My phone, on rooted 4.4.2 has been fine for a long time. I use Hololocker and the Apex launcher.
But it woke itself up in my pocket a couple of times this morning, for no apparent reason.
Now, Hololocker no longer seems able to permanently select Apex as its launcher, every time I log in, I get the dire Google Now default pages with the stupid search bar at the top.
Apex launcher can be started from its icon, and I get my normal screeens back. But when I run an application, on exit, back comes all the default screens.

Any idea please what is going on? I've checked and both Hololocker and Apex are up to date.

Update: On investigation, the default launcher under 'advanced settings' in the Apex settings had become the standard launcher. No idea why, seems OK now...
