Default Nova troubles on tablet (TF101)

I regularly have a weird situation on my tablet. When returning to the homescreen the desktops suddenly are all empty, but I can still scroll through them. The dock is visible, but can't be scrolled and you always see the same buttons, and none of them work. Going to apps to stop the nova service doesn't work, the only thing I can do is a reset.

I'm running on the newest version. Anybody else getting this on his/her tablet?
It never happens on my phone.

Unhappy Nova Lancher Help

Hello,

I am using the ROM Virtuous Inquisition and Nova Launcher with it. Every time i restart the phone or power it off it resets the home-screen to the default look removing all my icons on the home screen and the launcher bar.

This is very annoying and this post is my last resort or i am loading a new ROM.

I am using the latest Nova Launcher and the latest build of Virtuous Inquisition. My phone is a HTC Sensation.

Thanks in advance

Have you tried wiping Nova Launcher's data or uninstalling/reinstalling?

Also, not sure if Logcat would show anything, but it might be worth posting one just after a restart to see if anything shows up.

Unfortunately, there's no solution, since devs don't have the ability to adjust price by country or region.

As for Nova, I believe the stock launcher is under the Apache license, and therefore, is not open source. As such, no launchers written off of stock code, need to be open. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Kevin addressed this topic at some point a while ago, and I think this was the gist of his response.

I believe you are mixing license terms here. The Apache License, specifically the Apache License 2.0 from 2004 on, is an OpenSource Initiative (OSI) recognized OpenSource License.

http://www.opensource.org/licenses/Apache-2.0

By saying "the stock launcher is under the Apache license, and therefore, is not open source" you are incorrect. Software licensed under the Apache License is OpenSource but modifications to it are not required to be equally released as OpenSource sources. This is similar to the BSD licenses, which are also OSI recognized OpenSource licenses but which do not require others to provide the sources or to provide their modifications in OpenSource.

I believe you are thinking about the GPL, Gnu Public License, family which is not only OpenSource but also requres that any modifications WHICH YOU DISTRIBUTE to also be licensed under the GPL. It's actually more restrictive than the Apache and BSD license families, but we can get into heated religious wars over that topic. If you don't distribute your modifications, you are not generally required to provide source to them (there are some corner cases where software is utilized as a service where things get a bit gray). Even there, there are exceptions for certain kinds of linking and for collections. If stock were licensed under GPL, then all modifications to create Nova would have to be released in source form under a GPL compatible license. This is not required under the Apache License, but both are, none the less, recognized by OSI as OpenSource licenses and they are the authority in this regards.

Yes, I see this on my Transformer Prime running AOKP and Nova. I cleared Nova cache and data but it still happens.

Never happens on my GNex

what the..are you talking about..
Virtuous Inquisition IS ics rom afaik, so there should be no problem using it. ICS can be CM9, aokp, vanilla aosp etc..

But i can't help Ashley with this problem..could be caused by corrupted data or something like that maybe?
