You don't say what file it is you deleted, but it sounds like it was a file in the ROM itself. If you're successfully rooted, simply install the ROM again to restore the file. Don't wipe any data and your Streak should return to operating condition as if you never deleted the file.

Q: Can someone suggest a link I can follow that will walk me through the root process for this phone?
A: Simple answer is no. Do your homework. No spoonfeeding here. Check the stickies and the search engine. You'll find it soon enough.

I don't know which one i have deleted. Phone starts only with dial pad. i can receive call and answer the call. other than that i can't access any other application.

Well, did you install the ROM again, as I recommended?

I tried it and it still went back to the same state. Its very difficult as I can only access the dialpad.and that's only after calling it when it starts up and shows its logo. I then have to turn on USB debugging . I followed a video on YouTube in which shows u how to flash a ROM by calling it.update.pkga and flashing it through recovery mode.

Restore your stock ROM and start over. Only this time, do not follow YouTube videos to try and root because they don't explain anything. There is information throughout both the Q&A forum as well as the sticky posts in Development that you might want to start reading.

After restoring your stock ROM, you need to do the following, in order:
  • Install ADB drivers on your PC, if you haven't already done so.
  • Install StreakMod Recovery.
  • Install a custom ROM such as PseudoCream, as custom ROMs are generally pre-rooted.
  • (Optional) Install a different baseband.
To make life easy when it comes to installing StreakMod or the baseband files, download MultiFlasher from the link in my signature. It provides the tools as well as the recovery and baseband images. It DOESN'T include ADB drivers, but those are available from links in Development.
