I found nice memo, dialler, calendar at Android Market.

Under system/app, there is memo, dialler, calendar but cannot remove it. How can I remove and replace with my selection? Tq

Tq very much for all suggestion. I've root my Mini, using emanoN v5. I install my selected apps as usual but it not replace with existing apk such as dialler. Which mean, original dialler still at same places. No change with my selection apk

open es file explorer go to aetting check all the root options

go the root of your device by keeping your finger pressed on star button

then go to system, then go to app, copy the apk file in that folder you want to install

I had try exactly as your advice to install dialler but it install as a second dialler. Is there anything i would missed up something? I tried rename same as original dialler but when install, on portion where we can cancel or install, it still show its original name. I realized all .apk in system/apps have it twin file (.odex) which I believe to differentiate the system apk and normal apk. Does need do something on this?

Use systemapp remover to remove any app from the ROM. Of course, always be careful when removing system apps.
