    Even though it was set NOT to, my ZTE Merit (rooted Arearom from here) suddenly started updating about a dozen apps that I really didn't want to update. I tried stopping it but oh yes, Google Play doesn't take no for an answer when they want to do something. Finally in desperation, I yanked the battery.

    Turning back on and a few things are messed up (mainly due to some of the updates finishing before I could stop it, but I'm also missing the widget on the home screen that switches the WiFi, GPS, Screen dimmer, and updates. I can't find a way to get it back - would really like to. Any help here?

    Never mind guys. A few days later, the phone started acting up - lost ring tones, then started the endless reboot. We need a cute term for when Google bricks a phone. Can't say "the blue Google of death" like windows but it's sort of appropriate because you can ask Google for help till you're blue in the face... Anyhows - wiped the phone and redid everything and now it's working again.

    Would still love to know what that "settings" bar is and where the controls are to put it back up if deleted. It's not under shortcuts or widgets.
    Thanks guys
