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.

No, system apps are all in the rom, not in Gapps.

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...
