I must say I'm very surprised that ES File Explorer causes bootloop while Jota Text Editor does not.

Can you confirm that ES File Explorer still causes problems, even in its latest version ? That would be quite surprising !!! :eek:

Moreover, I have tried editing build.prop with Jota. It doesn't want to save the modified file...

Please forgive me, but again, I'm surprised. I'm no expert, but I don't understand how a text editor simply "can" cause boot loops, sometimes yes and sometimes not.

In this topic, I read a clear explanation : ES Explorer's carriage returns would not be "unix compatible". OK.
But if that's true, then there should be a problem always, not only from time to time.
And most of all, I can't imagine a second that the developers of a widely used app, made especially for Android, would skip an error as huge as the compatibility of their carriage returns !
So if that error has existed, I can't imagine that it wouldn't have been corrected in the next version of the app, months ago.

I'm not trying to prove you wrong, and I don't mean to offend anyone. I'm just trying to understand from a cartesian point of view, that's all. Can somebody help me understand this ? Thank you. :)

previously I had bootloops while editing with es file explorer

then I was working on a flashable zip edited the updater-script with es-file explorer and while flashing got an error after Googling got that updater-script's line break code is wrong so edited it with jota and changed line break code with it and and then it was a successful flash

I am not talking technically, its my experience

maybe the reason could be something else, I just wanted to inform everyone

you should ask the estrongs for brief details

Yes, it will work & that is how people create winzip Custom ROM(s). I recommend you download http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.2.3.html and open build.prop in that and edit.

Do I really need to do this first?

"before editing write these commands in terminal:
setprop dalvik.vm.verify-bytecode false
setprop dalvik.vm.dexopt-flags v=n,o=v
rm /data/dalvik-cache/*
rm /cache/dalvik-cache/*
reboot"


Cant I just edit the file on my computer using Notepad++ and replace it?

SO, I do that, copy the file to my computer and edit it with the notepad++. Then I replace the file and reboot the phone?


When i put this ones "rm /data/dalvik-cache/*" and "rm /cache/dalvik-cache/*" I get this message "rm failed for /data/dalvik-cache/", permission denied. Also I cant reboot it with the command. (tried with abd and with terminal)
