    Hi all -

    I recently upgraded to SC2.4 but find that I miss some of the old apps that came on the phone originally, specifically the native alarm clock. I've copied the ClockPackage.apk, DualClock.apk, and DualClock2.apk (along with the associated .odex files) to System\App, but it doesn't appear to allow me to run the installs. What am I missing here?

    Thx!

    Mike

    Try a reboot when done?

    I'll try that momentarily....I'm hoping that will also refresh the contents of the system\media\ringtones folder as I copied some older ringtones there as well and, while they play via Root Explorer, no joy adding them in the alarm clock app. :(

    I'm not completely sure this is correct, but as far as I know, you can't run an odex app with a deodexed system, even if you copy the odex file. You would need a deodexed version of the app.


    Again, take this with a grain of salt, and hopefully Nitsuj, Saps, or one of the other experts will give you a more definitive answer.

    thx seanatsb....I also vaguely remember about having to add things to \system\app via ADB or from CWM before they'd work.

    Good point. I'm going to edit above. I just installed the deodexed calculator using CWM by flashing the zip, and it worked. So there was no compatability issues with Froyo.

    Have you tried installing straight from the SD card? Just click it in Root Explorer.

    I don't know, I haven't done this a lot. I have carried Need for Speed and ThinkFree Office with me through many ROMs and i've installed off SD or used Titanium Backup.

    I hated the Touchwiz alarm, didn't seem to work sometimes for me. I think AlarmClockPlus V2 is waaaaaay mo better.
