Guys, I tried changing the resolution trough NOMone , it only changes "wm size" and "wm density", but now every time I boot, "settings.phone" FC, and reboots - endless cycle.

Update: managed to work out ADB in CWM, but editing "ro.sf.lcd_density=240" didn't worked at all, any ideas what "wm size" and "wm density" also alters?

I installed CWM and tried to mount SD card, no success, dunno why, neither can use adb, so my last resort (before flashing a new ROM) is install build.prop of the tab 8.4 wifi, if anyone can help me with providing the original build.prop I'm pretty sure I can search on how to make the zip file, but if anyone could point me to that aswell, I would be much aprecciated.

[UPDATE] Found this: [ZIP] Dynamic automated build.prop editing.

Used the automated with this parameters:

wm size 2560x1600
wm density 320

Same booting problem, suggestions?

Maybe you can try to backup your current rom using cwm then do a full wipe without format your internal storage (to save your backup). After that, flash using odin. With your rom backup you could try to reconstruct the rom using the files from the current/working rom.
