    Hey,

    I got my Galaxy S2 (l9100) yesterday and my friends told me that it is best to root the phone and remove unnecessary applications.
    So basically, I mistakenly removed the stock media player. I tried restoring the phone to basic factory settings but it did not do anything with the apps.

    Is there any way to restore stock apps?

    Thanks in advance.

    The music player is the missing one, the video player is fine.

    im sure a factory reset should do it. however, if ur rooted, u should be familar with flashing firmware via Odin.. flash ur firmware again.. and re-root. flashing the firmware should install the stock apps again

    You mean that I should apply a stock firmware and then re-root?
    Because right now I am using some guide from xda-developers, and I just want to make sure I am not doing a mistake

    Ok so after getting involved in some messy situations, now I know a little more about how Android works.
    Thank you heshanj for directing me.

    Cheers
