    Accidentally uninstalled Stock browser and calculator

    I tried installing a version of browser.apk I found online and it now crashes immediately upon opening. I cannot find the app for the calculator at all. Please help! I tried doing a backup but there wasn't any back up to go to. Right now, I have dolphin downloaded, but would also like the stock browser as well.


    I'm running Android 2.2.1 rooted with Z4root.


    Thanks so much!

    oops. you can't just install these you know, you have to put them back into /system/app

    Calculator.zip - Calculator
    Browser.zip - Browser

    you also need to rename them from .zip to .apk

    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Or SBF back to stock and reroot. z4root works on every version of the DX's firmware.

    I have both the files downloaded (found via Chad Haney's website). How do I get them into the system/app directory?

    LOL! It was accidental. I just rooted the phone today, so hadn't gotten as far as a backup.

    Two things;

    One, backup BEFORE you change anything. Always, always, always.

    Two, make a Titanium Backup backup right now, SBF back to stock, reroot, restore your backup.

    how do you accidentally delete browser or calculator.apk? you have to go into the /system/app, get read/write, and delete it...

    regardless, use file expert, download it off the market, copy the .zip (renamed .apk) from your sdcard, browse to /system/app, mount as read/write, and paste

    although I DO like furbearing's idea to sbf, although that's usually my line ^^

    Also, you can push the apps above into /system/app using adb and chmod to set appropriate permissions or use root explorer for that. Then install using root explorer or adb. Then restart your phone.

    *Make both a nandroid backup and a Titanium backup beforehand*

    Root Tools had it listed as Stock Browser. I thought stock meant well, stocks and bonds. WHich is why stock calculator went too. After that, I realised it meant stock as in factory stock. Oh well.
