    So I bricked my phone last night. I was removing the annoying virgin boot animation sound and decided to change the animation as well. I did it twice and on the second time I got a black screen. I can touch the apps and see some things in horizontal view. Somehow I have usb debugging turned on. ive tried a few different adb scripts to remove or push and pull the file but nothing is doing the trick so far. I did a factory reset last night before I realized that I could see things sideways but now i hace no idea how to roll back the animation to the original. Can anyone help me?

    What's the full name of the file of the boot animation? Maybe I can copy it and post it.

    I had soft-bricked my N9810 the other day and it took me several hours to figure out how to fix it. I too had deleted the boot animation, though that turned out not to have caused any problem. My problem was that I had also changed /system/build.prop. It turned out that having changed the contents of build.prop was not the problem, just that the file permissions did not match the factory settings. In other words, to edit the file I had to add write permissions to it. I neglected to change the permissions back and that's what was "bricking" my phone. My fix was (root needed, of course):

    ./adb shell
    $ su
    # chmod 644 /system/build.prop

    and then the phone would boot all the way up.

    I repeat, all boot animation files are deleted on my phone and it doesn't care.
