    Default Hello from ex iPhone user

    Greetings all. I recently got a note 3 after many iphones and I don't see myself going back. Android use to freak me out with its user interface and colors. Now I love it. Unfortunately, I am currently having a problem with accidentally deleting apps from my sys/apps folder and my phone is acting weird. I would love to know how to restore my phone to the factory state with all its apps intact.
    Thanked by:

    Welcome to Android Central! So I assume you rooted your phone?

    Yes, with a kingo root but I unrooted today and it no longer says custom.

    Welcome to AC.

    You would have to flash the stock firmware or have a backup in custom recovery.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Is the phone still acting up? You may need to flash a stock ROM.

    Welcome to the forum, inc55.

    To restore your phone to factory state with all its apps intact go to Settings > Backup and reset > Factory reset.
    Once reset you can restore all your apps from your account at the Play Store (goto 'My Apps').

    MAKE A GOOD BACKUP – and move that backup set off the phone – BEFORE YOU RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS.
