I am using an Android phone with Root access. I have an app called App Quarantine ROOT/FREEZE, which can freeze or quarantine unwanted apps in Android. I mistakenly use this app to quarantine the Launcher.

As soon as I quarantine the Launcher, the Android desktop becomes black. When I try to reboot, it stuck at the boot up screen with logo.

How to recover an Android phone if the Launcher has been mistakenly quarantined? How to recover the Launcher?

  • Can you get to recovery? You can reset your phone from there – maxpesa Dec 23 '14 at 17:51

Some phone models have an emergency factory reset button at the back(inside the back cover) of the phone. It looks like a pinhole. Try inserting a pin there. I hope it would work.

I had the same problem once. but I could access the notification drawer. and I had a battery booster installed. So , I clicked it and clicked the rating button. It went directly to Google play and find the app's page and open it. You can unfreeze it then.
