Notsure Screwed up and moved browser.apk

I knew I shouldn't delete browser.apk from the phone, but I apparently screwed up when I moved it to SD card.

Now I am not able to use the market/google play because it will force close each time.

I've tried moving the apk back and installing, but that doesn't seem to do anything as it says app is not installed. Is there a way to repair the damage I've done?

Try installing the browser.apk with this here: SdxAppRemoval-1.5.apk or System App Remover Both do the same (Uninstall/Backup/Restore System apps)

Easier way to fix it would be to use adb to push the app to /system/app.

Make sure to grab the .apk and .odex files from ur Rom. If you are using a odexed Rom also push the .odex file.

Here's an example:

adb push browser.apk /system/app
adb push browser.odex /system/app

Make sure to have adb set up and working on your computer. After you push each file, do a reboot and your browser and play store should be functional once again.

Ps. If don't have an idea of what adb is or how to set it up, follow my signature to my unbrick guide there you will find how to set up adb.

Hope this helps.
