I am currently on latest stock rom WW 17.0240.2009.49. I recently uninstalled some apps which are pre-installed from stock rom, such as Netflix... etc. However I didn't take any backup. In this case, how can I get those apps back? I know Netflix can be downloaded from play store, but some other apps are not available from there such as font apps as I remember.

I try to downloaded latest full WW firmware 2.28GB and placed in internal storage, rename it to UL-ASUS_I001_1-ASUS-17.0240.2009.50-1.1.225-user.zip (49 to 50). After reboot, system can detect new firmware and run the update. After second reboot, it report update failure.

In this case, is there any other way to get back pre-installed apps? Or do I need to wait for new official firmware later from Asus? I don't want to flash RAW firmware because I don't want to lost all data. Thanks!
