Just re-flash firmware/rom. That should fix it.

Welcome to forum ElijahEwing and thanks for joining.

Your best bet will be to download your firmware from Samfirmware
Then flash this with Odin which will reinstall the firmware along with all the apps, including Touchwiz.

Hi i'm in the same situation but I can't flash the firmware because (at least i think) my phone wasn't in USB debugging mode when I accidentally deleted TW launcher. Thus when i try and flash the firmware i get a fail. bit stuck at the moment - tried factory reset and everything but the lack of TW persists. any ideas?

As Shotgun84 said, boot into download mode and install new firmware using Odin.

ETA; guide here:

It could be that you have kies running in the background as this can interfere with Odin
It may also be worth trying a different USB port/cable if possible.

On my rooted tmobile samsung galaxy s2 that is now running on the latest ics firmware, I deleted some useless apps, and accidentally, twlauncher was one of them. I basically cant do anything on my phone now. What can I do to solve this problem? Please help, as I need to be able to use my phone asap.

Also, I tried downloading the new firmware for my phone on the sammobile website, but after like 10 minutes, it says "failed." I'm really worreid that my phone is totally gone..


Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.
You may be better off starting a new thread as this one is solved according to the title.

What 'failed'? The download? You'll just have to keep trying till you get a successful one.

You could try downloading from one of the threads below depending on whether you want carrier branded or rooted firmware.

[ROMS]Official i9100 carrier branded firmware download for Odin Flash - xda-developers

[ROM+Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares LPE/Q/7/2/F/S/4/7/G/9/W/D/F Download - xda-developers

The second thread also includes a guide showing how to flash with Odin.

If the Odin flash failed you'll need to give more details to get help.

HTH.
