Default Help.

I've got HTC Wildfire Buzz for a long while, so I want to update sense to a newer one but it doesn't let me replace the apk in /system/app.
Specs are the regular ones on Wildfire Buzz

You will need to follow these instructions
firstly you will need to root your buzz and set it as s-off
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1145035
but skip the rom step since you still want sense ui
then use this

hope that helps

If you want to update sense you need either an official update or a custom ROM for your device. You can't upgrade it by one app, and if your device is s-on then you cannot write any apps to the system/app folder. Read through the guides here in the general section to get an idea of what upgrading entails
