Motorola Razr M Launcher and Circle Clock Widget for All Android Phones

Have you ever wished to get the circle clock weather widget on your Android phone? This is one of the most beautiful clock weather widgets with cool animation. Well, here is the default Motorola launcher and circle clock widget from RAZR M. There is nothing special about the launcher as it looks like a normal holo launcher. The clock widget, however, is just an example of how beautiful a homescreen widget can be! You can convert the circle digital clock to analog clock by swiping finger  upward or downward on the clock circle. You can also add another city for weather in the same way.

You can download all the APKs from the link below and install them as you install a normal APK file. No need to deodex or sign the apps. Unzip the downloaded file and copy the whole folder, or the APKs to your phone’s internal or external SD Card. Go to Settings> Security on your device and check the Unknown Sources option there.

It will not replace the stock launcher of your phone. It will just give you another alternative homescreen launcher to which you an switch or exit any time. Install all apk files, then press Home  button of your phone to launch it and select “Homescreen”. Please, remember that you cannot place the weather clock widget on any third party launcher homescreen. The widget only works with Motorola Home launcher activated.

Note:  The launcher app is compatible only with Android phones with Ice Cream Sandwich and above and requires no root.

    Root your phone, install TWRP or CWM and then you will be able to install any custom ROM.

  • http://www.droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Just download the apk files, copy them to your phone and install them.

  • Jay Gross

    I am not tech savy but I would like to get this on my phone. I have a samsung galaxy. Is this able to be installed on my phone and if so how do I do it?

  • Damian Kempter

    I have installed all of the apk’s, however the launcher does not seem to work. Attempting to access the launcher results in an error message “Unfortunately, Homescreen has stopped”. Re-installing the launcher does not seem to help. My device is a Google Nexus 7 (2012).

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    When you install an app the permissions are set appropriately by phone itself. Try to clear launcher apps’s data and cache from Settings> Application manager.

  • Adriano Silva

    yes, I installed the apk launcher and widgets, but when I click the home and choose the motorola homescren select the widget crashes the launcher and back to TouchWiz

    have to do some alteration in permission? RW-R-R

    Thanks for listening

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    The widget work only with Motorola launcher.

  • Adriano Silva

    not working on galaxy grand 9082L

    lock when you put the widget on launcher

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi, I don’t think replacing the app would make much difference. Anyway, install this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.infolife.appbackup&hl=en

    Open this apps settings and check show system apps option. Then backup the app that your are going to replace. Thus you can later restore that app.

  • Distorken

    Hi, I have a Motorola Razr xt910 with JB 4.1.2. I install CircleWidget3D, Homescreen and Weather. When I tried to install HomeConfig I got this message (Replace app? This is a system app. All your previous data will be saved.) Should I install it or leave it like I did? If I install it, I can go back?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hahaha! No, my friend. That’s a watermark that I have put on the screenshot so that others do might not steal my bandwidth. The launcher and widgets are clean :)

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    You can find a custom ROM with that widget but for that you’ll have to root your phone and install a custom recovery.

  • Hani

    Thanks for your reply, I still have an important question:

    – I do not really want to change launcher, I just want to instal the circles asbefor upgrading to JB!! is it possible to find the appropriate files some where?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi Hani, the widgets require the same version of launcher that has provided above. Install the launcher too and try again. On Motorola phones this issue is common, on others it runs fine but with the launcher.

  • Hani

    Hi there, I’m not a pro! so I just downloaded, then extracted and installed only the circle.apk
    But, when inserting on my first page it said “the circles is not supported on 3rd party..” I have a Motorola Razr xt910, with Fido in Canada.
    Could you pls. help me what to do?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    To uninstall, go to Settings> Application> slide to ALL tab, find the file and uninstall from there. To go back to stock Homescreen, press the Home button and select your launcher.

    How do you uninstall it or reset to original home screen?

  • Ron

    Thanks for posting this! I’ve upgraded my Droid Razr Maxx, though I’ve been noticing my battery life draining significantly. Looking at the battery usage, Android OS seems to be the culprit. Any one else noticing this? No new apps installed and nothing else that I know of changed. Android 4.1.2 -> 98.72.16.XT912.

    Thanks!

    Hi Chen, when the system apps are protected by signature, they will not allow you over-write them. You must delete the conflicting app before you could install another. The present have been ported to non-Motorola phones and they do not bear required signature.

    Without rooting your phone, you will not be able to install the app provided in our package.

