    Are the system applications you downloaded earlier actually in your "Downloads" folder?

    You should have said that; no worries.

    Try this:
    Code:
    C:\Users\person> cd Desktop\downloads
    C:\Users\person\Downloads> adb push *.apk /sdcard/
    C:\Users\person\Downloads> adb shell
    $ su
    # mv /sdcard/*.apk /system/app/

    So when the # appeared, you typed "mv /sdcard/*.apk /system/app/" and pressed enter?

    Yeah, I just remembered you can't use the "mv" command to move something from the sdcard to an internal folder for whatever reason. Hold on...

    EDIT: Just use "Root Explorer (File Manager)" to move all of the .apks on your sdcard to /system/app/. There should be a "multi-select" option. :p

    Once you do this, make sure you edit the permissions for the applications once they're moved to the /system/app/ folder. Than, reboot. Should be fine.

    Ok, here we go. I'm making this "How To" with the assumption that your computer skills are at the basic level. Please don't get offend if I give you step by step on the simple stuff. Anyway, here we go...

    Assumptions:

    1. You are using a computer with Windows XP/Vista/7.
    2. You have the ability to install devices and software on this machine.
    3. You accidentally deleted on of the required apps that allow the Droid X to function properly.
    4. That your computer has the software that can extract Zip files.
    5. That you have Java installed. If not you can get it here: Java files for Windows 32bit If you're running a 64 bit operating system, this file should still work.
    Part 1. Installing ADB on your home computer.
    6. You are registered at AllDroid. If not, go here and register All Droid Registration You will need this to download files that are required.

    1. Click on this link to download the zip file for setting up ADB.
    2. Save the file to your Desktop.
    3. Once the file is completely downloaded, double click it and extract the Android SDK .Zip file to C:\AndroidSDK (this should name the new folder created AndroidSDK in the C directory.
    4. On your phone, click Settings > Applications > Development and make sure USB Debugging is on.
    5. Now we need to install the ADB driver. Here is the instructions I used.[QOUTE]Download the attached .ZIP and expand it somewhere you can find it (eg. c:\ADBDrivers_v3).
    Plug your phone in via USB. Either Windows will install a few drivers and you won't get any prompts, or you'll be prompted for the location of the ADB driver (select the folder you expanded the files to earlier).
    If you don't see any prompted, open device manager (Start Menu, right-click on My Computer, click Manage. In the window that comes up, scan the tree at the left, locate "Device Manager" and click on it.)
    Look for a device with a yellow exclamation mark. Assuming you don't have other devices missing drivers or otherwise misconfigured, this should be your DX.
    Right-click the DX and then click "Update Driver"
    Click "Browse my computer ..."
    Click "Let me pick from ..."
    Click "Have Disk..."
    Click "Browse..."
    Browse to the folder you created in the begining (it should contain the folders amd64 and i386)
    Click "Open"
    Click "Ok"
    From the list select "Android Composite ADB Interface"
    Click "Next"
    You might get a dialog saying "Installing this device driver is not recommended...". If so, click Yes (we know it's a valid driver from Google)
    If all went well, you should see "Windows has successfully updated your driver software"[/QOUTE]
    1. The zip file is here.
    6. After you installs the drivers, go to the Start menu and type cmd into the search bar (Vista or higher) or click Run then type in cmd (XP) to open the command prompt. Or click on Start, All programs, Accessories, and click on "Command Prompt"
    7. Type the following into the command prompt window (hitting enter at the end of every line):

    cd\
    cd android-sdk-windows\tools\
    adb devices


    Part 2. Copying the apps back over.
    1. In the Command Prompt window, type (hitting enter at the end of every command):

    adb shell
    su


    2. *DO NOT CLOSE THE COMMAND PROMPT WINDOW* You should now see a # sign. If you do, go to step 3. If not, your phone is probably not rooted. If that's the case, let's do Mr. 1 Click C++ root. Directions are located here. Type su in the Command Prompt window after rooting again.
    3. Ok now that you're rooted. We're going to need those app files to copy back over to your phone. Here is the link for that zip file.
    4. Extract this zip file to this folder "C:\android-sdk-windows\tools".
    5. Ok, let's mount the system folder on your Droid X. In the Command Prompt window, type (hitting enter at the end of every command):

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    6. It should go back to the # prompt again. Now we're going to copy all the apps back over by typing this command in the Command Prompt window(hitting enter at the end of the command):

    cp *.apk /system/app

    7. If it ask if you want to replace or over write a file, tell it yes by hitting y and then enter. Once all the files are copied over, type this command and hit enter:

    reboot

    8. Unplug your phone and keep your fingers crossed!!
