    After rooting my Droid X I deleted some .apk's tending to remove most of the bloatware. But I guess I accidentally remove something so the market does not work properly. Well the issue is that I'm able to launch the market app but when I'm going to download any app it stays stuck at Starting Download and it never downloads. Thats the only issue with the phone but everything else works like a charm. I also attached a file that contains all the apps under /system/app. I see that I have 2 Downloadprovider.apk with one lower case d and the other capital D, not sure if that could be the problem but I tried removing the file with the (rm) command but no success. I have also tried multiple factory resets and still no go. If you can please post a link to download any root managers (.apk) to my desktop computer so I can install them on my phone will be appreciated. Here are some links that I been trying to troubleshoot this issue. Full list of apps and apks that are removable and non-removable with root - Android Forums and also this link http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/62427-how-remove-bloatware.html

    You need two things back on your phone to get it to work

    Get gtalkservice.apk and talk.apk back on the phone and then reboot.
    Problem solved?

    +1. GTalk apparently handles logging in to Google services.

    Fixed! Market Download OK!

    Thanks for the reply MiserableChimp! I had and re-installed (gtalkservice.apk and Talk.apk) them on the phone and still no downloads. I found the problem was that I had duplicate DownloadProvider.apk, one was lower case downloadProvider.apk and Capital case DownloadProvider.apk. So I remove the lower case one and it started to work again. I'm back in the game Thanks for the assist. I also uploaded a file with the commands I used.

    C:\sdk\tools>adb shell
    $ su
    su
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    #cd /system/app
    # cp /sdcard/gtalkservice.apk /system/app/gtalkservice.apk
    cp /sdcard/gtalkservice.apk /system/app/gtalkservice.apk
    # cp /sdcard/Talk.apk /system/app/Talk.apk
    cp /sdcard/Talk.apk /system/app/Talk.apk
    # rm downloadProvider.apk <== Problem file
    # reboot
    reboot

    Probably not. People have dumped /system/app, and only because there are things there that will brick your phone if missing. This one game in /data/app isn't going to hurt anything if you delete it.

    On the right of the page, scroll down until you see "Get it on mobile!" Apparently thats only the full version and not the demo, though.

    I've done it. I assumed you posted the link because you went and looked. Well I went and looked and the Droid X is not supported.

    Right. Deleting most of the apks in /system/app won't either, but no one knows for sure which are safe.

    need for speed was "uninstallable" before root. shouldn't be a problem.

    by that I mean you could uninstall it without being rooted.
