It crashes when I press the home button, not always but too often, reloading my home screen and icons.

On a Nexus 4 running Android 4.4.4 with ART runtime.

Have tried uninstall and reinstall.

Factory reset may well be a good fix candidate but would appreciate help with less radical measures if possible.

Cheers

Just use a different launcher. Google now sucks your battery life anyways since the microphone is always on.
Use Nova launcher. You can't go wrong with it.

Or MAYBE try going back to dalvik. Maybe the ART runtime is making a mess with an incompatible app. You never know...

Hope this helps.
