    Its how you set permissions in Linux by command line. Its effectively-rw-r--r-

    Download terminal emulator. Then run the following commands to install the stock launcher.

    su

    mount -o remount rw /system

    cp /directory with the launcher.apk/ launcher2.apk /system/app/

    cd /system/app

    chmod 644 launcher2.apk && reboot.

    the phone will reboot and the launcher should be ready for use

    You can use any root explorer and do it. Find the app, long press it, press properties, you should be able to change permissions right there.

    the system is mounted as ro. You need to run the mount command first. You could also install the latest droidsmith update. In 0.3.10 the system partition is mounted rw
