    Oops... sorry about the confusion... the file I was referring to in step #3 was mentioned in an earlier post in the thread. When I was writing those steps the first time, they were framed by the discussion up to that point.

    After re-reading for comprehension I figured out that the file was referring to the DX2 Dump File.

    I have a new question, on Step #6 is that supposed to be mount as Read Only or Read/Write?

    I found that when I was changing my permissions and went back to check my work, I found that they had reverted to what they were previously set to.

    oox
    oxo
    oox

    THis makes me wonder if the folder should have been mounted as Read/Write rather than Read Only which isn't specified in step 6.

    Also, if all this works, do I really need to do a factory reset in order for this process to work correctly?

    Just went through the steps with a fine-tooth comb and fixed a few things. The old Step 6 was an oversight and should have been placed at the end of the steps... as you discovered, the drive does need to be writable to change permissions.

    Thanks for your feedback and patience!

    I greatly appreciate the time that you put into this the first time and then re-writing for clarification.

    I am going to change all of my permissions to the correct settings now with the APP folder mounted Read/write rather than read only.

    I will test the restart and report on my findings. Hopefully I don't end up having to do a complete reset.

    I have just completed the full operation. I have a few things to note.

    #1. I was able to only reboot to correct my problems. I DID NOT have to factory reset my phone. That is a great resolution to this problem. I am not sure if this would be the same result for everyone, but it worked for me. I would think that a reboot should work everyone. It would seem that system looks at this folder at bootup and if the files and permissions are correct the issues should be corrected.

    #2. In regard to Step#9 where it is necessary to correct the Read/Write permissions I would amend it with this:

    While it is necessary to change permissions of the replaced files to:
    X X O
    X O O
    X O O

    As I was going through this process I wasn't exactly sure where the files that I had replaced stop and the untouched files started, but I noticed that the untouched files appeared to have the following permissions:

    X X X
    X O X
    X X X or something like this.

    I would assume that it would be be recommended to not change these but to stop.

    One last thought, the App File Expert was especially difficult to figure out how to copy and paste multiple files. I am not sure how I got it to work but I did. Maybe someone could explain that a little bit better.

    I hope this helps others when they encounter this problem. It is too bad this people have to find this out the hard way, but that is the life of people who like to push the limits of functionality.

    vvildcard, thanks for your effort on this write-up!

    Okay.. I followed all the steps, actually have the apps that I deleted on my phone again, but when I go to my contacts I get the same error... It says....

    The application Contacts storage (process com.motorola.contacts) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again...

    I'm really confused now and kinda worried that I have ruined my contacts... I'm rooted w/the one click root on 2.3.3, should I just do an sbf to 2.2 and then start from there again? or just do the factory reset???

    Any help is Greatly appreciated....
