supposed to fix some security issues. Well, since then, Nova launcher has been crashing. Everytime I try to add a widget, or try to tweak a launcher setting, it freezes and crashes. Every single time. I can't add any widgets. I suppose I could try to unistall/reinstall the launcher, but I don't want to have to set all my pages up again.

    Anybody else experiencing similar problems since this new OTA update?

    what have you tried to do to remedy the situation? The first thing I would do is restart.

    You can backup your settings from Nova Launcher and restore them once you reinstall. Before uninstalling try clearing the Nova Launcher cache.

    Sounds like Nova got corrupted. I use Nova, and had no issues after the Verizon update.
