Is there any way to get the S5's Messaging App installed onto my Note3 (running official 4.4.2 NC2) without being rooted?

Have you tried installing it as a normal apk with unknown sources allowed?

I just tried that, got the .apk from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2690997 it installs fine, but the app FC's all over the place and uninstalls itself after reboot. The thread says to move it to system/app or priv-app, but we can't do that because there is no root yet for NC2

Dank, I did try that. I got the apk from the post right below yours. Had some problems.

I tried the same thing. I was quite disappointed when I got all the FCs.

I was thinking, its definitely going to be tough to get it into /system/app without mounting it RW (root necessary). This is just a thought, would an update.zip containing the apk be able to be flashed in the stock recovery?

Can you do that without being rooted??
*(And more importantly), what happens if that goes wrong?

I think stock recovery has an option to flash an "update.zip". What happens if it goes wrong? I have no idea. I've never had to install a system app without root, I'm just trying to think of something that might work. I mean root browsers and adb are ruled out. Other than flashing, I don't know of many other ways to get an app in there. >.<
