[HELP] Galaxy Pocket S5300 (rooted) LCD dpi change boot loop
I rooted my Galaxy Pocket lately and installed LCD modder just to try changing the dpi settings. i changed the stock 120 dpi to 160 and clicked save. the phone froze and i had to pull of the battery. after i restart all i get is a boot loop. i get 3 things (1) s5300 logo (2) animated samsung logo (3) flashing samsung logo which appears just before the lock screen appears ( 1 and 2 vibrations during this) and then it loops all over again. as i understand the change i dpi is not supported for my device and it is not loading into the home screen. the solution seems to be editing the build.prop file to reassign the stock dpi value. but to access the file i have to get into adb mode and have the device available in the list. but since debugging mode was not selected before i essentially soft bricked my phone i am not able to access my device in adb mode. i am able to get into recovery mode and download mode tho.any way to edit the build.prop file from this situation??
im sure i can reflash my phone with a new firmware to get it up and going....but i would loose all my contacts and data on the phone, which unfortunately i hadnt backed up since i wasnt expecting this situation to arise. (my badd!!!!). as far as i know the only thing that prevents my phone from booting up properly is the "LCD density property line" in build.prop. Is there anyway i can just edit it back to my stock setting (dpi 120). ????
I had come across the term CWM which is said to be an alternative recovery option. does it mean i can get into CWM recovery mode from switched off state with button combos just like i get into android stock recovery menu??? and if dats possible, can i apply an update.zip from my memory card that would change this dpi setting in the build.prop some how?? how can i get clockworkmod into my system without flashing the firmware and erasing the data (without flashing)??? thanks......
or can i just change/flash the bootloader (which i understand contains all the system files necessary to bootup the phone) using ODIN flash. if so...can i get the stock bootloader from an s5300 user like u?? I know flashing would be the easiest option now..but i just want to go to all extremes to just keep my data if possible in anyway. if there is anyway to have ADB working without debugging mode on or any way to activate debugging mode from the recovery menu or download menu?
help is much appreciated.....i am travelling now and my phone is unusable......thanks a ton..
