[Q] Port pure google system apps from other device to MTK6589 phone
Hi all, I have a Chinese clone of Galaxy S4 called No.1 S6 with MTK6589 Cpu and Android 4.2.1 (Odexed Rom), well, I tried to replace some system app like contacts, phone and mms with the same apps taken from the Slim bean 4.2.2 Rom for the Google Nexus 4 that has the same screen resolution. I odexed the slim bean apks with dexopt-wrapper as explained here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1462648
, I signed them with auto-sign software, so I put them into system/app folder with right permissions, deleting old apks first, rebooted the phone, wiped cache in recovery and when the phone booted the apk I replaced was gone, so I think there's a compatibility problem between my system apps and nexus 4 ported apps, maybe I have to take the slim bean (or other ROMS, whatever) sources and edit the apks and make them compatible with my phone...I wanna ask u if it's really possible to make this kind of replacement/porting, I'm a noob of course, can you say me if there are tutorials that explain how to port system apps from other devices with different software? Thank you in advance, I hope to write in the right section...
