  • Why do you want to install the new phone app to /system? You can use a new phone app by installing it in the usual way. – Dan Hulme Feb 27 '14 at 10:20

Bro I'm trying to do it .. But there is only one way I found .. Just download some system app installer apk and install it .. Then get phone.apk and contact.apk from any custom ROM which is for your device and install them using system app installer ... That's all you can do .. I've tried a lot to find the way but it didn't work .. Good luck
