    I'm using the Apex Launcher, and the "home" button on my HTC One X brings me to the home screen/screen selection as expected.

    However, after upgrading my device to Android version 4.0.4, the home button switches to the built-in HTC Sense launcher (v. 4.1). Reinstalling the Apex Launcher didn't help.

    How do I configure the Home button to use the Apex Launcher again?

    Head to Settings -> Apps -> All -> HTC Sense -> Clear Defaults

    Alternatively, via Apex Settings Advanced -> Set Default Launcher -> Apex.

    Next time you press home, you should be given a choice of what launcher you want to use as your default :).

    Ah! I had missed the default launcher selection setting while browsing through the various options that might reset the home button to the desired (or undesired, if you're HTC Sense) function.
