Hi,

It seems you have deleted an (some) essential system app(s) ?

Could you provide a list of what you have deleted? Maybe you have deleted something not related to the Gapps (since the phone boot or work "normally" without Gapps)?

No Nandroid backup or Titanium backup I presume?

Some system apps are safe to delete, others not... Dirty flash your rom should do the trick (wipe only Dalvik cache and cache partition), you won't lose anything and the apps you deleted will be installed again...

Did you delete Google Now, or Play Services? That will cripple the device with stock launcher.

Why would you delete then apps rather than just freezing them?

If you just freeze them, you wouldn't have to do it every time you update your rom, unlike deleting.

You can script it. Pretty simple, really.

Yes, I'm aware. I'm also pretty sure OP has no idea how to do that.

Are you sure it's only that? I've deleted them without issue, there is something else..., did you read my post?

You freeze them in settings/apps/all or with Titanium backup (or similar apps)... And always make a Nandroid backup or a backup with Titanium (recovery backup, I mean create "update.zip" ).



EDIT: problem solved it seems: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...588152&page=23...
