@goenjoy yup i am sure

Post screenshots of your out//system/app and out//system/priv-app folders and inside the folder of your launcher in those folders, which one it is in.

Good morning @mo123 there is no app folder under /system

this is the screen of /system

and my questions is i have my own launcher i wanna add it to my source code i’m not gonna use the default launcher of the aosp which is Launcher2 nor 3 so how can do this.
i had a solution but it doesnt work for me .

i created a folder under /packages/app/Launcher
then i putted the .apk there and i have create the Android.mk file

LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)
include $(CLEAR_VARS)
LOCAL_MODULE := Launcher
LOCAL_MODULE_CLASS := APPS
LOCAL_MODULE_TAGS := optional
LOCAL_MODULE_SUFFIX := $(COMMON_ANDROID_PACKAGE_SUFFIX)
LOCAL_CERTIFICATE := platform
LOCAL_SRC_FILES := Launcher.apk
LOCAL_MODULE_OWNER := system
include $(BUILD_PREBUILT)

@Boudour mkdir vendor/amlogic/common/apps/Launcher
cp your/Launcher.apk vendor/amlogic/common/apps/Launcher/
vim Android.mk

#Launcher
LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)
	include $(CLEAR_VARS)
	LOCAL_MODULE := Launcher
	LOCAL_MODULE_CLASS := APPS
	LOCAL_MODULE_TAGS := optional
	LOCAL_BUILT_MODULE_STEM := package.apk
	LOCAL_MODULE_SUFFIX := $(COMMON_ANDROID_PACKAGE_SUFFIX)
	LOCAL_CERTIFICATE := PRESIGNED
	LOCAL_SRC_FILES := $(LOCAL_MODULE).apk
	LOCAL_DEX_PREOPT:=false	
	LOCAL_OVERRIDES_PACKAGES := Home Launcher2 Launcher3
	include $(BUILD_PREBUILT)

/build/target/product/core.mk PRODUCT_PACKAGES +=Launcher
