Titanium has been the most unreliable piece of sht so far.
I need to reinstall the Blur homescreen(because apparently it just magically uninstalled itself after Titanium froze it.. and Titanium hangs when i try to restore the app using its backup... fun stuff)
Been messing with adb all day to push a replacement apk into the /system/app folder... also tried "adb install /system/app/blurhome2.apk" ..
managed to get the stupid apk into the system/app folder but it doesnt seem to have actually...installed, and the adb install command just says it cant find the specified file (trying writing the path in different ways too)

also tried installing it via root explorer, that just fails...

about to smash my phone against the wall

any ideas?
 
Sorry to hear that I've had no issues with mine besides me freezing the wrong thing.
 
Have you tried setting the permissions of the apk after pushing through adb?

I tried one command (something to do with chmod 644, or something) and also tried setting the permission through root explorer. Nothing helped

Divide by zero, I dare you...

to be clear permissions should be read and write for owner and just read for group and others

Root explorer gives you a good visual of the above

Wow it... somehow is installed now
Typical. I spend an entire day trying to get it working but when I don't need it anymore, it mysteriously starts to work.
