    Thought I’d upgrade the firmware on my r99v2 and followed this guide. All went really smoothly until i started the box up… the only launcher I have is Nova. Now my screen looks like a giant mobile phone not an Android TV box.
    Then i notice in my list of installed apps a setup wizard, so i run it. This goes through some steps including one screen that looks like it’s giving me the proper launcher, but when complete and after a reboot i still have Nova and no alternative. Any help?

    Not particularly happy

      If you do not wish to stick with pre installed launcher. So its not limtied to use as you may download other launcher of your choice from Google play store and change it the way launcher you download as its fully customisable.
