    Easiest way!

    Just go to settings>apps>all apps and then click on trebuchet launcher or whatever and first force kill it and then you have to delete the data next to move to sdcard

    Did the whole resetting both caches and I still get error that Trebuchet has crashed. If I go through the top right drop down, I can get Settings to start, but as soon as I touch ANYTHING, Settings stops working too. So frustrated. Now I’ve done a factory reset and it seems to be working again, sort of a pain in the arese to have to go through just because Trebuchet doesn’t want to play nice. I installed Nova Launcher and went through the process of setting everything up. Is there something special I should do to ensure that Trebuchet doesn’t cause issues int he future?

    Ok. Had the same problem, but solved it. On your pc, login to your Google account, go to play store, look for Nova launcher and click there install to your phone.
    While stuck in the trebuchet error notification, Nova will be installed because of your pc command to do so. Then click OK on the trebuchet error message and you’ll be able to choose the Nova launcher….
    Worked for me!!

      Thanks Herman!! I know EXACTLY what I did to cause it to crash! I slected a higher screen resolution than was already set. That was it. Could never get back into it. I cleared cache and still no go. You idea was brilliant.
      Because the crash was constant and persistent, you can NOT go to anywhere. I could barely get out of the report the crash!

        As a followup, Nova came up and asked me if I wanted to import all my settings. OF course I said yes. It comes up with a blank canvas. Nothing…. I was able to open an aleady opened settings program and put the resolution back down. But since I can’t get Nova to work, how can I get Trebuchert back?


          Herman Brouwers

          Strange. No problems with Nova.
          Try again on your pc, login to your google account and see if you can deinstall Nova.


          Lorne Shantz

          OK, as a followup. I could never get my icons to show on Nova..However the way I regained control, was deleted the cache for the specific app. Both launchers. Upon reboot it asked me which one I wanted to use. I had reduced the screen resolution already so chose the Trebuchet one and it has been fine ever since. I just know it will crash if I try to increase the screen resolution.

    Thank you! Method 1 worked, but if not mentioned in previous comments (or if it was just me) I had to completely re setup all my apps on my homepages. Minor setback, just time consuming, but again thank you so much!

    Trebuchet has Google search app dependency. If you enable it, the launcher works without issues.
