How do you replace the launcher


use adb you will need to Google for the command i cant remember it, unfortunately its not possible to just freeze the stock launcher anymore so you will have to replace it with your launcher of choice. Keep in mind if you decide to uninstall this launcher at any point you wont have a launcher at all so keep 2 installed just to be safe and if the launcher allows it just hide the 2nd launcher so your not tempted to uninstall it to make space or something. If you dont do this and find yourself without a launcher just factory reset your TV or fire up Gplay on a computer and install a launcher that way it should give you an option to pick the target device to install it on.

you dont have to know how to code to build it the launcher lets you implement your own features using Javascript but it is optional. In that screenshot the only part thats coded is the weather forecast and the Music Player. If you know how to use Tasker (automation app) you could always use that to get information into Lightning cuz it also has a Tasker plugin.
