Default Lost root after editing build.prop

I made a backup of my build.prop file before I changed anything. The issue is that after accidentally changing the sdk version to 19 (should be 17) I cannot change it back because I don't have root anymore. When I go to the Super su app it says that there is no su binary installed. So can I refresh super su zip to fix this, or do I need to re flash a rom. I don't have a recent nandroid backup, but I do have older ones if that is the only way to fix it.

Enter SuperSU and it should prompt you to update the binaries, at which time you can choose TWRP/CWM method or normal method, choose the TWRP/CWM method and it should boot into recovery and automatically update the binaries for you. If that doesn't work you'll just have to reflash your ROM.

Reflashing the super su zip was able to fix it. Thanks.
