Default [Q] How to port apps

Hi,

Wondering if there is any guide on how to port apps. Love Samsung 4.3 Music Player and love CM11. Would like to try to make them work together.

Thanks
Staljin

Won't work, you'd also have to decompile most of Samsung's framework, which is not possible.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

And if u did. Well. It is illegal as it isn't open source. Not open source also means u can't decompile it. It doesn't have a source.

Well illegality won't be an issue if I keep music player to myself. Doing it is a far more challenging.

Can't you just copy the .apk over?
Samsung Galaxy SIII (GT-i9300)
ROM: Cyanogenmod NIGHTLY 20140102
Kernel: Googy Max2 2.1.1
