NOVA Launcher

I used and liked the paid for "pro" version of Nova Launcher in my Gemini.

However, now I find it less than optimal on my Cosmo, such that I have reluctantly UNinstalled it.

What say you?

How to remove the annoying, monstrous home page footprint of the "search" bar?

Well, I disabled Google and that removes its search bar.

HOWEVER, disabling Chrome DOES NOT remove its search bar (and leaves one without a decent browser).


Any how-to git'er done and gone instructions are WELCOMED!

Seems that after entering my PIN through the cover display, there is a keypad on the opened display that asks for one's
personal security password that is NOT the same as the PIN.

So, I am locked out.

My Gem's curved hinge is slowly loosing its strength.
Its once rather upright angle is widening.
The top, screen panel is weakening because of one's many, yet, softest of touch-screen taps / touches.
Touching the screen will most probably, increasingly and eventually widen the hinge's curved shape, and the top panel will almost lay back flat.

And so I wonder if anyone has removed the hinge (seems doable) and squeezed it back into its original shape?

That asked, I suspect that effort will work but only temporarily as flexed metal actually becomes weaker.

Please advise with your thoughts and....


P.S. ATTENTION Planet: Might the hinge be sold as a replacement part when the above happens, as it most likely will in time?


UPDATE: Planet emailed today (31st of August) saying the hinge can be removed using the removal tool AND squeezed gently back into shape, as it were (but cautioned not too much that getting it back on the device becomes difficult or impossible). And they added that if the hinge loses it hold, in time, they will ship me / whomever a new hinge (free) under the Gemini's ONE YEAR WARRANTY (from date one received their Gemini).

That is good and welcomed custom support!

Thanks Planet.

USA Phone & Data Networks: Which ones work or don't work and why...

There is much consternation herein with USA phone carriers / data networks services that are or have become incompatible with the Gemini 4G WiFi device.

That is because the Gemini is UNCERTIFIED by them. Certification is an expensive nuisance. One Planet Computers is not (Yet, if ever?) able to invest in.

The reality is that some Gemini backers on networks like VERIZON, which are known to restrict and hobble their SIM chips so that settings like APN cannot be changed, and more... are less than fully functional.

Such is the sorry state of this backer's Gemini use - SMS / TEXTS are sometimes sent, other times not. Since the latest firmware update, SMS / texts are now not received when they are sometimes sent.


1. VERIZON = serious problems with calls and / or text messaging.

Your input about Verizon is welcomed.

Info about other USA networks that work 100% is welcomed.

Thank you.


P.S. I am minutes away from pulling the SIM from my Gemini (writing it off as a loss) and resurrecting my factory-reset Samsung Galaxy S5.
