Unhappy [Q] Bricked HDX7 after edited Build.prop . How to save it?

today i saw the nexus v1.1 rom and i followed the instruction
but i found a step need to edit build.prop
for convenient, i use build.prop.zip attached in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582773
after replaced the prior one and rebooted, my device bricked

now it just can show the silver logo and then the screen black when i push power 20 seconds
Or boot into <Kindle Fire System Recovery>
i reset to factory defaults twice after it bricked

Follow the guide here for how to get adb to work.

Then do the following as it sounds like you didn't change the permissions of the build.prop after copying it.

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
chmod 644 /system/build.prop

then reboot and try again.
If you can't get adb mode working you won't be able to fix this.

good luck.

You have to uninstall the Microsoft drivers for your device before you can install the ADB drivers which will allow you to get ADBworking and make these commands. There's only a dozen or more threads already for this exact problem in the general and the troubleshooting section... And they all contain links for the drivers and explain how to uninstall Microsoft drivers etc...
