Do you have a rooted KFHD and want the stock tablet launcher? Follow this guide.
  1. Download Apex Launcher from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.anddoes.launcher&hl=en
  2. Download /system/app mover from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.j4velin.systemappmover&hl=en
  3. Make sure you have full root access and busybox.
  4. Then open the app and move Apex Launcher to system app.
  5. After prompted reboot, do NOT select set as default until you are 100% sure it works or you could be stuck in a loop.
  6. Select Apex without checking the default box.
  7. Go to menu by double tapping on the homescreen.
  8. Select Apex Settings. Then select Homescreen.
  9. Scroll down to UI and check the "tablet UI" box.
  10. Now press home. :)
You can also use ICS Statusbar app from the play store for an added stock ICS effect.

Thanks for reading!! :D

If this helped you out, please see if you can help me out with a bit of MB525 rom installations.
I need a rom for the Moto MB525 that is JB and is stable for everyday use. Right now I am running ICS 4.0.4 Super Stable and I would like to go to JB. Thanks :)

This isn't the tablet launcher... just a guide on how to install apex... which runs as a phablet

Dunno, must be a system glitch or something. Get root browser, place apex launcher apk in /system/app/ and reboot

7.4.9 update shrunk the /system partition to only make room for amazon apps, if that is the firmware version you are on, you can't.
