If it installed, then it's SOMEWHERE... Try this: Use a root explorer to browse through /data/app and see if you see it there. Sometime if the app isn't working right or has the wrong permissions, it'll install but can't see it. Which tool did you use to sign?

The app from play store that you suggested.


Edit:
It is in /data/app with rw-r--r-- permissions so it should work.
I attached the apk just in case if you want to check some things.

Edit 2:
The SystemUI.apk has this line in the AndroidManifest.xml:
Code:
<permission android:name="com.sonymobile.permission.TASK_SWITCHER_PLUGIN_VIEW" android:protectionLevel="signatureOrSystem" />
and this one is in the TaskKiller.apk's AndroidManifest.xml:
Code:
<uses-permission android:name="com.sonymobile.permission.TASK_SWITCHER_PLUGIN_VIEW" />
the TaskKiller is asking for permission from SystemUI instead of framework-res, idk why.

I'm thinking that this has to be a system app and tied to SystemUI to function properly. It doesn't seem to have it's own interface which is why no open option when installed and no icon showing.

Exactly, but the old apk from the Japanese Z1 is installable.

Does resigning affect that much that it stops working?
