I have accidentally disabled Samsung Home (process.com.sec.android.app.twlauncher) from my Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830.

Now apps won't open so I can't access settings etc to try to rectify this.

How can I restore the aforementioned twlauncher?

    What did you do to disable it? Do you have another launcher installed? Even non-samsung apps fail to open? – Ryan Conrad Jan 20 '13 at 23:32
  • Did you try restart your phone and checked? – sparkey Jan 21 '13 at 3:51
  • I wanted to install Whatsapp but received a warning that there was not enough memory and apps should be deleted. In my enthusiasm and ignorance I deleted twlauncher. This was not intentional and I was not installing another launcher; so, no launcher no apps, which also means I access nothing. I did try switching off and re-booting, but, as expected, nothing changed and my 'phone is useless. – Rynso Jan 21 '13 at 15:50
  • Can you not extract twlauncher from another system ROM dump found elsewhere and push it across - oh wait, just realized, are you rooted? – t0mm13b Jan 21 '13 at 16:42
  • I understand a bit what "rooting" means but I don't believe my phone is rooted. I relied on the operating system not allowing me to delete any installed app essential to operating the phone. @RyanConrad In my last response I said I had tried switching off and re-booting. Re-booting may have been mis-leading, as I do not know how. I switched off & back on again, but when the phone is starting up, it immediately shows The app.Samsung Home.......has stopped unexpectedly. Force close is the only option but the message re-appears & no other functions are available. – rynso Jan 21 '13 at 18:48
