Newbie goofs erasing app in red: clipboard service out of order!
I did remove clipboard UI & save service, though I strongly need them!
I thought they would restore automatically after reboot.
Is there any way to repair that mistake, I mean something else than to do a system reset?
Resetting the whole phone would be a huge work because I installed, among others, map apps to use my phone as GPS unit for very long hikes.
(An issue occurred when I tried to copy a page of an ebook, which made my phone to freeze and rendered useless clipboard whereafter each time I wanted to copy text. I read this "method" of erasing data somewhere in a forum, and applied it unaware of what I was doing.)
Thanks for your help, Bernard

Factory reset won't help, because you deleted a system apps.
Factory reset will only erase user data.

You have 2 options:
1- Flash a firmware via odin
Flashing a firmware won't erase your phone.

2- Flash and install the missing apps with custom recovery.
I can give you a flashable zip that contains "Clipboard save service" & "ClipboardUI service" to install from a custom recovery, but i don't know if it will work with your installed firmware.

HELP !
What is the Kies Application BnR ? I bumped phones with my friend earlier today, and ever since then I've had that application downloaded on my phone and it won't give me the option to uninstall or disable. Is it some sort of hacking app or what? It says the app gives permission to do basically absolutely anything and everything to my phone..

My biggest concern is KNOX. Are you sure that the Knox services written in black are safe to remove like with Titanium Backup? As KNOX is built into bootloader, i am a bit picky at disabling or removing KNOX components.

Thanks.

S4 i9500.
