    As the title says I backed up the apks for the bloatware when I removed them. I backed up to my SD card. Well I put the apks back in the same place and installed them. When I wipe the phone the apps are removed. When I pull up the apps list. They are listed as downloaded. How do I make the phone think they are preinstalled again without the 2.3.151 SBF?

    You have to install them while your rooted and fix the permissions to make them system apps again.

    It's the 4th instruction down. Try this>>>

    -Place the apk(s) of the apps on your sdcard.

    -Use your chosen means to copy the apk(s) to /system/app (this will require making /system/app writable. In Root Manager just press the R/W key when you're exploring /system/app).

    -Click on the apk once it's in /system/app and install it.

    -Now, you've installed the program, but the system won't see it as a system app unless you change it's permissions. In Root Manager, long press on the app (in /system/app) and click on "permissions". Then make sure that only the following boxes are clicked: User Read, User Write, Group Read, Others Read.

    -Make sure you make /system/app read only again by clicking that box in the top right while you're exploring the folder.

    -Reboot phone.

    Now the apps should be loaded and the system should recognize them as system apps (you can verify by opening Titanium and noticing they're in red). This should make you good to go for whatever OTA comes. If you're unsure which apks in the system dump correspond to the apps you've deleted, just explore your /system/app and compare it to the system dump app list. Any apks in the dump but not in yours are what you're looking for.

    You may be looking at an SBF. I did this to a "T" before the froyo update and it still wouldn't allow me to update. Installed apk's, fixed permissions, deleted all Super User apk and files and unrooted. Still had no luck.

    They showed as system app's and worked properly. Don't know what happened. But the above shows you how to fix permissions properly.

    That worked thanks! I already found out what to use however. I checked other apks in the system/app folder. They all had the same permissions. So I set all the apps back to that. Made sure they were installed. This site needs a (legal) restore to stock sticky. Like if removing bloatware to BACKUP the APKs to the SD card. etc...
