Yes I am on a verizon moto X locked boot but have root thru slapmymoto.. and I use a great file explorer named fx explorer and used it to change the moto x launcher to .apk.bak but the home screen wouldn't work after doing that.. but I could access previous pages so I pulled up downloads and tried running the three circles apps homescreen, weather and circles.. but they all failed. wonder if I can do this without an unlocked boot?

I see. I have XT1052 EU version, arrived with 4.4.2 and I'm root only after i unlocked the bootloader. That's why i asked the locked boot. If you dont have a 3rd party launcher (nova, apex, etc) it's dangerous to rename the only launcher.

To tell the truth another hungarian forum members tried the circles, but not suceeded. For me the MotLauncher more slower than the original and when the circles widget relod (step back to the main screen) it has slow respond + the clock not working. = wiped the apps and I use nova beta launcher with chronus.

Guys, this can be recreated with far less headache in Ultimate Custom Clock Widget, or Zooper Widget, or any kind of customer widgets.

Isn't this installing the Droid Ultra Launcher into your /system/ folder? That's far more invasive. Those apps have those permissions because you can make widgets that display that information. It doesn't read it with impunity.

It is not good idea to change permissions for files you are not installing. From my point of view you need to set permissions only for installed files and do not touch other files.

It's no matter. Anyhow all apps in this folders need 644 even i make script 7 files.
