    I rooted my phone a while back and deleted some apps like the weather one and facebook, and now I have unrooted and I want to get everything back to how it was when I got the phone so I want those apps back as well, Is this Possible? If I do a factory reset it still has the Apps I deleted off of there. How do I get everything completely like it was out of the box is there a way?

    Do you just want the apps back or do you want to unroot completely?

    I'm already unrooted, and I'm trying to get the 2.2 update but it wont let me cause it keeps coming up with the (error 7) which i think is from having the files deleted. so i wanted to try and get everything back to normal like when i just got it, i dont want to be rooted i havent been for awhile, just when this new update has come out ive had problems getting it, so i'm trying to go back if thats possible, any help is appreciated

    Ah... ok :)

    Your best bet is to use Odin to go back to 100% new out of box.
    Odin directions HERE under Odin Stock Flashing.


    Alternatively, you could root again and flash a ROM that would take you to the latest update.


    If you have NEVER installed a ROM... a factory reset should fix it for you... but I'm not certain.
