    I just learned how to root my Droid X tonight and was going through the "pre-approved' list of "deletable file" and ended up deleting my Text Messages icon and have been unable to open texting and this sucks. HOw can I get it back on my phone so I can send/receive text? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    You're going to either have to find the conversations.apk file and install it, or sbf flash your phone back to factory.


    All the best,

    Unzip file, copy needed .apk to your SD card, and then open it using root explorer, or any file manager(example http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.metago.astro).
    Just make sure in settings under "applications" Unknown sources is checked.

    Seeing how I have a similar problem I was wondering if
    Anyone could help.

    Im on Froyo and rooted, I accidentally deleted swype and can't figure
    how to get it back. I found the system dump, grabbed it then moved it to system/apps
    Gave user all permissions and the other two read only the rebooted. Just kept getting FCs
    Deleted. Grabbed again and tried to plain install and still got FCs.
    How do I put swype back on??
