NOT DEVELOPING ANYMORE, don't own this device

old post
Hi, sorry for a bad OP, but I found a hack using hidden android api to enable custom launcher!

Here are the steps

1) install Nova Launcher
2) Install this apk https://github.com/parrotgeek1/Launc...e.apk?raw=true
3) go to settings, accessibility and turn on detect home button press
4) press home

I need some testers!

I tried this and it did not work for me. When I open the launcher hijack app, there is no button to click. There is only a blue at the top that says laucher hijack. Beneath that is says Hello World. No buttons, nothing else.

Go to settings, accessibility, and turn on the detect home button switch. Also it only works with Nova launcher

Thanks...works beautifully. I couldn't root my 4 yr olds HD7 because the pc won't recognize it and I wanted to get her a more personalized interface. Thank you so much.

Acceptable.
Doesn't work with google now luncher! Nova works fine, still flashes the original homescreen before the switch though. Acceptable and thanks.
