To do this:
- In Root Explorer, copy the apk file you want to put in /system/app
- Navigate to the /system/app directory
- Tap the Mount R/W button on the top right
- Tap Paste
- Scroll down to the pasted apk, long press on it and select Permissions (you'll see 9 check boxes when you do this)
- Check the Read and Write buttons for User, and only the Read boxes next to Group and Others, then tap OK (once you're done, the read/write permissions under the app name should be the same as all the other apps listed (rw-r--r--))
I have been trying to install the buddies now apk using the method above. The problem that I am having is that I can't modify the permissions to (rw-r--r--). I everytime I delete the file it reappears each time I exit and reopen the system/app folder. I can't uninstall it and it won't allow me to reinstall it either. I get an error message stating that "Activity Not Found - com.sec.android.widgetapp.buddiesnow" when I tried to launch the program. What's the problem. It is the only apk file in the system/app folder with the wrong permissions. I tried to overwrite the odex file with matching permissions. It refused to overwrite the file. What else can I do?
