Can anyone who is running the 1.6 R8 version post a copy of the mms.apk fopr me please?
To install this do i just push the .apk file? If so can i get the commands to do this?
adb push c:\Mms.apk /system/app
Just adjust your windows path of where the file is.
I pushed the file and everything(icon is in the drawer, i get FC on boot) , i rebooted the phone but the texts are still not going through.... any suggestions?
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.
How do i backup the old TwMms.apk? What are the commands to pull it? Sorry, i have never done a pull before and thanks for the help!
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
adb pull /system/app/TwMms.apk ( Folder Location on Computer )
Hmm, i get a FC on the process(already reboot + factory reset) and it doesn't let me send texts still... but im willing to stick with stock but if there is a solution =D! If not thanks, loving the ROMs!
This issue is Known about even with Galaxy 1.6 regarding Mms.apk switching..
It's not my Place to say it wont work due to people getting into modding rom's & Making things work...
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.
yeah lot of people tends to miss this but quick question i just removed the twmms.apk but my quick question is how do i install the Mms.apk? i forgot how to for some strange reason i used to be able to do it right away but i forgot... i forgot the command i'm currently adb in right now but i completely forgot..
thanks BH_MAN but i already did that but for some reason i can receive messages but i can't send it......
never mind.... stupid message centre was empty....... sorry and thanks BH_MAN but i'm having trouble installing handcent sms though for some reason and multimedia messaging is not working properly... strange...
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
you are truly AWESOME!!! thanks BH_MAN
after installing the Mms.apk does it suppose to FC everytime u reboot the device?
Yup, thats what I've seen.
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
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
Ask & you shall Receive
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.
Can someone explain how to add MMS.apk using Astro
