Default [Q] Permissions broken

Hi!
I have S4 I9505 with KitKat 4.4.2
I tried to fix writing to external storage for all apps as described here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2687734

I modified the file, restarted phone.. and now I have no internet, no wireless, no bluetooh, I cannot see my storage (neither internal or sd card), mz pc wont recognize the storages... I cannot make any backup, because I cannot write to any storage..

And, no, I haven"t done any backup of that file...
I tried to reedit but no succes...

Maybe someone can upload the original file?

Or do you have any suggestions?

you need to set permission to rw-/r--/-r--

make sure you only edit
<permission
name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"
>
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />

add only <group gid="media_rw" /> as above and save

if you only done this edit to your platform.xml then proceed to set permission as below

1. open root explorer
2. goto system>etc>permisson and mount folder as R/W
3. long press on platform.xml click permission
4. check
owner read and write
group read
others read
and click ok and reboot your phone
