I did not like seeing a drag queen, a woman in leotards, and services I dont haveon my home screen. It was my final straw. I included a picture of ugly ru paul and clean wolf launcher. I am not endorsing wolf launcher. Use at your own risk.
So I went down the rabbit hole last night.
Looks like scaled back version of Old shield interface. One row has all your apps. Then a second row for "favorite apps". Most basic, simple, and uncustomizable. It works. There's NO ADS. It looks like what your used to. Available on app store.
Wolf &ATV launcher
ATV Launcher is good, but last updated 3 years ago. Wolf Launcher is a posted/updated version of this. Wolf is available on play store. But it crashed on me 1 time. That one time was enough.
Wolf is available from some douche nozzle on youtube. I was leery trying apps that are not on play store, source force or other reputable sites. There are hundreds of reviews on reddit (mostly from fire tv users). I scanned it with 2 different anti viruses. It IS NOT on play store.
I love it. You make categories. Control icon sizes, you need to do some USB debugging to get widgets working. Personally don't bother. Only widget i got working was weather. All it did was take up space on screen. You can do custom backgrounds, I
