Unhappy [Q] Unfortunately, Apps has stopped (Tried to install Android L APKS)

Hi,

I was trying to install the new Chrome APK manually through Root Browser from the Android L dump,
but now after putting in two files into the LIB folder all these apps started crashing.

Also : I have installed the Google Play Services 5.0 and the Google Now/Search Velvet APK but "OK GOOGLE" hotword doesn't work.
Using Google Launcher (NOT L version)

Unfortunately, Running has stopped. ( I don't have an app called Running )
Unfortunately, Root Browser has stopped working.
Unfortunately, Google Play Newsstand has stopped working.
Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped.
Spotify/Instagram/Textplus/Hangouts/Whatsapp force closes immediately after opening.

- I haven't tested to see if these are the only apps that stopped working.

These are the files that I placed into LIB folder :

Chrome.apk ( the L version )
libwebviewchromium_plat_support.so ( Not sure if I actually placed this file into the LIB folder )
libchrome.1985.65.so (When I placed this it asked me to rewrite the old one and I did without backing it up )

Now I cant change anything since Root Browser force closes. Is there any other app that I could use?

How do I fix this

Thanks

More than likely you'll have to adb delete then push the correct apks. Although since what's not working is apps I supposed you could delete what you placed in there with adb then just redownload from play store... Any way adb seems like the way to go. Look how adb commands to navigate to that folder then delete the file.

Adb is like the windows command promt (cmd) but for android. You'll need to download the android SDK for this

Here http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

List of adb commands here http://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html
Also push command here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...ithout-sd-card

Great little XDA resource here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=517874

If you don't feel comfortable with any of this you can always odin back to stock

If you want an easier, lighter adb download you can get Minimal ADB and Fastboot.
