So the hard reset didn't seem to work unfortunately. Could sbf really work?
I don't think hard resets do anything other than remove any data on the phone. An SBF should work, not sure if there is an SBF out for the DX2, have not looked personally.
Perhaps someone could explain what an SBF is and where to get it for the DX2?
I used Titanium backup to remove some system apps that I shouldn't have, now i can't view my contacts. I thought I was doing the right thing by using TB to backup the data but when I attempt to restore the backup Titanium Backup shows a popup window that says its "restoring the app" with a spinning gear but it never works. I end up having to restart the phone to get it to stop.
So will this SBF file help fix my problem?
After a few days of research and communication I found the fix for this problem. I did not need to use the SBF file, although I think I see the value in this file as it appears to serve as a last resort backup.
This thread details the fix that I used.
Uninstalled Contacts Storage and now im screwed
A recap to my problem: I used Titanium Backup to delete apps that caused my contacts not to appear and go back to the home screen when I attempted to view them individually. I had deleted amongst other things, the Yahoo Authentication app.
Is this list still considered safe? I created the typical problem when I deleted Yahoo Authentication, but I also wondering if deleting backup assistant will cause a problem? Also, I thought anything with blur in the name was dangerous to freeze?
What are you current thoughts on this list?
The quoted list on the 5th or 6th post is fine. Just don't mess with yahoo contacts or what ever it's called. It's not on the list but people see yahoo and think, "I can't possibly need that", when in fact you do need it.
Also while using a sbf will work, it's a bit over kill. If you deleted a system app like yahoo, to restore it just find a system dump that's been uploaded (there are several on almost all the forums) download it, find the apk and odex files, put them back on the phone, reset the permissions and reboot.
If that's to daunting for you then the honest truth is you probably shouldn't be messing with deleting system apps in the first place. Unless of course you like learning, most devs started out not knowing anything, breaking something learning to fix it, learning a bit more and more. Now we look up to them.
