    Well, the way this works is by checking for CityID.apk. If it finds that file, it runs the script to remove the bloat (the packages listed in the first post). If it doesn't find CityID.apk it runs the script that puts the bloatware back.

    If you have changed some of the /system apks to .bak (including CityID.apk since that is the "switch") and they are on the list in the first post it should be able to change them back.

    If the files you've changed are not on the list, you'll have to manually change them back to .apk

    Are you trying to get rid of bloat, or get bloat back? If CityID is already .bak, just run the script and it will bring the bloat back.

    It definitely could be. I was just including the "minimum" level of bloatware to remove in the script.

    Does anybody play that game anyway?

    Edit 1-8-2011:Script now includes Madden.

    so i tried this out, and i went to restore the bloatware, but not all of it came back. madden, cityid, amazon mp3, and skype did not restore. maybe because i completely uninstalled these apps previously?

    Did you run the update.zip or the gscript script?

    I just downloaded it and tried it again (the update.zip) and it worked as expected.

    You might run it again to get it back in sync...as long as CityID isn't found with .apk, the script will keep trying to put them back.

    Have you navigated to /system/app with root explorer or a free file explorer to see if those apps are still named .bak?

    Looks like there is an extra "." On CityID.bak

    Rename it to .apk then the script should run fine.
