    lol :p

    But seriously, it's completely gone, I thought I was uninstalling something else. But nope. ):

    I haven't the slightest clue as to how I could get it back, I tried restoring it with Titanium Backup. I would even settle for a replacement, if need be(something that would always be displaying the time and my connectivity).

    I rooted using the method in the sticky (would link, but apparently I don't have enough posts). I'm pretty new to android stuff, so I don't know what other info I would need to provide.

    If you have Root Explorer:
    Try to go into:
    /system/app and look for statusbar.apk
    click it to reinstall...

    Then you may have to fix the permissions on it:

    In Root Explorer Click Mount R/W (Read/Write)
    Long Click the .apk select Permissions
    Change the permissions to:

    User: Read & Write
    Group: Read
    Others: Read

    click Okay (permissions should have changed to rw-r--r--)

    Click Mount R/O (Read Only)
    reboot

    (lemme know if you need a free explorer alternative that can change permissions)
    hope all gos well :)

    here is a all in one (i like it very much)..
    ~Advanced Tools~
    https://market.android.com/details?id=scd.atools&feature=also_installed

    Note*** all 4 tabs in advanced tools are all on the root directory at first..
    they are there so you can make one tab..
    system/app
    another tab- sdcard...
    another tab- data/data
    ...etc...so you can switch between them (pretty cool)***
    ========================
    I am partial to ~Advanced Tools~ atm
    but ... here are two more options:
    ES File Explorer

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop&hl=en

    Ghost Commander File Manager

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.ghostsq.commander&feature=search_result

    ========================

    the process is the same on either of them:
    1 mount as R/W
    2 install apk and/or place .apk and .odex to sytem/app
    (if it originally has a .odex file that gos with the .apk)
    3 fix permissions if they are not right
    4 mount as R/O
    -reboot-

    ~*~:Dcrosses fingers for ya:D~*~

    lemme know how it gos...and if need be... i can always upload the .apk from my phone for you if all else fails.

    Did you ever get your status bar back and running?

    Yeah, I'm not finding it anywhere... looks like I'll need you to upload yours. :eek:

    On a semi-related note, since I have no status bar, is there any way to put my phone into USB mode/mass storage/whatever some other way? I have other ways of getting stuff onto my mini SD card, but I'm just wondering. :thinking:
