Using APK Manager to fix apps that won't install under CM6.1b2.

Why should it care if /mnt/sdcard is on an internal partition or on an external sdcard partition?
I downloaded APK Manager from here...
then based on what ibrickeditithink stated (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2602
) I pulled apart two game apk files, angry birds and fruit ninja (since I know that one works) and looked for differences that I could comprehend.
My best guess effort was that fruit ninja had this listed in their android Manifest.xml file
whereas angry birds said something about installing to external card only. I figured since the mapping was messed up on our tablets that this would be a good place to start so I modified the xml file, used the APK manager to repackage it and pushed it though adb install to my gtab. it installed succesfully and there was an icon in my launcher for angry birds, i clicked it to open the file and my screen went blank and I could hear the music for angry birds but no video. I had to hit the back button to exit the game.
I'm not a programmer (not since q-basic anyways) so seeing as how I was already in over my head I decided to try again another day but i kept all the exploded files for both games to compare again in the future. Maybe somebody with some actual knowledge can step in at this point and fix that last little bit that is killing the video?
