Probably you need superuser-mod(patched services.jar) to make it work.
Just Google it and give it a shot, it was fairly easy to do as I remember.
Or install xposed framework, and use a module to patch services.jar. I believe serjars xperiamod has the feature.

Ahh okay. I just tried to install it, didn't work either. Running carbon ROM.
Maybe u can try installing as system app. If that doesn't work the app itself probably needs to be patched for us to work, idk.
Regards

i have lucky patcher installed and i tried didn't seem to work so i will try making it a system app thanks though

Hiya folks,

I've been asked to take a look at this. I don't have a Z5 sadly, but I can see what I can sort out with the APK itself.

I've downloaded the APK from here: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/samsung-electronics-co-ltd/music-samsung-electronics-co-ltd/music-samsung-electronics-co-ltd-16-2-12-4-release/ and the Samsung framework files from here: https://mega.nz/#!3xRQ0JJa!fnGrom1tsN65w4g__Ov_rWX_UQvRt4ujWhiR-d1kxSk

We might be able to get this working by editing the Manifest but the first problem we have is that the APK doesn't recompile even without any changes..
Code:
Recompiling "com.sec.android.app.music.apk" With Original Signature, using original "AndroidManifest.xml", rebuilding with aapt2
in work area "_WorkArea1", using "apktool_2.3.3.jar" 
 
With Tickle My Android 15.4.0.5 
(tinyurl.com\ticklemyandroid) 

 ----------------

Installed Framework File(s):

framework-res.apk [1.apk]
twframework-res.apk [2.apk]

 ----------------

I: Using Apktool 2.3.3
I: Smaling smali folder into classes.dex...
I: Smaling smali_classes2 folder into classes2.dex...
I: Smaling smali_classes3 folder into classes3.dex...
I: Building resources...
W: C:\TickleMyAndroid\_WorkArea1\_working\com.sec.android.app.music.apk\res\values\raws.xml:3: error: invalid value for type 'raw'. Expected a reference.
brut.androlib.AndrolibException: brut.common.BrutException: could not exec (exit code = 1): [C:\Users\LCHESN~1\AppData\Local\Temp\brut_util_Jar_2362954186141399430.tmp, compile, --dir, C:\TickleMyAndroid\_WorkArea1\_working\com.sec.android.app.music.apk\res, --legacy, -o, C:\TickleMyAndroid\_WorkArea1\_working\com.sec.android.app.music.apk\build\resources.zip]

 ----------------

Recompile Not Successful!

Deleting the "raws.xml" file doesn't work as the APK won't recompile. Deleting the line in the file doesn't work as the APK won't recompile either. We need to find a way around that before we do anything else.

Good ol' Samsung. Always causing trouble.
