Post [Guide] How to port system apps of other roms to ur Rom

Hey there this is my first post
For people having stock android or bored using stock music player or other such apps & want to use apps frm other Roms...Here we go
Requirements :

1- Rooted phone
2- Apk file that u want to install extracted frm other Rom
3- Root File exlorer, Mi file explorer or other root explorer

Steps:
1- Extract or download apk file u want to install
2- Put the apk file in ur system apps ie.. In file explorer> root> system> apps..

3- Long press on that file & click on install.. It'll install the apk

4- Reboot ur system... It'll show android is upgrading & optimizing apps..

If it works then enjoy if not follow the below steps...

5- Again go to the file explorer> root> system> apps..

6- Navigate to that app which u have installed

7- Long press on it & click on permissions

8- Change the permissions to rw-r-r

9- Reboot

10- Enjoy

Tested Xperia Walkman on Lava Iris 504q

Note- >It may or may not work with all apps
> U should hv space in ur root> system

Thumbs up update

Some apps don't work directly like music player as u hv one in your system.. so you have to delete the original system app then follow the above procedure

This is possible with some apk files from other phones,not with all...Some system apk's need to be modified before use on other phones to be precise they need to bee ported before use...
