If I've learned anything the past couple of days, it's that I'm an idiot.

I rooted my Moto X. I mounted system as R/W. Changed density to 213.

Now my phone refuses to boot at all. It turns on, flashes the Bootloader Unlocked thing, and then it cuts off. Can't get into recovery, but I'll keep trying.

Am I screwed?

Thanks in advance,
Giggybyte

Fastboot your models firmware.... Same version you're on now. Or try rsdlite.

Assuming you can get either working.

Good luck!

I think rsdlite will wipe everything tho.... Be warned.

Here's a guide, see the return to stock section. You can leave data in tact if you want the fastboot way. See notes at bottom of the return to stock section for how to do that.

(Apologies if you already know all this).

After a million tries, I managed to boot into recovery. Thakfully, I had TWRP, so all I had to do was restore a backup.

Why don't newer versions of Android like custom densities? (and is there any way to get a custom density working?) I almost bricked my Nexus 10 the same way, just by changing the density. On Gingerbread, I could change my density to just about anything and I could reboot and see the effects. It seems Jelly Bean/Kit Kat has no support for it at all.

use app settings and xposed, changing android system will change the base density for all apps.

xposed has a safe mode if something doesnt like something else
