Question [Q]How can I remove and replace stock apps?

I'm running CyanogenMod 11, and I wanted to remove the stock camera, I found alot of links on google to do it through Terminal Emulator but It never works. also I want to replace it with the camera from the stock rom, and if I try to install that the app never installs properly. Any help would be appreciated.

HTC ReZound-CyanogenMod 11

You won't get a Sense camera to work on a non-sense ROM, just doesn't work, so you won't get the stock Rezound camera to work on CM.

If you like a different camera app, just install it, and if you REALLY want it in the system, use something like Ultimate Backup or Titanium Backup to make it a system file, and associate camera with it. You could also remove the stock camera app if you want, but why?

I don't like the redundancy, and it saves space on the the device. Its frozen for now but I'd rather exercise my android more than that.

Fair enough... You can remove a system app with either of the two programs I mentioned above as well.
