I was playing with the developer options on my Droid Turbo, and I think I accidentally hit Force RTL Layout, which crashed System UI. I tried rebooting and now it also says "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped". I cannot access any apps or settings, even in safe mode. Is there any way I can turn this setting off or reset the developer options, maybe through a computer? I would like to not have to do a factory reset. I am running Android 5.1

  • Is the USB debugging enabled or custom Recovery installed? – Firelord Jul 23 '15 at 22:31
  • USB debugging might be enabled, not sure about either. – Alex Jul 23 '15 at 22:39
  • If the USB debugging is enabled, then you can clear Settings data using ADB followed by a Reboot. Things should become normal then. But for that, you need to confirm whether it is enabled or not? – Firelord Jul 23 '15 at 22:42

    Run your Linux with root account if possible or open a Terminal and gain root privileges in it. After that, connect your device into Laptop using USB, type adb devices in terminal; and tell the output here. – Firelord Jul 23 '15 at 22:54

    There are two possible things here: either the Linux is not detecting the device for some other reason even when root privileges are given (can happen, but might be unlikely here), or as you thought, the USB debugging is off, in which case I would rather ask again whether Custom Recovery is installed or not (is the device rooted, or have you ever taken a Nandroid backup or flashed a ROM)? // Otherwise, factory reset seems to be the only option here, but may be other users can help. – Firelord Jul 23 '15 at 23:02
