I used Root Explorer to extract the files, then moved them to /data/preload, then changed the permissions using adb. I think I got it correct. How can I tell if the stickers are installed correctly? What uses them? I saw a comment about the gallery but I can't see where that uses them?

Thanks!
Take a pic and edit it. If you can use the stickers you see in folder and the apps are install then I assume all went well.

Apparently all went well. I have the apps and the stickers work.

What about tar? Should it have been available?

I know nothing of a tar. I'm not an expert. I was just able to follow the post. Sorry.

Default Couldn't install apps from adb

Everything in the op worked up to the point where I tried to install the Flashlight and Calculator apks. I got the following error-

pm install /data/preload/Flashlight.apk
pkg: /data/preload/Flashlight.apk
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INVALID_URI]

I was able to use a file manager to find the apks in the /data/preload/ folder and install them through android.

Is this enough to receive any OTAs? Would I need to convert them to system apps?
