    I was messing around with font size on my droid by editing the build.prop file and I made them to large. I have a backup of the original, but when I issue the su command from the adb shell I can't see the apply button on the screen! Is there anything I can do about this, or am I just hosed?

    Try using ES File manager (click "root" option) or Super Manager app, or pay for the Root Explorer app which gives you root access.

    Use any of these apps to copy / paste your old build.prop file over the modified one.

    BTW I'm not too familiar with ADB commands, but I believe "ADB PUSH ...." should move it over, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I tried just doing an adb push, but receive "permission denied".

    Hmm there's a SU command to give Super User access, usually SU 7777 (or something like that, I'm not a ADB Shell expert)... try that if you know what I'm talking about.
