Has anyone been able to get the native SMS app from a 4.3 build working on the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE.? It receives SMS just fine and seems to have a SMS receiver app because i can view any SMS that is sent to its mobile number, but there is no interface to type a response. I tried to transplant the mms.apk from a Nexus 4 4.3 build as i did with my 2012 Nexus 7 3G but after changing the permissions and rebooting the cell radio kept crashing so there is something more involved other than just transplanting the APK and changing the permissions for the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE. Any ideas..? Thanks for your time, it's greatly appreciated.

Try this one. Is an original MMS.apk from a Nexus 4.3 factory image which works fine for me. Tried also some *modified* apk, but they did not work.

That worked but the old notification window is still present when new SMS messages come in. So the mms.apk gets the SMS but the old display olny notification also pops up.

--UPDATE---

Problem solved i disabled the simple Message Viewer i found in application manager, i guess i can delete that apk or file..

Sent from another unlocked T-Mobile iPhone 5,
Because they haven't released the Nexus 5..!

Tried this, the apk would not install. Does it need to be copied to a specific location on the tablet?

Update: Never mind, copied it to /system/app, set permissions and I'm golden.
