One more thing. There is an inbuilt file manager in TWRP recovery. You can use it to restore build.prop and set permissions.

Hi,

After i made some modifications in build.prop (screen is broken so it trigger my back and menu all the times so i tried to enable softkey), my phone is stuck in bootloop on the samsung logo.

I tried to reflash my rom (omnirom) thinking that it would solve my problem formatting /system but no luck, still bootloop.
I tried using twrp file manager to restore the copy of build.prop i maded, i try to retsore permission but still no luck and bootloop.

I could use any help on this,

Thx all
