I tried the alpha release of the Jolla launcher on my nexus 4 with cyanogenmod 11 nightly build from 20140701. The launcher crashes right after launch. Can't get it to work. Is there a way I can send a crash report or something?

Maybe you are using ART rather than Dalvik VM? Jolla Launcher will currently crash on startup under ART...

Hi @zuh could you please explain a little more? Is there a 'how to' regarding this issue? What is ART? and how to use it? I think it would be helpful to explain and to provide hints how to solve or work around.

There is no 'known issue' for this on the release page: https://together.jolla.com/question/44587/jolla-launcher-alpha-release/

ART is an alternative Java virtual machine for Android. It can be selected from developer settings. IIRC Dalvik should still be the default.

Can you get logcat output and post it somewhere for us to see?

Added to the 'known bug' section of the release notes: https://together.jolla.com/question/44587/jolla-launcher-alpha-release/
