    OK, so I'm possibly the biggest idiot to ever own an Android. I rooted my SGH-T959d via SuperOneClick a few months ago and decided to remove bloatware, along with stock keyboard, and "my files". I kept the original launcher. Just an hour ago, I was playing around with my phone trying to flash a ROM through CWM recovery (which didn't work due to the infamous signature verification problem) and I managed to do a factory reset. Now, all of my old apks - including root file explorer and hacker's keyboard - are on the external sd, and I have no idea how to view them to reinstall them. I'm stuck with no stock internet as well.

    I've tried going on Google Play on my laptop and sending new apps to my device, but I can't re-register on my phone due to lack of keyboard. I am freaking out so much I'm surprised I'm typing.

    No wifi either? What exactly do you mean by no stock internet? No 3g/4g or wifi? Try another Factory Reset.

    no, the wifi my dad set up has a password. I know the password, I just can't type it in because I don't have a keyboard.

    Ouch.

    I would think another Factory Reset should bring back the keyboard.

    So I'm SOL? I deleted the actual apk file with root uninstaller.. Maybe I'll try to find the stock and reinstall via USB.

    Why can't you just power off, power up to recovery, factory reset, reboot?

    Because the actual stock files located in the factory reset package have been deleted. If you go into root and delete it, it won't come back. It's not like the half-privileges they give you when you first get the phone. I've also tried it and none of it comes back.

    I learned something new! Thanks! Sorry it comes at the price of your misfortune.

    ADB push the apk from another rom?

    Hey, no problem! And thanks, but apparently my stupidity knows no bounds. ThinkFreeOffice also serves as a file explorer, so I'll just download a new keyboard app via USB and just go from there. Thanks for replying! Love the username by the way!
