I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sm-n900, i copied the 'system' folder from the root directory to my computer, i used the JoelDroid Lollipop Batch Deodexer to deodex my system, now i wiped my original system folder from my device using CWM recovery. How do i push the DeoDexed system folder to my device?

I need this for installing xposed framework, it requires a deodexed rom on my device. i have already tried zipping the system with a META-INF and flashing it in CWM recovey, my device never boots to samsung logo.

  • do i have a bad META-INF?

  • I recommend you go to xda-developers and search for deodexed stock ROMs. Alternatively flash a stock ROM and copy the deodexed apks to it without deleting everything else.

Try any recovery FileManager like this one Aroma File Manager and make sure you give appropriate file permissions for the system folder..!

  • AFM is a good thing to have. The permission part is however very hard to do, since different folders and files sometimes have varying permissions, owners and SELinux contexts. At this point I think OP should go look for a deodexed ROM instead. Still an effective answer nonetheless.
