How to Convert User app to system app ???
Android 4.1+ Supported Method
I use this method only when I have to convert just a single app. You need to have any file explorer with root permissions, I use ES File Explorer
To convert a user app to system app:
- Go to /data/app or wherever your user application is installed.
- Cut the apk file of the application you want to convert to system app.
- Go to /system/app and paste the file there.
- Long press the apk file and click Permissions.
- Set the permissions as rw-r--r--, if you don't know what they are set them as I have done in the screenshots I have attached.
To convert a system app to user app:
- Go to /system/app and locate the system file you want to convert.
- Move the file to /data/app.
- Change the permissions to /data/app and reboot.
