Default URGENT: Build.prop deleting itself after each reboot

got an urgent and important question.. please urgent help required.!!!

I edited something in build.prop and restarted. phone goes blank after boot. Tried adb.. [build.prop not found] restored a backup of build.prop into system via adb but after reboot, same thing again and adb shows [build.prop not found again]..!! Can anyone help..?? Also didn't make nandroid backup..

Is there anyway to get the phone running again without losing any data..??

Are you either hitting fix permissions in recovery or using adb to chmod the build.prop after pushing it? If not this will happen.
