    Remove your widgets in Nova and stock launcher, restart the phone and it should work. After this process add the widgets one by one and see if it crashes again.

    I did when I first set my phone up but then I deleted it and reinstalled it and it's been fine since.

    You have to delete all your widgets from it and the default launcher, then reboot.

    Credit to whoever it was that told me lol.

    Sorry if I sound ignorant but you mean all the widgets from the home screens?

    Yes, whatever the reason there's a conflict with some widgets and third party launchers after Android 12.

    Ok I'll do that. I also deleted, and letting the update run. Then I'll reinstall.

    As others have said, deleting the widgets from both Nova and stock launchers and then rebooting solved my Nova problems.

    They pushed a Beta update that fixes this problem, the catch is that it comes with another one. I updated it and had that crash, as many other users. Right now I don't recommend to update.

    From their Discord server.

    That update fixed my issues but the crash's only amounted to a wait/close notification...I ignored it and it did not seem to effect anything. I uninstalled Nova and reinstalled and I thought that fixed it. As it defaulted to Nova Free and I had to install Nova Pro.

    As long as we are on the subject I have a Nova Icon that I have been trying to track down and get rid of and it is stumping me. This icon does nothing when I press or long hold. I can drag it anywhere on the main home screen but no where ,else and it can be dragged to the edge so only half shows. It can not be placed in a folder.

    Any help appreciated maybe just a setting I accidently chose.

    Odd, ever since my initial setup issues, Nova has been perfect for me.

    See if Nova is enabled in the Accessibility settings. If so, turn off the Accessibility Shortcut.

    Different phone but I guess the setting should be similar.

    That is it ! Once I got to it I remember turning on Nova 7 shortcut in acc. options menu. Said I wonder what this does...lol but I was in the middle of so many changes I forgot it. Searched hi and lo in Nova for 2 days...

    It doesn't do a thing on a Pixel.

    I may need to give Nova another try ... Been mostly Pixel Launcher for me since I got the Pixel 3 way back when. I'd give Nova a-go every once and a while but gesture navigation on Nova never did seem as fluid for me. Haven't tried it yet on my 6 Pro but may have to seeing how Google completely screwed the At a Glance widget IMO.

    Nova is back in my opinion. I'm not seeing any hiccups with it. Really happy with the way it's running on the phone. I'm an old Nova Pro user and I stopped using it for a while including on my fold 2 and my fold 3... It's nice to be back

    Good to know
    I usually backup my Nova settings and restore to my new device so I don't have to do a lot of work on the new device
