Launcher and Icons after Oreo Update

My Tab4 8 finally updated to Oreo a few days ago, but now I want to try a different launcher other than the default.   My tablet works just fine, but I don't want to take any chances on possibly turning it into a brick because it now chokes on a particular launcher!


1.  Has anyone had any problems with a particular launcher after their tablet updated from Nougat to Oreo? 

2.  Is the ubiquitous Nova still a good choice, or is there now a preferred one for Lenovo tablets with Oreo?  I'm interested specifically in options involving the desktop/homescreen folders I have several similar apps squirreled in.  I can now change the shape of the app icons, but the folders remain circles.


Thanks for any suggestions!

I've been using Action Launcher before and after the upgrade and everything is working just fine.

What's DOS?

I use Nova on my Tab 4 10 and it works dandy.

Re: Launcher and Icons after Oreo Update

This is only my first really mid-range (even if it's low-mid-range). Is that kind of launcher problem common enough to warrant the precaution? I've only ever installed 3rd party launchers when the stock is missing key functions, like an app drawer - and that's mostly been on phones.
