Help with deodexing a touchwiz app
Hello! I am trying to make the stock Samsung file manager work as a normal apk so I can use it on any ROM. Now from what I scouted around the internet I learned that I need to deodex the apk so it doesn't need the the framework dependencies anymore. I did that, but the problem is like this: I pulled the file manager from the stock 4.1.2 and I'm trying to make it work on 4.2.2. My first question is, is it possible to make it work on other Android versions (ofc higher then the one it came from). If yes can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong as I am a total noob with Android development?
I used Universal Deodexer v4 and there you can choose the Android version. I tried both 4.1 and 4.2 but theres no difference, although the app is deodexed successfully. The actual problem I stumbled across on, is that I push the apk in /system/app, fix permissions and reboot but it doesn't show up in apps manager or app drawer at all.
