    Anyone, i need help?
    4 Months ago, i rooted my phone. Then i installed Busybox Pro. I am thinking what is the purpose of Smart Install and Symlinks, so i checked it and install binary. After a week, i decided to unroot my phone. I uninstalled Busybox Binary, but a warning dialog comes out and says 'we do not have responsibility on what will happen' something like that and i accidentally press yes to uninstall busybox. Then something went wrong, i can't open the busybox app, it says that 'i must fix the binaries' something like that and decided to unroot. After that, i noticed that i cannot connect to any wifi, use my mobile data, use my sim card, no more internet. And the second is i can't turn on OEM unlocking anymore. Then i try terminal and type ls, mv, cp but not found at sh anymore. I thought that Busybox deletes almost of /xbin files, anyone can help me?

    Think you'll need to re-flash the ROM, either the original manufacturer firmware, or an appropriate custom ROM for your particular phone.

    what phone do you have? do you still have a custom recovery? if so did you make a nandroid backup? if you have a custom recovery, but did not make a nandroid backup, then that was your first mistake. if you do not have a custom recovery then that is your second mistake....or first depending on how you look at it....LOL

    if you have a custom recovery you can flash a custom rom. if you do not then you will have to flash a firmware update made specifically for your phone.

    I suppose if you've got the files that you deleted, and you know where they go, then possibly might be able to restore them via ADB. Otherwise you'll have to re-flash the whole ROM. Of course I can't help you with that, as I don't know what phone you've got, and the Ministry of Magic confiscated my scrying glass.
