Break sth software related? Don't think so. I've been switching it couple of times and all good. Permissions - yes. They reset unfortunately.You turn off and on your gonna reset all permissions and might break something software related. I am not going do it again. Maybe someone else would.
i do not use gestures but for the recent apps and alternative launcher is my solution:
1. Select poco launcher as default.
2. restart phone
3. select your launcher.
this works until restarting phone
It worked for me either
