I'm sure it does. And I hope they will. But maybe the developer has no interest in making the module compatible with third party launchers.

Personally, I wouldn't mind using the stock launcher, if it was a little more customizable. But there is so much missing. Even the HomeUp module doesn't add that many more features. That's why I can't do without Nova

I'm afraid Samsung's devs have no interest at all, the customers use an other launcher then it's own ... .

Keeps crashing
Oh yes, I noticed that too since earlier today. It's a silent crash because there is no error but the service does seem to get killed after some time. And not just that module but also task changer and other services or apps that rely on Accessibility services. It must be the battery optimization. It seems more aggressive since Android 11/one ui 3 Update

TaskChanger doesn't work at all ... . If I understood correctly, TaskChanger shouldn't work on android 11 as a standalone app any more, it can be launched from HomeUp only now. But it's still there and launched from HomeUp doesn't work too :-(

It does work on my note 10+ with one ui 3.1/android 11 but only for a while because I use Nova as the default launcher

... not for everyone obviously ...

I have galaxy s21 ultra. Home Up wasn't working for me at all and that's because I'm using lightning launcher. All you have to do is go back to One Ui launcher (change default home screen app), and then go back to your launcher of choice. Might have to do this with every reboot but it works.

What I do not get is why multistar is crashing it has nothing to do, I cannot even open the app or do the split view option
Mine works fine, except it gets killed by device care after some time or if I reboot, then I have to open it manually for it to work again. Strange yours crashes though. What android and multistar version are you using?

@xantrk ,

... there is something happened and it's very confusing me ... . Received a notification, updates are available, but when opened NL, there where no updates ... . My mom recived that notification too and NL showed an update for LockStar. So I checked apkmirror and there is an update in deed but it seems that it`s already installed in my NL(!) . The only rational explanation I have, GoodLock updated it without notifying me. But that will mean that you GoodLock is working now in my region (Germany) or maybe everywhere now ??

Hi Meduza,
Today's notification was targeted to Android 11 devices only as LockStar update requires that. NiceLock application is only showing you the compatible updates, I guess you have that option enabled. But you should not have received the notification if your device is not Android 11. I'll look into that.

Tab S6 received android 11 recently :) So we are talking about android 11 :) I have really the impression GootLock is working (screenshot) I`m able to launch all models from there.

    There is trick that does the job:

    After you finish installing and updating everything you need to disable nova and then set it as default again.

    Settings -- Apps -- Nova -- Set as default --> Clear Defaults

    Go to Nicelock/Goodlock app , Activate Home Up and then the Task changer (if you have already done this go directly to the below step)

    Settings -- Apps -- Nova -- Home Screen ---> Nova Launcher

    Mine is working now.

    Cheers
    Works, but then after a while I guess it'll close and it reverts back.

    I am using and loving Nice Lock app to customize my new Samsung device (long time since Galaxy S3 time), but each time I open the app I get the notification "some modules are not yet updated by Samsung to support Android 11", I understand this, can you add an option to disable it?

    Thanks
    It is a server side switch, which is about time to disable that as most of the modules are updated. Should arrive to your device in around 5-6 hours, likely faster. Thanks for the feedback

    Yes Android 11 with OneUi 3.1 S20.

    Thx. for your feedback m8! It's pretty strange .... . When I klick on TaskChanger in HomeUp, I get a notification " please download the latest One Ui Home market update " . Things like reinstalling the HomeUp apk haven't solve the issue ... :-(

    Can you use Galaxy Store? Like does it work, can you update from it?

    I've seen a few cases where it doesnt work with Sim Carriers that Samsung never adapted, and you're left with what Play Store can update for you.

    My play store farted out when I updated to OneUI 3.1 and I had to do a number of data clearings on Google apps, and even download the play store from apkmirror—it UNINSTALLED itself.

    Anyway, when I opened the NiceLock (I have the pro) app, it basically called me out for pirating and requested that I download the free app. That's really not nice. Frankly, it left a bad taste in my mouth.
    Hello,
    First of all, sorry for any inconvenience that caused.

    NiceLock simply talks with Play Store if one of the accounts that is active in the Play Store have any purchases of the application. In very rare cases, such as yours, a wrong answer is given by Play Store and this unfortunately happens. It is highly unlikely to be caused by NiceLock but likely a cache error in Licencing library inside Google Play Services.

    All previous reports are solved by clearing cache of both Play Store and NiceLock, or uninstalling and re-installing NiceLock via Play Store. If this doesn't work, please contact me at [email protected], and I will help you as fast as I can.

    Best Regards

    HOW TO DOWNLOAD MODULES
    For module downloads and updates please check out NiceLock Downloader Companion application for always up-to-date links. Or for manually downloading the modules you can also use

    You can also email [email protected] for details.

    Due to Google Play Store policies, NiceLock can not download anything outside Play Store and I had to move any links in this thread

    Hi everyone,

    I have been quite busy since the last month, after moving to another city, now I'm in another country for work. I tried to manage updating the DB and handle notifications as soon as possible to release. Hope you are happy with the situation.

    NiceLock has gone faaaar beyond what I expected. I just wanted to thank you all for the support. I'll continue to do my best to improve things, and implement your suggestions. Please let me know when you have any.

    BTW, Yesterday, there was an update on NiceShot, which essentially removes all of its features, saying they are included in the OS (they are talking about android 10). So please, do not update to that version and I will ignore that one on the DB.

    Hope all of you have a nice week, may the force be with you.
