    adb push c:\Mms.apk /system/app


    Just adjust your windows path of where the file is.

    I did this: I renamed the mms.apk to TwMms.apk and pushed it to the /system/app folder on the phone, then restarted. Once you do this, you will have replaced the stock twiz mms app for the one in 1.6.

    One thing is that you get a fc ever reboot, but its just once (at startup). It's been working great for me.

    PS. Please backup the old TwMms.apk app.

    To fix the FC, you will need to a Factory Rest, as that is stale cache left from the twmms.apk... Should fix it anyways... if not, well... I tried haha

    at the risk of sounding like complete jackass, do i actually put the parentheses into the command line? either way, i do not think it is working on my phone. i tried using (AND NOT using) the parentheses and got a "Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.25" and some kind of command menu/explanation script. However, when i do not attempt to specify a ( folder location on computer ), it shows me a long list of files that tells me " 163 files pulled. 0 files skipped"

    plz help. i want to get rid of the stock mms and install a diff't one. (like this one from bluey's post)

    You would want to type: adb pull /system/app/TwMms.apk c:\Phone Backup Files\TwMms.apk

    That would put the file in a folder called "phone backup files" on your c drive.

    Did you rename the Mms.apk to TwMms.apk before pushing correct? If not...

    Now take the Mms.apk & rename to TwMms.apk, then
    adb push (Location of the Newly renamed TwMms.apk ) /system/app

    I can't install the mms.apk on to my device. I tried both using appinstaller from the market and using the command prompt. Advice?

    BH_MAN just told me today but after u removed the Touchwiz message from the phone you have to change the new Mms.apk to TwMms.apk and push it through adb

    after u remove don't adb shell in just put this in

    adb push c:\ where ever the TwMms.apk is located /system/app

    i saved the TwMms.apk to the c: and here's how i did it

    cd androidsdk\tools
    adb push c:\ TwMms.apk /system/app

    PS: if u don't understand what i'm trying to tell u (i'm not sure if i made it clear) so if u want go page 6 of this post BH_MAN explained it in more detail

    I renamed the file and now I'm having trouble pushing the file or using appinstaller to install the renamed apk. I'm going to keep trying.
