Default How to change permissions on a system app?

I have downloaded a system app, but it fails to install, someone to me I need to change the permissions on it? I have purchased root explorer from the market, but now what do I do to change the permissions?

Navigate to file location of the file. Change your mount permissions by toggling R/W. Long press the file. Select Permissions. Change Permissions to your liking. Profit!

I suggest you do the homework about how changing permissions on a system app may affect your device. Also make sure you have a full backup ready to go to if needed. Just a word of caution.

Root explorer, this might not be free but its the only and best file manager for android (my opinion) ...if you want something that could do the job you gotta pay for it.
