adb push whatever.apk /system/app/ (do the same with the .odex file)
Just copy the files from your sd to the system folder and reboot.
Old thread resurrected!

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.
