you have to do adb push or use Root Explorer to put it in the /system/app (then set the right permissions)

you might have luck with es, but root explorer is the best.

Root explorer is the easiest just copy it go over to system/app/ make sure you have mounted r/w up at the top and then paste it. Then you wanna long click on it and change permissions to user: read write. Group: read. Otheres: read.

Tried that and no love. Any other ideas?

Try this i found a more detailed post on androidforums.

To do this:
  • In Root Explorer, copy the apk file you want to put in /system/app
  • Navigate to the /system/app directory
  • Tap the Mount R/W button on the top right
  • Tap Paste
  • Scroll down to the pasted apk, long press on it and select Permissions (you'll see 9 check boxes when you do this)
  • Check the Read and Write buttons for User, and only the Read boxes next to Group and Others, then tap OK (once you're done, the read/write permissions under the app name should be the same as all the other apps listed (rw-r--r--))
  • Reboot.
