How to install Galaxy Note 9 Stock Apps on any Samsung device?
In order to install the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 apps and features, you will need to replace the original apps with the new ones and give proper permissions for each app.
Note: These apps need to be placed in the root directory. Hence, you may need a rooted Android phone. You will need to access the system folder. ES File Explorer does a very good job in it. However, having rooted Samsung Galaxy device on Android 7 Nougat or 8 Oreo would make things a little easier.
Note 2: At this moment, there are two apps that crash including Device Maintenance Crashes, and Phone And Contacts Crashes. So we recommend staying away from these apps.
Steps: Here for instance, we are going to use the TouchWiz Home as a reference. Repeat for each app.
- Download Note 9 apps packages, extract to PC and copy the new TouchWiz Home app to phone storage.
- Open a file manager or an app like ES File Explorer that gives you access to system apps. If you have a rooted Android device, use a root browser.
- Launch the file manager. Provide proper permissions.
- In ES File Explorer, go to the main storage screen (Local) or SD Card section. You would be at location
/ > storage > emulated. On the top breadcrumbs bar swipe right to get to the “/”.
- Find “system” folder inside and enter. There will be many folders. Our main folders are “app” and “priv-apps”.
- Find the app in the system folder. Here, go to
- Backup the original APK file you see in there. Meaning, create a copy of the original app before you replace it.
- Once done, delete the original app and paste the new
TouchWizHome_2017.APKfile in it.
- This is important! Give correct permissions or else the app won’t work.
- To do so, hold onto the app and go to properties of the app and set Permission ‘rw-xr-xr-x’ for the folders and ‘rw-r-r ‘ (0644) for APK files.
- Repeat for the entire folder or each app.
- Reboot the device.
