You should remove the attached file in post #6. Tapatalk Pro is a payed app. That's a no-go on XDA!
Current phone: Samsung Galaxy S3
Current ROM: ParanoidAndoid

I added all to data/app,but tried system/app,too and then signed

But if I flashed the rom not all apps shown at phone!
What is the problem,why some apps works and other not?
Rootexplorer,Titanium Backup,Autokiller and Linpack works,but
Tapatalk Pro and Zeam Launcher or other Launcher don`t works!
try this thing maybe will work : rename 'tapatalk pro' to 'tapatalkpro' -no free space there like in Linux
