    Exclamation Browser.apk (modified) no installed???

    I just fully customized the stock Browser.apk. Got it all nice and pretty, but when I tried to replace the original Browser.apk with my modified one, when I try to open the browser, it keeps telling me that the application is not installed on my system. WTF!

    This browser (when fully complete), is going to be part of my complete theme for BB on Froyo.

    Any ideas?

    If someone wants, I can upload the file, and see if you can tell me what I did wrong. Is it a signing issue, permissions issue, or a naming issue?

    first question is where did you put it? it should be put in systems/apps with 644 permissions (rw-r--r--). After both those are set, reboot the phone and try again. Usually modifying the /system/app requires a reboot. Let me know how that works, if that doesn't work, I will take a look at the file and see if I can find anything.

    just let me know if it worked... also remember to remove the original browser before installing the themed version of it.

    also use adb to push apps to the system.

    just put the file in the tools folder in your computer. reboot into recovery. mount the system. then open cmd and get in your tools folder, then run this command

    adb root
    adb remount
    adb push example.apk /system/app

    unmount the system and type

    adb reboot

    I actually changed the permissions to 644, just like you said, and it didnt work. So I deleted it, and the backup copy that I made (moved the backup to my computer), then used root explorer to move the modified one back, and changed permissions again, and it worked perfectly. Not sure why, but I dont think you can have something like: "Browser.apk" (modified version) and "Browser.apk.BACKUP" (original version) both in the /system/app folder at the same time. Name conflict? Still thinks of "Browser.apk.BACKUP" as an APK?

    well may not be helpful but ms train sim used apk files and that filename.apk.backup often failed too. I used filename.org instead.
