So I have quite a dilemma on my hands. I wanted to try something, so I installed a root DPI changing app. I must have set it incorrectly, because when I rebooted, everything was so large that I couldn't even unlock the device. So I followed the application's advice, I copied the build.prop backup to /system. And I went into a bootloop. Then I tried copying the stock build.prop for my device to /system, but it didn't help any. Everything else seems to work fine. I have TWRP installed, and I have a good backup, but it's on a USB drive, and the data partition is ~6.5GB, so it won't go back on my phone. So here are my options, as I see them:
- Fix build.prop, of which I don't have the original file.
- I have no idea how to do that.
- Restore from my TWRP backup.
- I have the backup on a USB drive.
- TWRP doesn't seem to want to recognize that there is a backup on the USB OTG.
- The data file is 6.94GB. (over Android's 4GB file size limit) So I can't move it back.
- Dirty re-flash the OS while keeping my data.
- I don't know how to do that.
- I've heard that problems persist if that's done.
- Wipe EVERYTHING and start from scratch.
- Obvously, I don't want to do that.
