    oh boy, i recently got my first android and love it!
    but i wanted to play around with different things so i bought a HTC G-1
    running 1.6
    i have rooted it and installed titanium backup pro and some other apps
    using T.B. i uninstalled some bloatware (well some that werent)
    i found out google talk is necessary to download from the market

    when i try to reinstall it with T.B. it just hangs up for hours
    im afraid to do a factory backup to try to reinstall everything in case
    i loose what i have now and still can not download!

    please help!
    thanks:(

    so if i uninstalled a system app (google talk) via
    titanium backup, can i do a factory reset and retrieve
    the app? or is it lost in the factory recovery?

    i tried to restore it through titanium backup and nothing?

    some one has to have had this problem:confused:

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    It is my understanding that if you completely removed a system app. A full factory reset will not recover it. You will need to find a stock rom and reflash your phone.

    well factory reset just made it real hard to get back the apps i have now... if anyone else has this problem --- find another way! root explorer would have worked i think but i only could find a samsung version of google talk, it didnt take.
    why does google make it so hard and not just have a link to it?

    oh well i guess i just need to try to flash a new rom because nothing else is working
    :(

    well in case anyone else is having these issues i found some roms come with all standard goolgle apps embedded while others dont. So before you go messing around do a nandroid backup and back up google apps!

    i did however find a few gapps (google apps) that i could flash over roms and this would give me some of the ones i was missing. but still ifind i can only use the roms that have most or all of the google apps with them

    if anyone needs links to the diffrent roms or google apps i can put them up, or if you get messages like (com.google.process.gapps) force close this seems to help some of that
    :cool:
