Default TouchWiz stops responding from My Magazine

So i was annoyed by mymagazine being only 1 swipe away and being accessed by the double tapping home button. So i turned off the home button setting and then then turned off my magazine. it wasnt an issue but i ended up just rooting my phone and then uninstalled all the bloat apps....including mymagazine.


Now when ever i double tap the home button my TouchWiz crashes. however, if i swipe up, it just goes to the play store and says item cannot be found.


i really hope that we get some way to swap out the my magazine for google now or something useful. anyone know a work around that doesnt involve a different launcher??

I am having the same issue - hitting home button when on my homescreen causes TouchWiz to crash. Did you ever figure anything out?

If you uninstall my magazine or freeze it, tw will fc. It's tied I to the framework of touchwiz, either use a different launcher or reinstall/unfreeze my magazine

This might be a dumb question but If i use a different launcher other than TouchWiz will the s pen functions still work? Also, playstore doesn't have MyMagazine. Do i just need to install the apk if i want to keep using touchwiz? (very new to root)

thanks

Yup will still work - you'll probably find the mymagazine.apk around somewhere

Default still stuck :\

When i try to install MagazineHome.apk i keep getting "Application not installed".
If i try to install it with Rom Toolbox APK installer it just says installing then goes away as if nothing happened.

I was reading on a few other threads but am quite confused. What is this term Push(ed) being thrown around.

You can push/side load via adb or cut n paste it into system apps and set correct permissions - not done it since I had my HTC one so not sure if it is different on the Note, just grab Nova launcher can customise as much as you want and have no fc and no mymagazine
