    Found this on XDA...(xda-developers - View Single Post - Razr M Launcher,Circle Widgets , Notification Count, and few stock app on Raz)


    In case your 3D Circle Widget doesn't work after reboot try this

    instructions for noobs

    1. make a copy of the Razr M homescreen.apk
    2. change the .apk extension to .zip
    3. extract using winrar or winzip
    4. locate the files 'libnative_renderer.so' & 'libtexture_mem.so' inside the folder 'armeabi' under lib folder
    5. copy both files to system\lib folder and overwrite any existing files and set permissions rw r r
    6. REBOOT
    7. Install 3d circles and weather in any order

    Seems that the lib files for the new launcher are different than the ones in the stock JB launcher, so the new launcher fails with the circles widget.

    I'm about to try this fix.

    OK, so there's an Atrix version and a M version out there (actually many copies of both), and it's possible we're dealing with crossed files.

    I'm so close to FDR and starting over, but the link on XDA and post I referenced shows using the lib files to fix compatibility. I am still trying to get them across to my phone from the APK.

    Edit: I used Root Browser to simply extract them on the phone, then copied them to the Lib folder in System, changed permissions and ownership, and added the CirclesWidget, it worked perfectly. Now I am rebooting.


    AND THIS WORKED!!

    Awesome... So it sounds like improper files and settings. Thank gawd that's done. Now on to total droid forum domination and moderator of the year, lol.

    Re: How to get the REAL Circles widget on OG RAZR

    I'm responding cause I'm seeing posts about delete this, move that. I'm on the JB leak from Christmas, have a RAZR maxx, stock and rooted. I'm using the RAZR M homescreen, circles widget, favorites, and weather apks. I downloaded them sometime back in October cause I used them for a bit with ICS so I don't remember exactly where I got them. Anyway, all I did was install them as regular apks, (find them in a folder I have on my sdcard, tap and install). I then used titanium backup to make the homescreen, circles widget, and weather system apps. Reboot and everything works fine. I didn't have to move the original homescreen config files or anything. My circles widget hasn't caused any problems whether it was a user app or a system app. I used it as a system app the last 2 days with no problems with 4 locations in it. I gotta believe those having problems either have bad downloads or aren't installing them right.

    ROFLOL!

    Well, I don't know about Moderator of the year, but I'm definitely feeling a little domineering...

    I've rebooted 3 times, and every time the CirclesWidget is working without any intervention. I also checked and GPS toggle is still working, so I think we've got this one licked.

    Now to put it into a step-by-step that others can follow.

    I'm going to extract the two lib files and add them as separate downloads to simplify things for others. This way they don't have to make copies and extract and then try to find them.

    Thanks yaterml, Krenzy, YellowJacket, avenged61973, GoCliffGo05, hobby31 and bosshog85 (think I got everyone), for all your input. If we do this right, everyone will be able to enjoy their phones just a little bit more.

    I don't doubt there's something to what you're saying...still, I have them working now and the ONLY thing I changed to get them working properly was the lib files mentioned above. Also, I am not using TIBU, so I didn't have a "one-button" solution for making those apps into system apps (which does all the moving for you - hence why you don't recall doing any moving...) Another thing is that yaterml mentioned not making CirclesWidget. or Weather.apk into a system app as he said there's some issues.

    I am up and fully functional now. Next step is to duplicate this on the wife's RAZR using the steps I know worked. If it is successful, then I'll write the steps out into a class.
