    Smile Factory reset on Droid 4

    Hello Community. I am new here and as in with most newbies, I come with questions or solutions. So here goes:

    Since the Droid 4 is so new, it's hard pressed to find answers. So here is my situation and question in plain english:

    New droid 4..I rooted it with Motofail (one click).. In getting rid of bloatware, I uninstalled something I shouldn't have (using Root Uninstaller)...

    If I restore to factory, 1) will it restore all the bloatware as well (I did no backup) and 2) will it become unrooted or stay rooted? 3)assuming it stays rooted after factory reset, can I install the DROID 4 Utility (Pre-Release [WINDOWS] - xda-developers) over the already rooted phone?

    My expected end result?: To be able to restore a couple of stock apps, to do a total backup of phone (using Titanium)
    to have installed the droid utility and to have a rooted phone. All help and advice totally appreciated. Thank you.

    I am not positive if a data reset will put back your missing apps but i know for sure that it will not remove root. If you want to be on the save side you can download voodoo ota root keeper from the market and run it to save root. Just be sure when you do the reset not to erase your internal memory and you should be good as far as that goes.

    Factory reset does not restore uninstalled apps. I believe all it does is erase user data and returns all settings back to stock. There are no fastboot files so I'm not sure you can get that missing app back.

    Maybe if you tell us what you uninstalled someone may have a backup and you can try install it but i remember some people had problems doing this too.

    The My Verizon App... When I realized it was gone, I reinstalled it from the market, but upon loading it says, this application requires the Verizon Login Client. Please download the client and start the application again (error code 305)"... I have no idea how to download the client login or what it is. So I uninstalled it and tried to download it again... Same problem

    There's a close button and **poof** bye bye it goes again..

    Look in your system apps via titainium bachup and see if you have the "verizon single sign on engine" or it may be called "SSO".

    Yes, I found the sso 1.0 and sso permissions 1.0

    but I only installed the titanium I haven't backed up yet. What do I do with it now?

    I think if I uninstall those two files...then reinstall the My Verizon app, it will allow me to login..that's my newbie thinking cap talking... What do you think??

    I don't know a solution for you OP but for everyone else reading this thread, I can't stress this enough: DO NOT UNINSTALL SYSTEM APPS. EVER.

    Here is a thread with a list of apps that are safe to FREEZE on the Droid 4.

    Truer words could not have been spoken. Especially since we have no means of recovery yet.
