I was messing around with my Note 3's build.prop file to play a game which was created for tablets only. After I was done with editing I just pasted back my backup build.prop file from sd card and restarted the device. Now all I see is a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 Screen and then everyrthing is black. I tried to install CWM via odin but CWM wont boot either. I know I can flash a new ROM with Odin but i don't want to lose my files, any way that i can fix my build.prop back? Or recover my files? Thanks

    CWM is a custom recovery and has nothing to do with your current version of Android. If you just flash your actual firmware with Odin then it shouldn't wipe your /data partition and you keep all your data. Because you actually have CWM installed I suggest doing a Nandroid backup (full backup) of your phone before flashing and/or editing the build.prop file again.

  • Did you change permissions when putting build.prop back into the system.

Flash your stock rom with odin, you will not loose the files on the internal storage
