1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I dont want to turn aroudn and buy better cut.I have rooted and am running bb7.6 I want to start playing with the app icons and not how to go find the app apk...and move it to the sdcard and then to the computer and change to zip to explore the file. What I am not sure is putting the app back on the phone. I have read...or think I rememeber reading that you can't just go and put the apk back in its spot overwriting it. for example the phone icon... what would I need to do to put the apk back and getting it to work? I also would like to know how to remove the clock all together in the status bar, I have beautiful widgets and have no need for the small clock.

    Through adb

    =================
    adb shell

    su

    mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    busybox cp /sdcard/[NAME OF APK FILE] /system/app/ (for apps, change the dir for framework to the framework dir)

    mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    sync

    reboot
    ==================

    No idea about the clock, I've been wondering that too, but it would leave all the icons in the middle of the bar.
