I need help!!! D:

I removed some apps with system cleanup and I was very careful except I made a stupid mistake. My mistake was not waiting till I got home from work to perform a backup. I deleted google play store, browser and apparently some app that is used for the stock android google search engine to work. I can't even click a link on facebook (app) because it crashes facebook. When searching with stock google app that comes with the phone it does nothing. Since I deleted google play store I cannot re download a browser. I tried uploading play store and another browser via android injector but nothing happens when I press it to upload. It says there is one app ready to install but when I click to install the app just goes away on android injector and it does not say an app was not installed nor installed correctly. Is there any other way someone recommends to get this fixed?

If your still having trouble, you might need to manually update to the latest firmware, this will take it back to stock non-root.

I have not tried that yet, I am following this guide to do it http://www.talkandro...les-on-android/ . Is this correct and do I have to have an sd card to install an apk file via a usb?

UPDATE:
I emailed the .apk file to myself and installed it on my phone. It installed but unfortunately when I open it, it says google play has stopped working, I think I royally screwed something up lol.

Performing factory reset....

Factory reset did not fix my problem :( My browser is still gone and when I open google play that I downloaded from my email it says google play has stopped working. Can anyone direct me on how to fix what I messed up? I would appreciate it, thank you.

Got dolphin to install and works fine, still dont have google play store :/ but I have aptoid now which my be better. Sure would like to fix the shit i broke though

SOLUTIONS FOR DELETED SYSTEM APPS
"Google Play has stopped working" - Solution for Google Play error


TRY ONLY ONE THING AT A TIME DON'T TRY EVERYTHING AT ONCE. RUN GOOGLE PLAY AFTER EACH STEP

  • Go to the menu->System settings->Apps->Downloaded->Google Play Store->Uninstall updates, then reboot your device.
  • Go to the menu->System settings->Apps->Downloaded->Google Play Store->Clear cache, then reboot your device and run Google Play Store.
  • In some cases, delete and re-install resolves this issue.
  • Sometimes a different version of google play works instead of the one you have.
  • You can also use a different market app like Aptoide Client or Click on This for other non market apps.

OTHER WAYS TO INSTALL APPS: USB Cable, Dropbox, Barcode Scanner, Online Apk Installer & Android Injector




Click on any of the "Green Colored Links" to download apps


INSTALL GOOGLE PLAY OR ANY APK APPLICATION WITH USB Cable.

  • Ensure that you have the correct USB drivers installed for your Spectrum 2 device.
  • Enable USB debugging in your phone's settings, go to->Settings->Developer Options->OK->USB debugging
  • Install File Manager and Root Add-On, for browsing the data on your phones SD card.
  • Next download the .apk file to your PC "PlayStore_v3.10.14.apk"
  • Now connect your phone to your PC using your USB cable. Open the SD card and copy or drag over the .apk file.
  • Unplug your USB cable from your phone, navigate to the .apk file using File Manager and select it.
  • This will open a dialog box allowing you to intall the app.

INSTALL GOOGLE PLAY OR ANY APK APPLICATION WITH Dropbox

INSTALL GOOGLE PLAY OR ANY APK APPLICATION WITH Barcode Scanner

  • Download Barcode Scanner, I personally prefer "QR Droid" app, but there's several others out there.
  • Now run your barcode scanner app on your phone, click on-->"QR Code for PlayStore v3.10.14", and download.

INSTALL GOOGLE PLAY OR ANY APK APPLICATION WITH Online Apk Installer

  • The APK Installer makes manual installation of an .apk file much easier. Next download PlayStore v3.10.14.apk.
  • Now go to www.apkinstall.com, selelect->"Browse Files" then navigate to your apk file on your PC and select.
  • Once you have uploaded the file, a QR code will appear on the website. Scan the QR code using Barcode Scanner.
  • After the .apk file has downloaded to your device, you can install it by simply clicking on it and navigating through the installation pages.

INSTALL APPS ON YOUR DEVICE USING Android Injector

AFTER INTALLING SYSTEM APP

  • After installing Google Play Store
  • Move it to "system applications" with System Cleanup app
  • Clear the cache and data of Google Play Store
  • Then "Reboot"

Just a heads up, I was following your guide for debloating and softbricked my phone (got it back) but not sure which app did it, I didnt freeze or uninstall any apps that you didn't mark as safe. The only thing I can think of is that there were two amazon's listed. a 1.x version and a 2.x version. I got rid of both, that may have possibly done it but not for sure on that.

Edit: I also integrated updates to system apps, maybe that did it.

Also, anyone had any luck deodexing this thing? I'm thinking of giving it a try. I've done it on the HTC thunderbolt. Do you think doing that would cause a security error like removing one of the system apps did? I just don't have experience the locked bootloaders. Had a Droid 2 but just flashed premade stuff to that, didn't get in to doing stuff myself until I got the HTC with an unlocked bootloader.

BTW, haven't seen it posted here, there is a working 2nd-init version of CWM for the spec2: http://androidforums...m-recovery.html

A good WiFi tether app that I use with great success with the spectrum 2 (rooted) is "Open Garden Wifi Tether". Its available in the Google App Market. You will just need to change a few settings to make it work. Those settings are as follows:

Change Device Profile to "Generic ICS"

Setup-Method should be set on "Auto Detect".

Change Channel to "Channel 11". - This setting can be set on auto or any other channel, but I find channel 11 to have the best signal and faster than the other channels.

Change encryption setup method to "iwconfig"

All other settings should remain unchanged except for SSID and Passphrase if you wish to use Wifi encryption.

I have been using this app since my I rooted my first smartphone (HTC Thunderbolt) using gingerbread.
