    So, I just switched from smoked glass v6.0.1 to BB v1.0. But now I miss the sholes live wallpaper that I could install with smoked glass. So I've extracted the apk for it from the smokedglass.rom.tar, but now what? I know I can't just install it

    Yeah...not sure how to do that code box things people make in the forums so:

    Btw, don't type the $ and #, they are just for reference

    When you first open terminal it should be just "$"
    Then type:
    $su
    #sysrw
    #cp LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app
    #sysro
    #reboot

    That should work...I normally work out of ADB, so that might be wrong...sounds right though.

    okay its in there(not sure about those commands...I think you left out /sd)
    But anyway, I rebooted and nothing. I have a feeling just pasting the apk in /system/app isn't enough

    Hmm...well if I used ADB, this is what I would do

    adb push location\LiveWallpapers.apk system/app

    Not sure why the previous method didn't work. Try this

    $su
    #sysrw
    #cp /sdcard/LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app
    #chmod 644 /system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk
    #sysro
    #reboot
