    Hi,
    There is an app on your MI5 called security.
    Open this and go to permissions - Autostart
    Enable your launcher and all should be working fine :)

    I'm using Nova launcher. If you use the same you could go the the settings of Nova launcher and set the default screen.
    This is all I did to make it work.
    Maybe you could try to reboot your phone but I don't know that is useful.

    (There is an app 'Launcher Manager' in the play store where you quickly can switch)

    I have but it already worked with the official China and global version.
    When I had the China version installed I maybe added my launcher (Nova launcher) also to the:
    settings - advanced (or extra) settings - Battery and performance - Battery usage for apps - Choose apps
    (Because I'm on the Dutch version the names could be a bit different)


    You could try this also.

    Because I like it more :)
    For example I don't have all the app on the home screen (like Apple has).
