How do I fix factory mode on my Samsung S3 without Google Play or system apps?


AC Question

How do I fix factory mode on my samsung S3 without google play or system apps!

I have recently had this message constantly pop up on my phone in a black box and yellow writing. I found out that my phone was on factort mode. I found out how to fix this problem but I need google play to download the app buy my system apps have gone!! Ive done a factoey reset but that did not fix anything. I cant fix this factory mode on my phone because my system apps are gone, including google play. So I have no way of fixing this. Im 15 soon so I dont know anything about this. So If you could please help me, but in a simplified version! That will
be much appreciated. Thankyou in advance! :)

You can try enabling installation of apps from unknown sources and then installing a different apps market like mobogenie or SlideME via a downloadable .apk file. Hopefully those alternative markets might also have the other apps on that you say you need to install. I'm sure if you look hard enough you could find a Google play .apk file. If not, maybe an old android market .apk file might auto update itself 'into' Google play, so that's another avenue to explore
