Description (last modified by greiner)


Galaxy Nexus
Android 4.4.2
CyanogenMod 11.0-InstallerXNPQ09P
NovaLauncher 2.3

"Unknown sources" option is checked

How to reproduce

  1. On your phone go to and download the APK from there (in my case adblockplusandroid-1.2.1.apk)
  2. After the download has finished either tap on the notification or on the entry in the Downloads app to install the APK

Observed behaviour

A NovaLauncher popup appears which says (translated from German):

Restore backup

Doing that will remove the desktop-layout
of Nova and replace it with the
selected configuration. Are you sure that
you want to continue?

Cancel OK

Expected behaviour

Adblock Plus installation process starts.

  • Platform set to Android

I can no longer reproduce this issue myself when using the following environment:

Galaxy Nexus
Android 4.4.2
CyanogenMod 11.0-InstallerXNPQ25S
Nova Launcher Prime 3.0.2

However, I'm keeping this issue open because it might still occur using the environment mentioned in the issue description.
