    I have a simmtronics freedom pad tablet running on android 4.2.2 , but by mistake I uninstalled my mediaprovider.apk app using link2sd app. So i can't set any ringtone, sdcard not scanning, music player not working and camera not saving pictures. Please anyone help me to fix this problem.(I have the original mediaprovider.apk as backup)

    You will need to change your settings menu to enable installation from non Playstore sources and install the app by tapping on the apk file

    I think the apk file may be corrupt. I would check the version and do a search for a replacement

    I have no way of checking the file, sorry. Can you install a file manager like Astro or ES File Explorer and use that to try and install the file?

    Yes, I've es explorer and I tried this also but didn't work. Do you have any other option to reinstall. It was a system app.

    A reset won't do anything if the OP has uninstalled a system app.

    ips, are you familiar with ADB or terminal emulator?

    I'm going to bow out, sorry. It appears you need root access to install the apk and rooting is not my thing! Perhaps you could reply to El Presidente's question?

    Using terminal emulator, try this:

    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    cp /sdcard/<app name>.apk /system/app/
    chmod 644 /system/app/<app name>.apk
    reboot

    Replace <app name> with the name of the apk file.

    It's case sensitive, so if the name of the apk has capitals, they'll need to be capitals in the terminal window too.

    If that fails, I think you can do it via ES File Explorer too, I'll need to double check that though.

    It's not working, I paste MediaStorage.apk file in system/app folder by both method but didn't work. I found that there is .odex file for every .apk file in app folder but no odex for mediastorage.apk file.Is that a problem?

    You can't just paste it, you'd need to give it certain permissions via the chmod command, did you do that?

    Not sure about the odex files, I think they're created on boot?

    Ok, I'll have a look at the ES Explorer way when I'm home from work.
