    I uninstalled some of the bloatware and I am wondering if something happens to my phone and I send it back to Verizon could I get the bloatware back?

    Now when you say "uninstalled" the bloatware, does that mean you froze it using a debloat app? Hopefully yes, because generally it's not a good idea to delete any bloat, always either rename it or freeze it.

    Now if you did just freeze it, then all you have to do is unfreeze everything and use the one click unroot method then you can send it back with no problem. Hope this helps.

    It is much easier and safer to just freeze or rename the bloatware than completely removing it. But yes it can be reinstalled. Did you make back-ups of what you removed???

    Beg someone to send them to you is about it. LOL Outside of that a full restore. Which if you are gonna be sending it back anyway would be the best bet.

    R3L3AS3DRoot and 43V3R root for the BIONIC v2.1

    So a full restore will fix everything up?

    NP. It is always good to have an easy out for times like this. Everyone screws up once in a while. But now you know for the next time.
