What recovery do you use? it should have adb enabled
Do you have adb setup and know how to use it?

basically what you want to do is pull the build.prop file to your computer, then edit it with Notepad [or whichever text editor you prefer]. I actually haven't edited my build.prop in so long that I don't even remember where it is.
[use "adb shell" to start a shell to find the location [use "ls" and "cd" to list and change directory, respectively]
but once you find the full path:

Code:
adb pull /data/build.prop ./
Or wherever build.prop is, make sure to update that. it will put it in the current directory of your cmd prompt/terminal. [so if you don't know, first "cd" into somewhere like "cd C:\Users\Matt\Desktop"]

Then once you edit it back:
Code:
adb push ./build.prop /data/build.prop
to push it back on your device.

If you can't get adb to work or your recovery doesn't have it, perhaps you could use TWRP. I think it has a rudimentary file browser, it might let you edit files too, not completely sure.

I hope that I helped a little bit
