System apps or apps in general are capable of storing information within a database. My problem is now: for example the Launcher app does store settings like the amount of apps and their position on the homescreen, widgets etc. into a database on the data partition.
These settings are usually just read from the database again even if there is a new Launcher app replacement with different settings for the homescreen.
My question is now:
Is there any method(via shell) to trigger an update or re-read of this apps database, so that the new values from the new Launcher replacement are taken into account without just deleting the whole database or messing around with the current database?
