Problem: How to add Music to your ROM?
Answer (Go down the numbers until it works):
First thing to note is that Music.apk is a system app and cannot be installed on the phone regularly. System apps must be placed into /system/app.
The easiest way to get Music app onto OpenX2 v1.3 is via Patch: Community Patch v1.0 is my first recommendation, my next recommendation is GM Patch v1.0, and finally SciPhone Patch v1.0
If you are ADB savy, this is your next easiest option:
(Non-deodexed apps require the corresponding odex file in the same location.)
adb push Music.apk /system/app/Music.apk
If you must create your own Patch:
- These NEW updates are signed via signapk.jar and test keys
- If you want to modify a NEW update you must re-sign them after modification
- You could however use the OLD update methodology, which doesn't require signing but has to have the OLD update structure
- Regardless of OLD or NEW methodology, Music.apk must be in /system/app within the zip
