    i rooted my triumph with gingerbreak and root explorer. i started deleting some bloatware. everything is good. then i wanted to remove virgin's "download" app so i end up deleting the download apk that allows the phone to download from the droidmarket!! now i cant download from the market. to make it worse, without stoping and trying to find help, i figure i'll do a factory reset on my phone and maybe that will put things back to normal. that removed all apps i previously installed and now i dont have gingerbreak and root explorer either. does anyone know how i can fix this? thank you.

    Did you make a Nandroid backup? If not you can always flash a new ROM. I did the same thing you did so I just Restored my phone with a nandroid backup.

    Do you still have that "Activate"app on there?

    if you made a back up you can download Appextractor and use it to get back the apps that you'd like.

    have you tried to install a market.apk?

    You can just google and find one to install

    Before doing the factory reset you could have just downloaded the Stock Rom from here,

    http://androidforums.com/triumph-al...eodex-roms-triumph-now-resets-splash-img.html

    Unzipped the zip file

    took the download.apk you deleted from the system/app folder.

    used root explorer to move the download.apk to the system/app folder on your phone

    set permissions on the download.apk like the rest of the apk's in the system/app folder on your phone.

    reboot!


    you can probably still do this now.

    you would just need to install a terminal emulator if you no longer have root then follow these directions as the Triumph is Rooted out of the box, Ginger-break is not actually needed. You will find links below to download these 2 apps. You will need to move the files to your phone to install after downloading.

    terminal emulator download

    http://www.freewarelovers.com/android/app/android-terminal-emulator

    Root Triumph with terminal emulator instructions.

    http://androidforums.com/triumph-al...od-triumph-no-root-app-computer-involved.html

    then use this free root file manager to move the download.apk into the system/app folder on your phone and set permissions.
