Ok so i don't know how to say this but.
-I had rooted my phone.
-Then i wanted to get Facebook Home
-So i deleted the file for facebook(because usually you aren't supposed to be able to delete facebook just un-install the updates.)
-And then time passed and i unrooted it, next day it got stuck in a bootloop and i fixed it. But now i can delete facebook.
-Does anyone know the file to put it so i can't delete it just un-install to stock lg l9 facebook. And where to put that file so it won't fully delete and so it'll just say uninstall updates?

I would really appreciate it if you can help!!



The attached image is what I mean, I need it to say uninstall updates.

Copy the facebook.apk from your data/app folder to your system/app folder. Reboot the device and it will be a sudden app again; however, i recommend leaving facebook as a user app... that way it is overwritten when it updates

because when you move it to the system folder it's not a downloaded app... it's a system app after that step.

Next time dont delete and do uninstal apk.
Thats make the problem.
The apk is not only the apk file in system->apk.
There is another files in other directories.
Try to clean whit some program.
