Default Replace system application, not wont install new apk

I searched and couldn't find an answer. I'm trying to install a different version of genie.apk than the one that came from the OTA 2.2. I uninstalled the stock version, and now when I try to install the new one through root manager, or astro, it says that application wasn't installed. Any suggestions?

Try a reboot, then install.

Try placing it in system/app using Root Explorer and launch from there.

Maybe the version you are trying isn't compatible? At any rate, you could try to push it via adb if you're familiar w/ it.

adb push GenieWidget.apk /system/app/

I'm going to learn more about ADB and try that. Also make sure if the apk I have is correct.

Yeah, I'm getting fuzzier by the day since leaning so hard on Root Explorer anymore but if you put the .apk into the sdk tools folder, you'd then boot to clockwork and mount system. Then at CMD:


cd\sdk\tools
adb shell

adb push GenieWidget.apk /system/app/
adb reboot

(note the space after .apk)

Might be wise to have somebody double check my commands by memory. Also, not sure if you could/should do the same command for GenieWidget.odex /system/app or not and if so, if it is pushed by association with the .apk or what?

You don't go into adb shell. Just adb push from the tools directory. And if it still doesn't work after that, then yeah it's not compatible. I have the clear genie widget if people need me to post it.
