    So I accidentally deleted to system files with titanium backup. I have located the apks with es file explorer. How do I go about getting them back on my phone. I try to open and install them but it says application not installed. I am stock .902 with root on my bionic. Thank you!

    Don't install them. Copy and move them to the /system/app folder. Permissions should be rw/r/r. I'm not sure how es explorer works. I only us Root Explorer.

    I could not get this to work with root explorer. I though I had found the apks but now i realize that I was discovering them with root explorer but this was after I had deleted them with titanium backup so there must be something wrong with them. I followed your instructions above and some more in depth instructions on you tube. I believe if I could just get someone to send me the apks from a backup that they had done then I would properly be able to push them into my system apps as you have described. I cannot find the files online. I need news 2.3.4 for bionic (com.motorola.blur.news) and weather 2.3.4 for bionic (com.motorola.blur.weather) I believe that these are both widgets in the motorola system.

    Did you delete the apps and backups from TiBU? If nit then TiBU can still restore the app if there was a backup.

    I backed up the apps with titanium backup but they would not restore with tibu. I saw someone else had a very similar problem. They have since been deleted. In root explorer i see that every file or app has an odex file with it. The ones i need (news 2.3.4 and weather 2.3.4) show up in root explorer under system apps but the odex file is not there. I saw a bionic system dumb here in the forums. Could i get all the files i need from there?

    Yes I did. Should i place the odexed file along with the apk or just the apk?? Also, should I change the owner to 0-root?? All of the other apps are 0-root.
