    :mad: Deleted one too many apps in my quest to remove VM crapware on the Samsung Intercept, now I can't install new apps. I did Titanium Backup before making any changes, but I can't restore it even though I am root with BusyBox enabled; Titanium Backup shows it but there's no RESTORE button for that app.

    Download Manager 2.1-update1
    Downloads 1.1.0

    Anyone have the apk files for the stock standard Virgin Mobile Intercept on hand so I can reinstall them?

    Many thanks in advance, and also for all the solid advice I've received here so far.

    Can't help you with the file but in Titanium,

    menu > Batch > scroll down restore missing apps with data and click run

    If missing apps misses your app, you'll need to run restore all apps with data which will take significantly longer.

    If you used root explorer to remove things, consider moving the crapware to your sd card instead of deleting. If you make a mistake, you can move it back, change permissions and you're good to go.

    Same happened to me using SystemApp remover. I noticed that if I removed gtalkservice.apk or any system apk that had "talk" or "Voice" in the title, it would not let me download apps from the market. Luckily I backed up everything using recovery before I started deleting stuff so I just restored everything. That app lets you backup the apk before deleting the programs also.

    What is "Where", and should I try to kill it?

    Nope....You can remove something you shouldn't with ANY rooted phone.
    Not a z4Root Problem.

    Thank you. However, back to my original question:

    Anyone have the apk files for the stock standard Virgin Mobile Intercept on hand so I can reinstall them?

    Well, of course. It was supposed to be a bit of a joke, but are you saying that there are other apps on the Market that root your phone for you, and that z4root was removed for some other reason?
