    I wanted to free up some space on my device (LG G3). I didn't want Google on my phone so not knowing I deleted everything to do with Google. Well the next time I tried to go onto the google playstore or youtube (app)it says its not supported by my device but it is supposed to be on my device because it was on my device earlier. I deleted all the google apps and other things of google with ROM FILE MANAGER and I didnt backup my device. I tried factory reseting my phone. But when I did that the app google or google playstore is not showing up, and when I try to update google it gives me the same message its not supported on your device(google). So please help me hear it has been so nerve racking for me. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you rooted? If you rooted your phone and started deleting important apps without doing a backup, you can easily land in a situation like this.

    I'm pretty positive you are rooted and if you really want google play to work on your phone again you will need to download a few items again, just open your browser and search for google play apk, google services apk and their might be two other apks needed to get it going, as for you tube you can just use your browser and use the mobile site without needing any google apks. Thumbs up for not wanting google products on your phone and I understand that you might want to download apps but there are other places to get the apps you need.

    It doesn't make a lot of sense to get an Android phone and then "delete everything to do with Google". The whole point of Android is its integration with Google.

    Since you are rooted, you should probably flash a gapps pack to get the essentials back. Google gapps for your version.

    A factory reset will not work because you've already tampered with the system area.

    Some people like myself don't like how invasive google is and don't want them on our phones.
    Then again most people don't even think about it and continue to give google all their information.

    Deleting everything Google from Android is like deleting everything Microsoft from Windows on a PC

    There are a lot of apps that I don't want on my phone which are from Google that come stock. Removing them has improved battery life, stability and device speed.

    Completely incorrect. Many people like Android, but not Google; it's easy to flash CM12 or any other AOSP-based ROM, sideload the Amazon App Store (or a number of other oprions), and you've got a fully functional Android device without a whiff of Google.
