    Help Replacing System Apps

    Hi guys,

    I recently found a theme that I liked, but not completely. I was able to extract the contacts and dialer apks from the theme zip file, but cannot seem to install just those two apps.

    I've tried both Astro and Root Explorer, but neither one can successfully uninstall the current contacts and dialer apks, nor install the new contacts and dialer apks over the existing ones.

    Is there something special I need to do? Installation must be possible because they obviously installed just fine when installing the whole theme, but why can't I get just these two apks to install?

    Make sure you are in r/w mode in root explorer before you delete.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but still not working...

    Just says, "App not installed", but offers no reason why not.

    Im having a similar problem. After installing a theme some system apps wouldn't upgrade, so I deleted them through RootExplorer and im still getting the "application not installed" message and don't know why.
