    This is the jist of things. First i used this temporary root thing from my android it self which is called z4root. Then i started to get other apps that needed a root phone which are root uninstaller which uninstall anything on the phone even the system stuff and ad fly away i think it called which get rids of adds from apps. Then i turned off the phone and then turned i back on. By doing this, the rooting thing should be turned off and then all these error message which said something about the android has crashed and stuff. This came up every time and the certain started to crash like browser and i could not access the setting. Then i tried to reroot it and still came up with the messages. Then i decided to do a factory reset thinking nothing would happen. Once i did this, i wanted to reinstall some apps that i have backed up which did not needed root. (btw it also said something about ui being bad). When i went to android market to reinstall apk manager so i can install those apps but it just crashes. First when i open it up it pops up something saying it crashed and then it becomes a white screen then a black screen and the only thing i can do is click home to get back out of it. The only way i think i can be able to fix this is being able to do a proper refrash but i am not able to install anything. Can people help me out?
    Thank you
    The phone is an lg optimus gt540

    I think you will get more help in your device forum, give it a shot, LG Optimus (GT540)

    I doubt it would be only for this phone. My guess is the software which i mentioned above. But i will also post a thread there to get help.

    You might be correct, but this way if you also have it posted in your device forum, maybe someone with the same issue and run into the same problem and might have a solution. Some do not read the Android Lounge section, so more eyes quicker response IMO

    Btw i did delete some of the programs on the system before restarting it. I deleted 4 but i only remember 3 of them. They were 3 that i remember were 4 square, layers and google map. These software are still not on the phone even after i did factory restart.

    No, if you deleted system apps then a factory reset won't restore them. That only wipes the user apps and data, nothing more - the assumption is that you can't change /system, so a factory reset is just an erasing of the user area (/data), not a restore of /system. So if you deleted something critical that could be your problem.

    That's the problem with "temp root" IMO - it temporarily gives you the tools to permanently make critical changes, without giving you the tools to fix problems (such as the ability to make a nand backup before changing /system, or just to use root privileges after a reboot).

    I really think that you need a device expert to help you with this. You want to back up any critical user data then reflash the phone with the original software, but I don't know how to do that with an LG. The other option would be to properly root and flash a custom ROM, but either way you need someone who knows your device to help.

    I do know how to flash it after i looked ll over the internet. My issue is mainly on how to install apk files without using market or google play. I know what softwares i need but i do not know how to install them on the phone :/
    If you are talking about flashing it from pc, then i do not know how to do that.
