    Problem after using Root Explorer

    So i used root explorer to change my status clock from black to white. All worked well but after i rebooted i am now getting these pop ups saying "Google.process.gapps has stopped unexpectedly" or something like that. They keep popping up after a few seconds. How do i get rid of this? Hopefully it is not a serous problems.

    TIA

    hopefully someone who really knows the answer will speak up, but I suspect that the problem revolves around setting permissions.
    I think that you have to long press the file and look for permissions and then set them, choosing read read/write etc.

    What instructions did you follow to change the clock? Is there a ref to permissions anywhere there?

    Have you tried simply resetting your Droid. Usually that will fix most of these issues, just like a reboot on a computer.

    getting slammed with com.google.process.gapps force close errors after applying this. Any ideas?

    Go to Settings/Accounts & sync and turn off all synchronization to temporarily stop the errors.
    Set permission 644 (User: Read Write Group: Read Others: Read) on /system/framework/services.jar
    Reboot and turn sync back on.

    I turned off sync but am still getting the messages. After a while the phone will reset itself. How do i do the above directions in bold?

    I tried reflashing and doing a nandroid restore (or so i think i did). How do you do a restore the right way? Or a complete restore i don't care if i loose apps or settings, i just want to fix this.
    TIA

    These are the directions i used. Also when i placed the .jar file in the right folder it asked if i wanted to replace the existing one so i put "yes". I also had to "Mount" something in order for it to let me paste it in the folder.

    all i did was get the proper .jar file (which you should have found and downloaded it from the thread i posted on the last page), have it on my mac desktop. I then connected my phone to computer via USB, mounted it so i could click on my phone and see everything, i then click on my phone... which shows all the SD card files... i dragged the .jar file into the "android" folder (just so i know where it is).

    Then i unmounted phone and disconnected it from my computer, lastly i used the app "root explorer" to look at my phones files... on the first screen after opening the app. you should see audio, cache, data, images, etc. etc.

    Click on "sdcard" and then on the "android" folder (where you put the .jar file when mounted to your computer). Fine the .jar file, long click on it and select "copy", then go back to the first screen of "root explorer" and click on "system" and then "framework", once in the "framework" folder paste the .jar folder you copied... exit out, restart your phone and your time displayed on the top right of your notification bar should be white!

    This worked for me and from reading that thread this also seems like bar far the easiest way to accomplish your goal, i hope my directions make sense... let me know if it works, if it doesn't i will check my instructions and clarify if needed, good luck!

    These are terminal commands that can be done for you issue. Since I don't use root explorer

    su
    mount -o remount,rw-t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /system/framework
    chmod 644 /system/framework/services.jar
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /deb/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot
    If you like what I do, thanks

    reboot
    I'm not really good with that stuff. Will doing a factory reset affect anything serious with being rooted? Will I be unrooted afterwards? I think that would be my easiest option right now.

    It sounds like yo have done a lot of stuff.

    The issue of setting permissions in rootexplorer of services.jar involve going to the file and long pressing it. Another box will open. I think you have to check the following boxes
    User: Read Write
    Group: Read
    Others: Read

    Whether the above can help you at this point, I just don't know
