    I was trying to install a modified theme musicgoogle.apk. The stock musicgoogle.apk is now gone from my phone. I backed up the stock apk first of course, but I cannot install it, or the modified theme apk. Help!

    musicgoogle.apk needs to be in /system/app, so it can't be installed in the usual way. From the Bugless Beast FAQ ([FAQ] Bugless Beast - Pete - AllDroid Public Board - [FAQ] Bugless Beast - Pete - AllDroid Public Board - Forum):

    speaking of switching, what's the easiest way to switch apps?
    1. using root explorer (in the market) or astro (in godmode), copy the apk you desire and paste it into /system/app (replace the apk of the same name that's already there) -- you'll need to press the button on the top right that says "mount r/w".
    2. long-press on the newly pasted apk file and select "permissions".
    3. change the permissions to User: read - write, group: read, others: read
    4. when you click "okay", you should see "rw-r--r--" in the fine print under the apk name.
    5. click the "mount r/o" button, then reboot. (thank you, girluvsdroid!)

    i removed the mms.apk, alarm.apk, or some other app and am having issues now. how do i reinstall it?
    put the apk (you can get mms.apk or alarm.apk from a nandroid backup or bugless beast nandroid in /system/app) on the root of your sd card and type the following in terminal emulator (can get it from the market):

    Quote:
    su
    sysrw
    busybox cp /sdcard/*.apk /system/app
    sysro
    sync
    reboot


    where *.apk is the apk you wish to install. (thank you, armak and richie97!)
