I'm a lil new to replacing system apps, but I read up on this and by all accounts, it should have worked.

Using adb to push the files previously linked to /system/app then rebooting yielded the existing (AOSP?) Calendar still being installed/displayed/used.

Noticed the pushed files had different names.

Renamed source files to match target files and re-pushed. Rebooted. Calendar no longer shows up in application listing.

Used Root Explorer to locate files in /system/app (currently mounted r/w) and tried to install the .apk's; installation ends with msg "Application not installed" with a "done" button to click.

used adb shell to rm the existing Calendar.apk and Calendar.odex, TouchWizCalendarProvider.odex/.apk and TouchWizCalendar.odex.apk and adb reboot.

pushed TouchWizCalendarProver.odex/.apk & TouchWizCalendar.odex/.apk to /sdcard; launched Root Explorer, copied all 4 files to /system/app/ and rebooted.

No "Calendar" or "TouchWizCalendar" or "TWCalendar" etc etc in applications list.

Use Root Explorer to navigate to /system/app/ and try to install said applications and result says "Application Not Installed"

Any help is appreciated.

Does anyone have the Memo app?

Flashed nero v3 and it didnt have it!

Also, i had some important info in there. Will it be there when i push the apk to the sysytem/app folder? My sd card still has everything from before I flashed.
