i have made a big mistake and removed some system apps without backing up them with the help of an app called "System App Remover" ... i removed the "IM - the google talk" and androids own music player (as i use some other downloaded alternative better apps) but i didn't know the disadvantages of removing these apps...my ideos now gives up force close message of Android.process.media in every reboot!! and my Gallery shows EMPTY... (while alternative app "Quickpic" shows all the SD pictures..)
similarly "Meebo IM" works very well for google talk IM but the android's IM displays notification of message (but on tabbing the notification nothing happens...)
So i want to refresh my android os 2.2 , CAN I REINSTALL ANDROID ????
i have tried the factory restore option in recovery mode ...but NO LUCK

BRICK MY PHONE OR ITS SAFE TO DO IT WITH LOCKED SIM SET ??? please quick replies to all my questions....THANKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS A LOT in Advance!!
