Getting NovaLauncher back after system update

Hello

I jailbreaked the Karoo of my bike friend (right after he saw Komoot running on mine :D) but he did the last update over it and lost the ability to get the NovaLauncher.

So I tried to reinstall Apkpure and NovaLauncher, and it worked but only after using ./adb install -r
Despite that when I reboot his Karoo, I never get the choice of booting on KarooLauncher or NovaLauncher :o

Any hint ?

Thanks

If you hold the bottom right button down (the home button), it should give you the option to choose launchers. If you defaulted to the Karoo launcher you can use an adb she'll command to launch it (you'd need to know the package name), or the easier way is to install another launcher (which will allow you to choose a launcher each time you hit home), or uninstall and reinstall Nova. Start with holding home button.

Great !

Home button didn't do it, but after installing an other launcher (Go EX) and reboot, I had the ability to choose among the 3 launchers (Karoo, Nova and Go)
Thanks for the smart hint

For my culture, what is the adb command to uninstall a package ?

Hi,

Just a question on komoot... Do you have the full functionality available, including navigation and can you buy maps of a region on the Karoo?

Thanks,

Paul

Hello,

with Komoot you can buy single regions or for small money "all regions".
The regions are linked with the user account.
For route planning you can use the Software with the Android App or with an Internet Browser.
A nice feature is the integration in Chrome through a plug-in.

Thanks a lot for the information! Sounds nice (although the regions are quite expensive at 9€/region).

I suppose there is no need for the Google apps to be installed for using komoot?

... I think I payed for all regions around 30,- € (my location is Germany)
... the app you can install through the "APK Pure" App Store.
... I would never install the google App Store :shock:
... at the moment it works flawless :mrgreen:

I paid about 20€ for Komoot, and (years ago) around 8€ for Osmand+. I can't believe there is a difference in price, depending in which country you live? Osmand is now in use on my phone, but I used it on the Karoo as well. You get a lifetime use for these full package prices, so I don't think it is a bad deal. But may be I need Locus maps also, it seems very wel for MTB use. We are allmost done on the road here in the Netherlands.
