Bad build.prop? Stuck at "SAMSUNG" boot screen
Hello antiochasylum and/or others
Many thanks for the guide. I hate to be the annoying guy who bricked his phone even after being provided a simple step-by-step guide, but I am. ... I got everything working perfectly (added card, rebooted, it was still there), but then for step #13 instead of entering the build.prop file and changing the model, name, device back to my AT&T Note II, I merely copied my original build.prop file that I had previously copied to another folder before I started, effectively overwriting the post-modification build.prop (not sure anything even changes here).
Now at boot, the initial Samsung comes up, followed by the AT&T "Rethink Possible", but then it gets stuck at a glowing SAMSUNG on black screen and periodically vibrates. I mounted /system and used adb to check the build.prop file, and all the correct/original values are there. I'll attach my file here in case it will help.
I'm positive this copying of build.prop into /system is the cause for this because it was the only thing I did before rebooting again.
Thanks in advance, I'll be sure to Thanks and buy a beer (if possible) for the help
