Default [Q] Broke my Google Play Services

When trying to get rid of the NLP wake locks( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2453850 ), I accidentally uninstalled the market and Google Play Services instead of just the latter.


I unfortunately did not back up via TBU beforehand.

I've tried to reinstall via TBU(Using my old play store/play services files from my HTC One), and have tried fresh installs of both via APKs found online. Hangouts at least works via these methods, and I can bring up the Play Store, but I can't add or update apps as Play Store errors out at that point.

Anyone got any ideas? I have tried uninstalling via TiBU and reinstalling, but it hasn't worked. Maybe I need to uninstall more things to be able to get the reinstall to go smoothly?

Are you running stock? I'd say make a nandroid backup and then try flashing a Gapps package from a custom ROM.

OP, you haven't provided enough information. Which phone model do you have, and which version? (The phone has at least 6 variants, and each of those variants has different software revisions.) Being you're on an odex'd firmware (stock), those things will need to match.

Go to the following link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451500

From the archive that's mis-linked in that post, you can extract the files you need. Play store is /system/app/phonesky.apk and /system/app/phonesky.odex from within that archive, and should be placed in the same directory on your phone.

How you get them on your phone in the proper place and with the proper permissions depends on what you have installed on your phone already and/or how fluent you are with a commandline. Any root file browser can be used, as can a terminal emulator or even adb via USB debugging.

Oh, and PROPER link for the archive in the above post is: http://goo.im/devs/scrosler/g2/stock...ed-D80010d.zip (For some reason, Scott points to a -V2 that doesn't exist)

(You can find all the other stuff from the stock firmware there as well. I think google play services is gsmcore.apk/odex, and google search is Velvet.apk/odex.)
