Earlier this month I got a Kyocera Rise.

I got it rooted the first minute I got it and decided I wanted to edit the framework-res.apk file. I extracted it, edited it, and trying to replace it, root explorer force closed. I was unable to open any application because I kept getting this (the application com.android.(so and so) isn't responding) error.

I stupidly restarted the phone, forgetting that I could have adb pushed my backup framework-res.apk file. This phone has a recovery system that doesn't allow flashing updates. The bootloader is locked and Kyocera has yet to release an update, therefore we have no idea how updates are flashed. Any help at all is very appreciated :)

    Can you access the device via ADB while in recovery mode? Some devices have that enabled there by default. – Izzy Jan 25 '14 at 20:11
  • Not sure but i will try that..... how do i know it is connected to the adb shell – Daniel Baker Jan 26 '14 at 19:23
  • Running adb devices should list it as available. If not, it's not detected. But the latter could also mean driver issues (Windows: check Windows device manager; Linux: check output of lsusb). – Izzy Jan 26 '14 at 19:36
  • ok i am about to try that right now – Daniel Baker Feb 1 '14 at 2:59
  • nope, nothing... just gave me a blank line – Daniel Baker Feb 1 '14 at 3:46
