[Q] Pls. modify system/app, ended with bootloop
you can call me a fool in this case
but anyway please help..
so please, hear my whole story first, so that you can examine the solution quickly.
my phone is: samsung W gt-i8150, rom: Liquid Smooth 2.9. build 3
first story. i wanted to replace the phone.apk with the one cm 10.1 own. so i copy phone.apk from CM10.1 zip file (that i got from arco official site). i wanted to copy it to root/system/app with X-plore root manager. but i cannot copy it even with superuser previllage.
second story. with no desperate to try, i delete phone.apk from system/app. then error message shown "com.android. bla bla not working". i dont remember whole message. i press OK, but the message keep showing up. can not get rid of the message, i decided to turn off my phone by holding power key. and after reboot, phone dont show signal bar, and of course, i can not make a call eventhough phone app could be opened.
third story. i'd remembered from somewhere, that i can flash apk with zip. then i decided to experiment a bit. i dont read any tutorial how to make update.zip (that's my fatal mistake.. my bad). i make my 'own version' flashable zip. making the original LS zip as an example
. i deleted everything
, and leave some that i thought important as you can see below :
The 'phone.apk' there, is the one i copied from cm 10.1 zip folder.
finally i install the zip via cwm recovery hope it'll work. i have seen your first paragraph LS instalation, but then it said "failed". and NOW, my phone ended with bootloop. it just stuck at samsung logo.
PLEASE,, how to fix this?? i dont want to re-install all over from the start...
