I have tried to edit build.prop for on screen navigation keys, but, unexpectedly get cleared build.prop file and got saved. What can be done to regenerate file? Should reinstall zip should solve it? Or can I copy file(build.prop) by extracting from ROM zip.

  • build.prop file inside /system/build.prop is got cleared and saved. – Rahul Gopi Dec 25 '16 at 6:23

The prop file is right there in the zip (/system/build.prop, same as the path on the phone) - you don't even need additional extraction tools to get it back.

Re-installation will also restore it, but at the cost of losing all prior modifications on /system that you made.

  • @DeathMaskSalesman No, I'm fairly confident that only this prop file is not packed in the mess - this has been true for me since CM12 - that's why I added "don't need additional tools". – Andy Yan Dec 25 '16 at 0:39
  • My mistake. I just checked and you're correct. Cleaning up my previous comment posthaste. – Death Mask Salesman Dec 25 '16 at 1:14

  • @RahulGopi Yeah, and? Did this one save you? If you can't boot into OS to restore this file, do it from your recovery. – Andy Yan Dec 25 '16 at 11:23
  • I have re-flashed ROM, working well. – Rahul Gopi Dec 26 '16 at 5:19
