    [Solved] Uninstalled system app, factory reset, now system apps are gone

    [solved, see 3rd post]

    my tablet was rooted, then i uninstalled some system apps, but i figured out some features won't work, so i unrooted, and did a factory reset, now all system apps are gone,
    i thought a factory reset will restore it back to the original stock with all system apps no matter that i uninstalled them. now i can't even go to settings->accounts and syncs, it force closes, i guess i uninstalled an app that manage accounts,

    is there a way to go back to stock with all system apps without unlocking bootloader, i don't want to do that.
    i also do not have any knowledge about unlocking,flashing,roms,...

    or can i just reinstall all system apps and do a factory reset, then it will be fine? (but i don't have backups of those system apps)

    i'm on firmware .30 ICS
    now i just want a clean system, i don't want it to be messed up like this

    After researching i found that factory reset does not restore system apps, so no surprise here.
    now i have 2 ways to have a "fresh/clean" system:

    1. root and copy all missing system apks to /system/app. But can i root now (using the 1 click transformer root tool) because i uninstalled many system apps and i don't know what they are, can this affect the root?
    if this way is ok, can someone on firmware .30 ICS please upload all the files in /system/app. Thanks a lot.

    2. flash the stock rom. but i don't want to unlock bootloader, (i don't want to void warranty), how can i flash the stock rom? (and where can i download the stock rom .30 ICS? is it the .zip file on asus support website?) i heard some people say "you can flash a STOCK rom with a locked bootloader" but in another device, not tf300.
    i think this way is best because it restores everything, which is what i want, i'm hoping i can do this without unlocking my bootloader.

    I guess if i can solve this problem, from now i will never delete any system apps. if i knew factory reset does not restore system apps i did not uninstall them . but it just does not make sense, it's called "factory reset", so shouldn't restore to "factory" state?

    Please help. Thank you.

    UPDATE: Problem solved.
    i downloaded .30 firmware from asus website, did a manual update, after updating it restored the system apps. so it solved the problem. thanks funnel71.
    to get a "clean" system i did a factory reset, now back to the beginning lol.

    so when you accidentally (or purposely) delete system apps, just do a manual update and it will restore, make sure to download the right firmware.
