    Yes I did. But in my data/apps home screen.apk and circles widget.APM were two separate files.

    I changed my circles to a system file, but it's kind of odd it doesn't work because mine worked both ways. Are You able to add other widgets to your home screen?

    Yeah, but I didn't change my circles to a system file, as I only saw posted to change the home screen one. I'll go move the circles widget to system.

    Alright the homescreen, circles, and blur-weather apks all got moved to system/apps, but I'm still getting the same error.

    You might want to try reinstalling the circle widget and see if that works. I'm honestly not sure why that's happening.

    OK because it worked just fine until I moved stuff around. How do I go about reinstalling it?

    You will have to delete the circle widget files and reinstall from the zip you originally downloaded.

    1. Go to system>app and rename the following file:

    Weather.apk to Weather.bak

    com.motorola.homescreen.apk to homescreen.back

    2. Download and install:

    Launcher for Razr M (com.motorola.homescreen.apk)
    Weather for Razr M (weather.apk)

    - Copy launcher to system/app
    - Set permission to RW-R-R
    - Tap on each of the Apks to install them from the system/app folder with this these permissions so they write the setting to the file.
    Contrary to popular belief you don't need to install Circles as a system app and will actually cause a system lag.
    I also recommend you install notifications.apk for Razr M as well is will display a count of missed or unread messages on the system tray icon.

    Don't move circles to system app folder... It causes some errors and a lot of lag.

    This is why I recommend Titanium Backup don't need the license to use move to system app feature at least you didn't used to need it.

    Current Phone Model:
    Droid Turbo, and Nexus 6!
    OK, so I am downloading TIBU now. In the mean time, I went to System/App and I don't have a Weather.apk or com.motorola.homescreen.apk (see screen shots from Root Browser below).

    I also have a homescreen.apk in System/app, but it's the newly installed version and I didn't move it there...that's where it put itself (see below).

    I am having difficulty finding the apps installed and also the system versions. I have BOTH homescreens and can switch between them. I am also given the option to choose a default, and if I am running the M homescreen and hit the GPS off, it crashes. Once crashed, if I hit the home button I'm given the default options again.

    I just installed TIBU but can't see how to get into the file manager option.

    Let me grab root explorer fox I use es file explore.

    Check your regular app folder I assume that you will have one homescreen in that folder.

    I am going to assume since it keeps crashing on GPS toggle you still have it as a user app not a system app. Weather should be in that folder as well. If you installed it as a regular apk it puts those in the regular app folder not sure system apps.
