    Default Recover deleted apps

    Hi everyone,

    I accidentally removed some apps when I was trying to rename them to .old, after I rooted my bionic. I tried downloading them from the market but VZ navigatory gives me FC errors. I dont know if this will prevent me from getting OTA's in the future, so my questions is:

    how do I get the stock apps back, if they are removed on accident, so that I can get future OTA's?

    You will have to post a list of the apps your missing and one of your fellow Bionic rooted users can provide you with a zip of those missing files to flash to your device or push them manually via adb.

    Stupid question but I take it you didn't have them backed up with titanium?

    I came up with 3 of the 4 apps for you...

    NFL Mobile you will have to look around for...

    Bionic Missing Apps

    Extract the zip contents, transfer them to your sdcard. Use ES File Explorer or Root Explorer (anything with root level access) and copy and paste these files to
    /system/app/

    That should restore them, might need a reboot afterwards.

    I forgot to do that, ugh. I should have done that to begin with, but I forgot. I was hoping someone has the .apk files downloaded somewhere.

    I looked up the files you mentioned and VZ Navigator is linked to VisualizationWallpapers.apk

    Hi guys. I am a newbie both to the forum as well as Android world. I accidentally deleted a widget called Application Monitor. I think it comes preloaded to my android ice cream phone. Any possibility someone could send me that widget back?

    Many thanks!

    Would you be able to tell me how to recover lost apps. The one I'm talking about the is the system gallery.
    What happened was I was rooting the phone, and uninstalled the wrong app. Now I don't know how to get my system back to where I got it when I bought it, with all the apps on it.
    How to I recover a deleted system app caused by rooting? No, I didn't back up anything.
