Personally i found Nova launcher works amazingly well with this Rom, and has been my 'stock' launcher for a while now... but with this Rom, Apex still loads in the background constantly until i get around to force closing it... it can't be uninstalled from the app management area, so was just wondering how you could uninstall it as it's taking up system memory just by running in the background behind another launcher when it's not something i need...
Hi if you have full ROOT, you can
1. Settings -> Apps-> All select the apex launcher and then Force Close it. Clear data and clear cache taken by the app
2. Using any Root file explorer, Go to /system/app
mount as Read Write select just the apexlauncher apk file and delete it.
3. Mount Filesystem as Read Only again.
4. And Reboot
I am assuming you are NOT using the apexlauncher as your current launcher
