Hello,
After executing this on my Samsung GT-I8200N I lost the parameters application, and when I try to start "parameters" from the menu at the bottom left of the phone, I get "TouchWiz has stopped". Everything else seems to be working on the phone.
Help would be appreciated.

What about removing corresponding /data parts also? Will it left after just cleaning /system components?

@Petrioia : Yes you should install a clean Rom after that . Touchwiz depends on Gapps I guess
