    I have Verizon fios at home. And I stream movies from my account. And now they have redbox by Verizon. And it has something about the license. Won't let me stream movies on those apps.

    Download root browser lite by JRummy, navigate to /data/app, find the FIOS app, long press it, press copy, swipe to the left, then press paste. That will move it to your internal SD Card. From there you can upload it from your phone or move it to your computer and upload it there. Do you have a Dropbox or other file host account?

    If you can change or keep it from checking if the device is rooted.

    Once you root your phone
    Run those apps
    Make a backup
    Send the backups to me
    Make sure you save Data
    Maybe i can figure it out for you
    I dont know about this exactly but its a challenge.

    I wanted to see them in a working condition from your phone so maybe can make it work after you root.
    But i think the issue is in the odex file
    My phone wont open odex properly
    But i have a laptop now i can use
    Have a couple things to get installed
