It seems that TB is good for integrating most updates but on a few important ones using Google services it seems to break the device.

What has everyone else done to integrate updates to save on space?

--Install root explorer
--Go to /data/app/ search for " com.google.android.gms-1.apk"
--Rename it to "PrebuiltGmsCore.apk"
--now cut the apk and then paste in /system/priv-app/
--make sure permissions are -rw--r--r
-- done
--hit THANKS

Im guessing the procedure stays the same for most other apps? Except some get renamed and go in system/app?

Also what about apps with an odex file? Just move the app/apk the odex files doesn't get touched does it?

the apps downloaded from play store or any other sites are always deodexed so if ur rom is odexed then delete the odex file u want to move apk of and then move apk ....like if u want to move prebuildgmscore.apk in odexed rom then 1st delete its .odex file in system/app and then move apk and set permissions and reboot and thanks
