How to launch a second launcher with an intent similar to opening an external app?

http://stackoverflow.com – I made a custom launcher application that I'm trying to get a button to launch the original launcher. Right now it looks like this: public void click(View v) { Intent intent = getPackageManager().getLaunchIntentForPackage("com.android.launcher2"); startActivity(intent); } Is it not possible to launch a launcher the same way I launch other external apps?
