    Well, unfortunately we're starting to get above my skill set here. Aside from the backup assistant, I'm not sure any of those (see below) would actually show up in the app drawer, so it may be that they're not all the way "re-installed". I assume you all ready checked, but are the permissions correct for each of the apps you put back?

    android-syncservice-app
    backupassistance client
    blur-services
    buacontactadapter
    cmas
    homesyncwizard
    work contacts

    This motorola thread seems to indicate that a factory reset should fix it, but this is not ideal...https://supportforums.motorola.com/message/210267

    A factory reset would be a pain, but If you titanium backup all user apps and data first, then factory reset, and use titanium backup to restore all of your user apps and data it shouldn't take that long...

    One last thought...You might try fixing permissions using Clockwork Recovery/Bootstrapper.

    oops. too late. phone restored. all apps back installed and personal data restored. syncs with google and pulls contact pictures from facebook like how it used to before the system app restoration. from the surface it appears to be back just the way it was out of the box. the update is currently downloading. (hense I didn't recieve the error)
    for future reference what apps is it ok to freeze and unfreeze for updates without causing harm to the system like that?

    The apps included in the scripts have been generally accepted as safe to remove. Some of the other social network stuff can go, but you will loose widgets and some other minor functionality. Best bet, if it says "Blur" in the name, leave it alone. Also removing Backup Assistant has been known to cause issues with factory resets.

    This link is specif to Cyanogen mod based roms, but it does provide a good description of which factory apps will mess up other functions.

    uhh oh...
    IT WORKED! mwahaah updated to 2.4.330!
    thank you so much with all your help.
    i finally have a procedure where i can have the level of access to the system i want (root) and still able to install normal OTA updates without modifying the recovery system on the phone.
    i can't thank you enough for having very fast responses and links for the stock system apps. I'll be sure to keep your profile and ask you first with any problems i may encounter. happy droiding!

    Well that is strange. Is there any text on the screen at all? Just to be clear, you've navigated through the clockwork recovery menu, chosen to install zip from sdcard, picked the D2G_Bloat_Update.zip, selected yes (in the menu that has a bunch of "no" but one yes). After that, the text leaves the screen and all you see is the arrow coming out of the box toward the android?

    It should say
    Installing :SDCARD2G_Bloat_Update.zip
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...

    and then run through the script.

    It is possible that if it says none of that clockwork is having another issue, or the script may have had an incomplete download? It may be worth re-downloading the script and trying again.

    Well if gets to
    Installing :SDCARD2G_Bloat_Update.zip
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...

    But freezes there with the Box with arrow to Android Robot.

    I also get errors saying it can't verify the file on E. This happens with both the bloatware and any ROM's that I try to install. Any Ideas?

    And yes I followed all your steps. I used Bootstrapper to get to clockwork mod and navigated as instructed
