    Help!! Settings > Accounts and Sync disappeared


    After rooting my Samsung Gio GT-S5660 (Android Version 2.2.1) , my Settings > Accounts and Settings disappeared.
    No idea what happened, it may be that I accidentally deleted it from the Settings.

    Not sure what to do. Do a full restore, or maybe something a little less painful...

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

    Did you simply root it or flash a ROM?

    Simply rooted it.
    Not sure what happened, but now it's gone.

    Any suggestion how to proceed from here?

    What method did you use to root it? Because it sounds like there might be a problem with that method.

    As for fixing it, I'd consider unrooting or even flashing the stock ROM over your current root, but that might cost you all your data.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I simply used the update.zip file and rebooted in recover mode. The update.zip file I downloaded from
    How To Root The Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660
    But I think you're right, it was after the rooting that the Accounts and Sync disappeared.

    What method of unrooting do you suggest? In recover mode, there is a "Factory Reset", but I guess that would put me back to Square 1.
    If there is no other alternative, then I guess I can do that. I've only had the phone for a few weeks, so there isn't that much to be lost.

    If there's no direct-unrooting option you'll have to flash the stock ROM back on which will put you back to square 1. Best I can suggest is see if there's been an official update you can install via the update.zip method. If not you may be in a bit of a bind because a factory reset, generally-speaking, doesn't delete anything in the /system and that's where the root files are stored.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Would you or anyone else know if it would. be enough to get the correct version of accountsandsyncsettings.apk and copy it to system/app? I've seen some posts that suggested that. I tried it but it didn't work. Probably because I had an incorrect file version.
    Thanks.

    I've never heard of that. It might. Fire up a terminal emulator and see if it's still there first, though.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Checked with emulator. Unfortunately, it's not anywhere in system/app.
    I'll keep looking for a solution ;-(

    If it got deleted then try pushing that .apk to the /system and see if it works.
