How come I cannot get into my Cricket Zio after rooting it and deleting apps?

by on July 6, 2012

Q: I rooted my Cricket Zio, so I could get rid of some of the apps that came with the phone. I deleted the system apps, but somehow I deleted the Gmail app also, now when I turn the phone on it says “Welcome to Zio”. I can’t get into the phone, does anyone know what I should do.

    If you register at this link that follows you will be able to download the stock firmware for your cricket phone. If you need further instructions on how to flash files to your device you may want to do some more reading or bring it to an authorized cricket dealer to have them reflash the OS.

    If you are unsure what to do than it would be safe not to proceed as there is always the possibility of “bricking” your cell phone and rendering it useless. Contacting Cricket support may also be helpful. tell them that it is not loading past the boot screen and they should be able to help.
