    Status Bar, Home Button Problem

    I have istalled an app that can make google play store think that my phone is samsung galaxy s3 so I can istall some incompatible apps for my phone (LG Optimus L9) but after I did it I couldn't install any app from the play store, recieving an error: Error retrieving information from the server. I searched the forums and found out that I have to remove the accounts data and add a new account, but there is no such option in my settings (It' only on samsung phones), I tried clearing the data and cache of google play store, google play services, download manager, but it was the same error. I decided to delete google play store and install it again. I downloaded the latest version of google play store from my internet browser and downloaded a system file uninstaller.apk from a website. I uninstalled the google play store, but then my status bar dissapeared and my home button did not work well. You know, when I exit an app with it I can hold it and open it again, but it didnt work. I could still exit apps with it but cant open them again. When I hold it nothing happen. And my status bar dissapeared. I tried sliding down but it did not appear. I tried restarting my phone but nothing happen. And the play store was still not working. Then I saw that option in the settings/backup and reset, called "fabric data reset". I clicked it and after reboot my system was like brand new, no downloaded apps, no system apps data. The play store is now working correctly,BUT THERE IS STILL NO STATUS BAR AND MY HOME BUTTON STILL DOES NOT WORK!

    Please help me fix that!

    Delete the app you installed - the one that made Google Play Store think your phone was a Galaxy S3. Removing that may solve the problem.
