My phone keeps reverting to builtin launcher

I use a Huawei Y625 phone running Android Kitkat. (It's not a very popular model, so it is hard to find any information about this particular phone.)

My problem with the phone is that I can't seem to change the default launcher at all. As a Huawei phone, it comes with a 'Emotion UI' interface, with a builtin home screen/launcher called 'Huawei Home'. I am trying to set Arrow as my default launcher, installed it and all, set it up as default, but everytime I reboot it keeps reverting back to Huawei Home.

I can't think of any solution. I'm not sure if removing Huawei Home would be safe (and if it is, then I have to root my phone.)

Simply changing the default launcher shouldn't be so difficult and yet here I am. What should I do?
