    Default All the sudden my home button keeps asking me which launcher, disregarding my "always"...

    Happened maybe a handful of days ago. So just now i removed my adw launcher, power cycled and reinstalled, now it's not doing it *every* time but it's still doing it randomly.

    Have you tried to force stop the other launchers?

    ohhh. hmmm. can i do that to the default launcher without any issues? I removed the only other launcher i had, Nova. But now it's asking me adw or the native one.

    drat, i figured it out. After i added Swipe pad, which was awesome, it asked me which launcher every time i hit the home button. Then once i removed and reinstalled ADW, it only asked me which launcher from apps i'd opened with Swipe pad. . boooo. Swap pad was cool. booooo. Swipe pad be the culprit.

    Yes. If you force stop the default launcher, there shouldn't be any issues. Maybe clear defaults on the stock launcher as well.

    Selecting another launcher as always should clear default on the current default launcher automatically. If it doesn't, there's a firmware problem.

    Random. Seems fine now. At some point my phone stating bugging out and had 2 adw launch pads and I couldn't get back to the original. I reset launcher choice from settings and now its fine. Lol. Phew! Thanks all.
