    I was following a guide to removing bloatware using a tool as root, and accidentally removed something I shouldn't have.. My phones home button doesn't work, there is no home screen, and every so often I get an error that pops up saying that com.android.phone has stopped working.. It's at the point I can't do anything with it, except install one thing from the market, and run it.

    Any help would be appreciated.. But if nothing works, I'll bring my phone to telus and get it replaced.

    Welcome to the forum Starwiz and thanks for joining.

    If you are running a custom ROM just reflash it in recovery. If not download your stock firmware from samfirmware and flash with Odin

    That unfortunately didn't help, I had apparently removed TouchWizz, and deleted the .apk file (Couldn't find TouchWizz.apk, or SecLauncher2.apk, or anything similar to that.)

    I ended up trying to reload the stock rom over and over, unroot it. Nothing seemed to help me. I found
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqTvctlW89DtdC1qVUlLeVFTV3ZOdUtDclpBdVRQOUE&pli=1#gid=0
    And went through everything that I shouldn't delete, and everything that I had to be cautious with, and found out I was missing a launcher. So ended up getting the Play Store open, and downloaded Go Launcher. Worked like a charm.
