    Hi everyone,
    I rooted my phone-droid incredible on verizon-and deleted the facebook for htc sense app. Now I want it back bec it integrates with my contacts. Downloaded the apk and now don't know how to love it to the system/app folder. Tried astro and ES file manager but it won't work. Don't know if I should buy root explorer from the market or not or if there was a free way to do this?
    Thanks any help is greatly appreciated

    Those file managers should load the apk.

    it might be a bad .apk.
    find a copy some other place and try that.

    or

    if you rooted your phone.. did you do a nandroid backup after root?
    you can restore that backup.

    Nandroid nandroid...always nandroid before doing ANYTHING to your phone that you can't do without root. Yes root explorer will allow you to move the apk to the system folder or you can push it with adb.
