If you have a nand backup just restore it. Else just dirty flash the rom you are using.( without any wipes in recovery)

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
