    Default Nova Launcher help

    I got Nova before I was rooted so I lost the widget preview in the app drawer. I have since rooted and flashed 4.0.4. Beta14 for Nova says the widget preview should work with root now, but the option for it in Nova settings is still grayed out for me.
    I searched XDA forums and saw someone else had the same issue, but no one offered any help. Any suggestions what I need to do?

    You could this:

    Uninstall/delete your current Nova (first set your launcher back to the default launcher)
    Download the NovaLauncherUpdate.zip from the xda Nova page (in the first post)
    Flash the NovaLauncherUpdate.zip like you would flash a kernel (from reboot recovery, just clear cache and dalvik first...NOT a data wipe)
    After rebooting and selecting Nova as your new default, go into Nova and tell it to update.

    This worked, just have to reconfigure everything in Nova again now.
    Thanks to you both for the help.

    I would think that if you had a Nova backup, it could still be restored, but I could be wrong.

    Try this make sure you have root explorer set to read/write and not read only. That is most likely why you got the error.
