Default Help, accidentally deleted people app

Hi friends, I was trying a mod to get facebook to sync my contacts which required me to delete contact storage and replce contacts provider.apk in system/priv-app but after rebooting I was getting 'com.android.systemui has stopped' error so i had to go into recovery mode and delete contacts app completely from 2-3 locations like data/data, system/app to get my phone working again but now I am getting force close when I open people app.

I tried installing gapps but it doesn't have people app built in, plz help. And I am currently travelling so I cannot download ROMs and extract files as was suggested somewhere.

Well you'll have to. Its best to flash an entire rom. Lesson learned here I think. Dont mod on the go.

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

No, system apps are all in the rom, not in Gapps.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Hi,

Try to flash the zip in attachment (wipe Dalvik cache just in case) for Contacts.apk. If you have not a custom recovery extract the file, move it to /system/priv-app, set the correct permissions like the other system apps (rw-r--r--) and reboot.
I gues you are deodexed? Because here it's deodexed...

You still have ContactsProvider.apk or not? I put it in the zip file, delete it if you still have it in /system/priv-app.
Or if you have moved it in another locaton, keep it in the zip but delete it on your phone.

The next time don't forget to make a backup...

Attached Files
File Type: zip Contact.apk.zip - [Click for QR Code] (1.86 MB, 5 views)
