    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.

    when u say stock media player, u mean the video player? music? and i was pretty sure that a factory reset should get ur stock apps back

    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
