I'm still on the phone. Haven't shut it off. Could I possibly rename the backup back to build.prop.bak?

Ok I did that but when I open it to view, I see nothing. Would I have to restart the phone to make sure it worked?

If you look at it in the explorer, to see it you will need to refresh it. If opened actual file should see all the text
