    After restore of backup the home screen is empty, no widget and icons but dock is restored well. Had to reinstall launcher and do all configuration from start to get all in place like before.

                    • I'm having issues reinstalling the restore on new phone. It just times out over and over before asking to wait or quit. I wait btw.

                      Previously, on other phone, after restarting the mobile, I would have to reinstall the restore. Now, on new phone, it won't complete the restore. I absolutely love the app, launcher, and customization capabilities. Really wish it was working properly. Thanks for your time and hope you have a wonderful day.
