Default [Q] How to install default apps in upgrade

I would like to know how to install apps in android upgrades like as if it comes factory installed in original phone.

Like if we buy a new phone there are apps as default which cannot be uninstalled, how to run upgrade with select default, uninstallable apps.

I was looking to update the recovery but getting error "signature not verified, whole file" kinda error, how to get over it ?
I have already rooted phone with "super one click" do i need to use moto RSD lite, if yes please send me link for the the 'sbf' file.

thanks in advance

The app you are referring to,are called 'system apps'. If you need to convert an app to system app, use a root explorer and move the apk from /data/apps to /system/apps.
Or you can simply use an app like or /system app mover (play store) to do it automatically.

Root explorer allows you to edit your system files like build.prop, or bootanimation etc. Given you have the proper files to replace. Since it makes the system available for user to edit, should be used carefully or you might soft brick your device.

Though it is not advised to transfer apps(and illegal if you're transferring paid apps to a different account).
There are again two methods for that.
1.) Use root explorer and find the .apk file in data/app. Copy it and paste it on your sdcard. Transfer it to the other phone. Then open it using any file explorer.


2.) If you want to move apps in bulk, use an app like mybackup root, or titanium backup and make a backup of your apps. Find the backup file and copy it to other device. Then use the same app to restore your bckup.
