OK so I've had this LG L70 for a month now still no root. But that's not what I'm here to talk about. I'm here to ask for help or info with my problem. So the stock launcher is OK but no wear near better them sum or these aftermarket launchers... Next launcher in general. Well after downloading next Launcher I tried to set up my home screens with the same widgets I had on the stock launcher with no luck. It tells me there is a problem with the widgets tap to reload. When I tap they disappear. Anybody know how to fix this problem? Maybe some kinda work around. Thanks for any info.

OK so all my system widgets that came with the phone don't work. All that came with apps I've downloaded work. Any ideas?

Probably because many of the stock widgets are tied to the LG framework and need the stock launcher to run correctly.

That sounds about right. I would uninstall all that crap and get all aftermarket but I can't root yet. Phones to new can't get it into recovery mode.

Just disable the stuff you aren't using via the built-in Application Manager in Settings. Just because the widgets are there doesn't mean they are harming anything or that you have to use them. You aren't going to get any usable space back from uninstalling them anyway as those are installed in /system/app and stuff you add gets put in /data/app.

What I was trying to say was I can't download aftermarket stuff for the launcher because my memory is slap full.

I don't use any of the Google Apps other then maps and play store. Don't get me wrong the phones pretty fast! Is just got no memory. Way to much system junk apps and no way to root so I can't really uninstall system apps or move to sd card.
