Pretty good, now struggling to use KGWT for my next trick but may give up on that lol
Thanks for the tip. I got it going too. Now I remember why I hated it.🤣 I had some fun with it for a bit though. Definitely not efficient but without hex or root. It was a nostalgic trip back to 2010😬

I think I love niagra though. It's so minimal on that big screen i think it would be better to just create a one page widget than run two launchers. That side animation was on one preset years ago. I sent my phone to safe mode play with stuff using adb today 🤣 still have no idea what I did that prompted it.

Works, but it's glitchy. Sometimes the stock home screen returns until I press the home key. When the device is unfolded and the main screen is visible, pressing the home button causes Nova Launcher to reload, which is pretty annoying. Worst of all, after configuring this, the keyboard keeps reverting back to the Samsung keyboard instead of Gboard, and sometimes the keyboard refuses to pop up at all. Time to undo this damage.

Been a while since I tinkered and so with some trepidation I thought I'd try the switching between different launchers using Tasker.

After some swearing I managed to get it working using the guide HERE

Got Niagra on the front and Nova on the large screen!
does "tasker" work faster than the "Bixby Routines" method? im using Microsoft launcher (small) Nova 7 (larger)

The Bixby Routines version works well for me.
Now.... If there was only a way to have two instances of Nova Launcher running on the device at the same time, I could have version one layout on the cover screen and version two layout on the inner screen.
Anyone any ideas?

Maybe you can help sorry for bothering you. Everything seems to be setup except when folded or unfolded I have to hit the home button manually for the launcher to change. Do you happen to know how I can fix this?.

    Sorry, no. Sometimes the switch doesn't happen automatically for me either and I just swipe to swap the screen but no idea why you have to do it all the time
    Okay, no problem my friend. I appreciate you answering probably something you've said 100 times already. Sorry bout that.
