    If you made a nandroid backup, you could just restore to that. But I assume you mean that you just backed up that one file somewhere?

    adb push filename /data/data

    Problem is, you probably have a whole DIRECTORY of files, right? Not sure how well adb does with multiple files. You might need to do adb shell and just make the directory, then push all the files into it.

    Well we've learned a valuable lesson today. Rename directories, don't delete.

    Nope,this time I didnt,it was the "com.google.android.provider.settings" and in there there is 3 folders,2 of them are empty and one of them has a "googlesettings.db" file that i need to restore. I tried that command to transfer the whole "com..." folder an it pushed it but it put it somewhere else...it was a database folder where i didn't tell it to go.

    lol yup,from now on ill do that.
