    So i removed alot of bloatware with Android Mate, but I didn't back up anything. Not that my phone doesn't behave, but is it possible to get all these apps back? Maybe get my phone back to factory state if I want to???

    No, I didn't make a backup file. I now, stupid of me. But if anyone else did, in theory shouldn't it be possible for me just to download that file and then "restore" the phone back to factory state?

    Depends on what bloatware you removed. The major problem is google talk. Even if you made a backup of that, you can't just put it back into the system folder. One person has said that reinstalling using an apk file works, but no one else has confirmed this. The only reliable solution is to reflash the stock firmware.

    agreed reflashing with whatever firmware your phone shipped with is the only option.
