Here's the setup I have for my phone right now:

  • I am running on a custom ROM that has Trebuchet for the home application.
  • The custom ROM is ICS-based.
  • I have somewhat successfully gotten Google Now (the Jelly Bean feature) to work on my phone.
  • I decided to use Home2 Shortcut to map double-clicking on my home button to launch Google Now's voice input.

The above setup works fine aside from a single caveat. When I view the Recent Apps menu while inside another application, I can see Trebuchet on the list. This is not the behavior I was looking for and from what I can tell, it is appearing on the Recent Apps because I've set Home2 Shortcut as my new home app (to handle the double-clicks) and then Home2 Shortcut opens Trebuchet as regular application.

So yeah, now I want to know how I can make Trebuchet not appear on Recent Apps. Is there some kind of manifest-editing that I can do to make Trebuchet act that way? If not, what other approaches can I try?

  • Umm I think mine is a different case.

  • Trebuchet is CM's own version of the stock ICS launcher, have you not tried the CyanogenMod forums about this issue?

  • I don't think my ROM is pure CM though. It's a cross between AOKP and CM I believe.
