Is your ROM deodexed? In particular, is your APK deodexed?

If so, decompile the APK. Search for a lib folder.
If there is, rejoice. If there isn't I can't help any further apart from finding a different launcher.

Okay, assuming your APK is deodexed(which it probably is) and has a lib folder, open the lib folder. Open the armeabi folder within. Copy all the libs inside to your ROM's /system/lib. Zip all, flash.

Do post the result. If any anomalies pop up, do post here as well.
I am currently away to study for exams, so please do not PM me for anything.
