Default [APP][4.4+] OmniSwitch: Recent apps switcher for all KitKat ROMs

OmniSwitch is a recent apps switcher created for OmniROM by maxwen, you can read more about it here. Even though the app was developed for OmniROM, it works on all KitKat ROMs. Users of non-KitKat ROMs can take a look at OmniSnitch.

The attached .zip file is to be used with custom recovery and flashes OmniSwitch.apk (extracted from OmniROM) to /system/priv-app, the app needs to be in this location for the kill apps function to work. You can also copy the attached apk to system/priv-app, you will also need to set the permissions to rw-r--r--, do not install it. If you're interested in the source code, you can find it here.

This thread was created with maxwen's permission.

Edit: I have changed both files, from what I saw with the tests I did, both methods work now. Thanks to ultimahwhat for the new apk and to OrglCe for his zip creator.
Let me know if there are any problems.

Edit: If you have any permission problems, it should be fixed after using lucky patcher to remove signature verification on your phone, as always, this is at own risk.



21/05/2014: Update to version 1.1. New feature has been added. Signature differs so you can't use the apk to update the old version.

26/05/2014: Version 1.1 should work correctly now.

Can you try to flash it with a custom recovery? I was also struggling to get it to work by copying it, I got it working once but don't know what I did different, haven't had any problems when flashing via recovery.

Tried flashing it on stock 4.4.2 setup (rooted) on Nexus 5. Keep getting failed to gain permissions errors. Checked root explorer and correct permissions were shown however.

I'm also getting the start failed error, I'm trying to figure out how to fix it.

I think I messed up with the signatures/certificates, I'm busy looking for a solution.

In the meantime, found a potential workaround, hope it is a kosher suggestion... Omni switch was included with and working on pac rom, so I just extracted the apk from one of the nightlies and copied it into the appropriate directory, changed permissions. Did not get permissions error after reboot and am able to use it with drag handle. Now if I could just replace the default recents launcher...
