    I just picked up an X2 and successfully rooted with gingerbread. I've also been trying to get rid of some bloatware. Somehow I can't look at any of my contact data, or even text some people.

    How have you been removing the bloatware? If your freezing it, unfreeze anything that has to do with Authentication.

    Programs like:
    Yahoo Mail Authenticator
    Twitter Authenticator
    Skyrock Authenticator
    etc....

    I froze many of those and had the same issue.

    The data comes up blank or the apps don't work? If your contacts are in gmail can you see them on the web? If you make a new contact on the web does it not show up on the phone? Might be a syncing issue.

    When I try to read contact numbers, it comes up with a white screen that just goes back to the contact list after a second. I uninstalled a few of those authenticator apps with titanium, can I just restore them?

    You should never uninstall system apps like that, always freeze them. I would try to restore them, have never restored a system app before so not sure how it will work.

    You can try that. You also can restore your phone to how it was just before you made the changes that block your contacts too. You did make a backup right away, right? If not and if the restore doesn't work then you could just wipe all data to restore the phone, or reapply a rom if you did that. Keep making backups and you make changes. Then when the phone works how you want it to get rid of all but the most recent backup.

    I did make a backup of everything before I uninstalled stuff. I'm trying to restore the yahoo mail authenticator app and its just sitting on the loading screen, not sure if it's going to work.

    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?

    Thank you
