Did you try changing the permissions for both apps when you copied them to the /system/apps folder?

the permissions need to match the other files in the folder rw-r--r--
(all the read boxes need to be checked and just the owner write box needs to be checked)

I can confirm these files do work.

Thank you mhk!

Confirmed working with Smooth Ice ROM and Exchange 2003 server. So far so good. Wish I hadn't spent the $10 on EnhancedEmail...

I'm trying to get these email apps to work on LR2.6 but the emailgoogle.apk wont launch. It breifly opens before it FC.

I have tried fixing permissions but still no joy.

The reason why I have been lookign to change from the stock email.apk is that I couldn't get exchange to work properly with my work email which I did have working on a previous ROM.

Any ideas what I could do to get it to launch? Should this work on GT-i9100?

Works for me on NexusMOD UCLD2. It took me a few tries to get it to work though. I had to clear data for the built in email, then rename them, install the new ones and reboot. Let it settle. The first few times it would force close all the time, but after clearing data and then rebooting, it worked.

I finally managed to create some flashable zips that work, so you can move from Samsung email to Google/ICS email app much easier. All you need to do is go into manage apps, Email and clear data and cache (if any), reboot into recovery and flash ICS_EmailGoogle_update.zip. It will rename Email.apk, Exchange.apk and SocialHub.apk and install the new apks. To revert back to stock, again go to manage apps, Email and clear data and cache (if any) and boot into recovery and flash ICS_Stock_Email.zip. If you don't clear data, when you switch back and forth you will get FC's. I only use this with Exchange, so I can't verify if it works with other providers, but it works great for me.

I realize you can do all this with a rooted file explorer, but with the amount of times I seem to have to do it, this is easier...

As always, no guarantees, if your phone blows up, I'm not responsible. If you are curious, open up the zips and check out the scripts, just so you can see that I'm not deleting your system partition...

Enjoy!
