    I was playing around with adb, and deleted some stock apps. Now I find two minor problems:

    1. When I try to give an app permission to sd card, that app crashes. Also when i try to access sd card from settings tab, settings app crashes. I think its got to do with file explorer, but not sure which app that i deleted is causing this.

    2. When I try to download something, say from google drive, the download wont start, nothing happens. I am guessing its got to do with downloads manager which i deleted.

    Would be great if anyone would suggest what can I do here.

    Thank you so much for the link, but I'm really not looking to have to flash, if there is an apk file available for the apps.

    Is there a way to get the Storage Access Framework (SAF) back without having to flash. That would mostly solve my problem

    Depending on just which system-level apps/services you've deleted, there might not be any APKs available. A lot of manufacturer and/or carrier specific apps are integrated into the device's ROM/firmware and not openly accessible to consumers. Flashing the ROM might be your only option.

    Thank you svim for your time and advice. I agree, flashing seems to be the only option, but I am very iffy about the whole process. My device works fine without the two apps, I think i will let it pass for now. I'm open to more suggestions if anybody has any.

    Did you use “pm uninstall -k --user 0 <name of package>”

    If yes, that doesn't remove the app from the system partition, only the user. You can do a factory reset and get the removed apps back.

    Or if you know the package name this should work to reinstall it without resetting:
    adb shell cmd package install-existing <name of package>

    If you disabled apps through ADB:

    Cant thank you enough @kate, it actually worked. Just reset my device and it all came back. Had no idea that it was only removed for the user and not from the phone entirely. This is a great way of debloating, and if something goes wrong(which very often it does), you can still go back to normal by a factory reset. Thank you once again
