    Hi all, I was fooling around with my K1, and realized something odd...

    My Blackberry Launcher has been renamed to "LauncherFacade"

    While the launcher still works, I was wondering why its name is different from before. Previously, when I want to find the launcher, its listed under the letter "B" (as in Blackberry Launcher). But now its listed under the "L" (Launcherfacade??)

    anyone notice this problem? thanks

    (Note: I do not have any other launchers installed.)

    Beside of that strange renaming, the Launcher refuses to install on a Samsung device. A permission seems to be in conflict with the native Samsung launcher.

    @Cobalt232 Is your Blackberry Launcher renamed as well?

    Yes. The name displayed is "Launcherfacade". Also, the permission "com.android.launcher.permission.WRITE_SETTING S" seems to conflict with the package "com.sec.android.app.launcher", which is the default Samsung launcher.

    Thanks for the reply. I wonder if everyone who updated to the latest Launcher has the rename bug...

    For sure. The wrong name is coded the res/values folder for all languages.

    can it be "fake"? like many BBM when it went cross platform...

    Unlikely. The package name is the same and the signature is correct.

    That is very silly QA miss.. how come? Not part of std check item? Should stand out even at beta testing.
