This is driving me insane,
No matter what I do or how I set it, it will ask me to select the default app, choosing between standard home screen and simple home screen. I always select "always"
Manually setting the default under settings makes no difference. You might get 15 minutes before it starts asking again.
I did a system reset from within settings and it started asking me almost immediately after it was set in the setup screen.
I have tried disabling/removing Simple home screen but since its a system app this cannot be done.
Answering my own question:
If you do a factory reset from recovery mode (turn off phone and then hold power and volume up), then that seems to fix it.
A reset from within the android software itself does not work.
Hi @TonyThomas - Sorry to hear how frustrating it's been, but I really appreciate you letting us know how you solved it. Thanks!
