Default AOSP SMS on Sense

Is it possible to push the aosp mms.apk to system, fix permissions, and then delete the Sense messaging apk. I won't to replace the Sense sms with aosp, which I have from the play edition roms. This was possible on my old Galaxy S3. Anybody know?

I can confirm this is possible. I pulled the aosp messaging apk which is named Mms.apk out of a GPE rom. The apk is located in system/priv-app/. I copied the stock messaging app and placed it on my external card as a backup. I then deleted the stock messaging app which is found in system/priv-app. I ut the aosp in that directory and changed permissions to Owner - R/W, Group - R, Others - R, and then installed it.

Kitkat has a built in feature to allow you to set a default messaging app just like you can set a default launcher. You can just install the AOSP messaging app and set it as default.
