    you probably cant install it cause theres not enough space in the /system folder. if you want to delete some stock apps use systemapp remover. and if you want to delete some other stuff (just be careful what you delete to not brick your phone!) use root explorer and navigate to the /system folder

    the systemapp remover allows you to delete apps only. use the root explorer and then navigate to the folder you want to delete ;)
