Post Tutorial: Putting S-Health back onto the S5

  • An S5 that is rooted, and no longer has S-Health installed. In my case, I wanted to turn a "Custom" status S5 into an "Official" status one instead.
  • A file explorer (ES is used here).
  • The stock SHealth3.apk, HealthService.apk, and HealthService.odex backed up.
    If you don't have them, I made a copy.
  1. Make sure you have no installed S Health or HealthService installed on your phone.
  2. Copy SHealth3.apk, HealthService.apk, and HealthService.odex from your phone's storage to /data/app .
  3. Set each file's permission's individually to rw-r--r-- . (Hit the Back key then choose Refresh to verify the app icons are now visible).
  4. Reboot your phone... check its status, which should list as Official.

ES File Explorer in action

As an added bonus, once you manually upgrade S Health and HealthService, you can choose to Restore any previous backups... I never allow S Health to backup prior to restoring (because there's only lousy data to back up).

Did you mean, our Device's status will became Official from Custom?
Or you're just talking about S-Health app?
