Did you also change the file ownership to root? If not, do "chown root,root ./*" in /system/app.
I am having this problem with my contacts also. I moved the yahoo files into the sytem/app. They are all there. I rebooted my phone and it did not fix the problem. I don't understand what people are talking when they say you have to change permissions or ownership. I tried to install the files and they all come up with a message saying "application not installed." Can someone please explain what I need to do next?
Edit: I think I figured out the permissions thing. All of the missing files are now set to
Is this correct? It still does not work after this. Am I missing something?
I used Ghost Commander and set CHMON to User: root, Group: root and still no fix yet. Any further suggestions would be appreciated.
I figured out that the correct permissions are rw--r--r--root--root. Still not working. Can anyone please help here?
Can anyone help me here? I need to get this fixed.
If you deleted system apks you need to copy the same ones back to the system folder. You don't have to try and install like a downloaded app. I like es file explorer, it generally helps with getting the permissions done right. If you copied them ok but it still doesn't work then you might try a data reset. If that still fails then you can always fastboot back to stock.
Thank you thank you thank you....thank you x100! I scoured the net and a few forums and your answer was the only one that worked. I concur...you are the most beautiful person in the world (next to my kids of course lol.) All the other directions I found left off the part about putting it directly into the app folder so I kept trying to install it by tapping. Thank you again for your clarity! Just a side note...ugh to yahoo...I don't even have a yahoo acct which is why I got rid of it...didn't and still don't think I should need it.
