  1. Suppose someone, not me of course :), had rooted their phone and confidently deleted parts of the OS, would you have any idea which part? All the other solutions you suggest have failed. Presumably the factory reset failed because some of the code was missing. How would I replace this code if it\’s possible? Android 4.4..2 on Samsung GTI515.
