    Removed amazon mp3 but accidentally deleted my backup. Now my update to 2.2 failed because that app isn't there.

    What to do?

    The adb commands are

    adb remount
    adb push "whatever the amazon.apk name is" /system/app
    adb reboot

    Make sure the apk is in your tools folder

    Or you can just save it to your sd card and move it to system/app using File explorer

    Tried using Linda File Manager and got denied.

    As for the other commands, can I do this through terminal emulator or do I need adb? What exactly does remount do anyway? And will push MOVE the file or copy it?

    Thanks for your help!

    Yea, you can do it thru terminal emulator

    commands are ...

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /system/app
    mv amazon.apk amazon.bak
    cat /sdcard/amazon.apk > /system/app/amazon.apk
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    adb remount is just a quicker way to get read/write access, instead of doing the "mount -o remount" mumbo jumbo

    Also you need root explorer or any other file explorer that has su permission.

    If you did it through titantium backup it might work! I thought about SAPPIMGing my phone just so I could get that backup, lol.

    WOW... a whole week of searching the forums and dicking around with adb. *sigh*

    Thank you SO much! I don't think the program is actually installed, but I really don't care, as long as the ota update sees that it's there and installs properly, I'm good.