  • Chen

    Hi Mr. Rakesh, I also tried to install the included Weather.apk, but it says cannot be installed because an existing file with same signature is already in my phone. My phone is Motorola Atrix 2, with that, i cant use the weather app on the circles widget. Do i need to delete the system one using root file managers? I’m not rooted, thanks!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    I just tested it and it’s working fine with GPS. Try rebooting your device.

  • metecan

    Gps toggle force closes the launcher. I use JB OTA 4.1.2 gsm eu rom on my Droid Razr. Anyways to fix that? Thanks..

    Many thanks mate, I will do that! :D

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    You need no special preparations. Just download, extract the zip, copy the 4 apk files to your phone by connecting it to computer via USB cable, and install them. Doesn’t matter in what order.Cheers and welcome to Android!

    Hi, I’ve just bought the cellphone Razr Maxx, which are the steps to install the Razr M apk files? I’m new on Android…could you make a step-by-step, please?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Raphael-Dos-Reis-Oliveira/1616864436 Raphael Dos Reis Oliveira

    I just bought the Razr Maxx, I’m new on Android, I’ve downloaded the zip files, do I have to do something before installing these .apk files? Is there an order to install it? could you explain step-by-step please?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi, I do not think it can be fixed. Just as you are not able to the circle widget from this launcher with any other launcher, the contact widget from your phone launcher is behaving the same way. It’s a little game of gain and loss- the price you have to pay to have those lovely circles!

  • disqus_DqNEJ1wq38

    Everything worked fine on my original Razr once I loaded the Homescreen apk. I guess my only complaint now is that my contact widget that I was using that came with the phone will not drop down to show the rest of my favorites. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Same here, clicking the weather circle goes right to Accuweather. Just wish I could choose a different app (like weatherbug). if I want “more details” on the weather it wants to open chrome or firefox.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Weird!! I can see the weather page on my S3 and Note 2. Just added new screenshots.

  • http://www.facebook.com/eric.a.borchert Eric Allen Borchert

    Tried twice, once before Jelly Bean, once After. Before on ICS it installed but would not show up in the widgets list. After the JB OTA update I installed it & it showed up on widgets list but when dragged to screen it said Widget does not support 3rd party home screens. My Maxx is not rooted or using any custom rom, just straight up what Motorola has given me. I am not TOO disappointed with the launcher altogether, as most all launchers have their pros/cons. I do like that I can swipe to the far left and pull up a quick settings page and adjust wi-fi, gps, airplane, bluetooth from there, ridding my need for a power switch widget that does the same thing. I also like that I can add or remove screens like you can with custom launchers like GO or Nova. My only complaint about the circles widget is I cannot touch the weather circle and have it open a different weather app like weather bug.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    homeconfig.apk did not install on your phone because you tried to install on a Motorola phone. As for the circle widget, it is definitely the best clock weather widgets ever but it runs only with the moto launcher. that is sad. Try to apply the widget with the stock Motorola launcher on your phone. Does it work?

  • http://www.facebook.com/eric.a.borchert Eric Allen Borchert

    Installed Yesterday on my Droid Razr Maxx after the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update and so far they work just fine. Circles is one of the most impressive Widgets I have seen in a while. I tried to install homeconfig.apk but it would not install it and said it was not needed. Thanks

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Unzip the files to your desktop and then copy the extracted folder to your phone. Open file manager and install the APK files present there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/LengZaiLoon Bryan Yun

    i downloaded the files, and i copy in to my phone, is Zip files and i dunno what’s the next step, Please help me!

  • jaxonn

    it actually works on my Note 2. however the Motorola Launcher will crash when i sweep to the most left page (Settings). therefore i will need to always re-launch the home screen.
    error message: “Unfortunately, Homescreen has stopped.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/damon.rice.10 Damon Rice

    worked perfectly on mu US Cellular S2, a huge thank you:D

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi Billy,
    The Motorola widgets work only when you switch to Motorola home launcher provided in the download zip. Install the launcher and launch it by pressing the home button and select the new launcher. You will then be able to apply the widget.

    Running Beanstown JB 4.1.1 on my GS3 and the circles widget won’t install on my screen. i keep getting the not supported on 3rd party home screens error. Any suggestions?

  • Pamela Meek

    it will not download the weather part on my Droid 4 because it says it already exists? how do I fix that?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    No

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Then there is no reason why it will not be installed. I would check it, anyways.

    Well, I have tested all APKs on my Galaxy s3 and everything working fine. Can’t figure out why you have not been able to install them all.
    Is you phone on ICS or JB?
