I have a logcat if someone wants to look at it
Once UniMessagebin.apk is renamed to UniMessagebin(old).apk, the system will terminate the apk. Upon setting LGMessage.apk and setting permissions then rebooting, the system will immediately recognize it as the messaging app.
I experimented with porting the g3 apks together with the odex files, and what ultimately happened was that no changes occured. Then when I tried without the .odex the changes began taking into effect. I was able to port almost all the g3 apps and interface files, except for a handful, by simply knowing where the files should be copied, renaming old files, copying the new files to destination folder, setting permissions then rebooting
