    Hello All,

    I'm a bit of a mobile technology noob, so bear with me through this.

    I just bought the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, which is great, but my phone quickly ran out of internal storage. I search the net to fix this problem and most forums suggested that root my phone and get rid of the preinstalled bloatware. To do this, I downloaded SuperOneClick and rooted my phone, and then I downloaded Titanium Backup to my phone to uninstall all the bloatware.

    I did this successfully with a handful of the preinstalled apps, and I regained a bit of memory. However, my Contacts Storage 2.2.1 app was chewing up of my internal storage (about 40 mb) - to free that up, I wanted to convert it to a user app and then transfer that to my SD card. I backed up the program first, and then went ahead and try to do precisely that. However, the app crashed on me in the process and when I reopened it, it listed Contacts Storage 2.2.1 as an uninstalled app. I figured I could just restore the app, since this is what I thought Titanium Backup did, except it didn't work.

    Well, it turns out this is a major problem for my phone. Not only can I no longer access any of my contacts, but I get several new error messages. These errors include:

    -Backup (process com.voxmobile.syne.MobileBackup2) stopped unexpectedly
    -Process (android.process.acore) has stopped unexpectedly
    -The Application Google Services Framework (processcom.google.process.gapps) has stopped unexpectedly

    I thought I could do a factory reset on my phone to restore it to its original state and thus fix the problem, but it hasn't. I'm tempted to reinstall the android os, but I'm nervous that I might mess up my phone more if I go bungling onto another internet forum and try experimenting with things.

    Does anyone on here know what I did to break my phone and, more importantly, how to fix it?

    You can flash a room which should restore it. If you still have the apk on your SD you can use root explorer and copy the apk from the SD and paste it in the system apps folder on your root, you will need to make sure the permissions are correct i think it is rw-r--r-- then reboot your phone and it should be fine.
