    Default Serious Problems After Factory Reset (Rooted Nexus 5)

    So, yesterday I accidently screwed up my screen resolution (to 320x320, if it matters) with Resolution Changer Pro, don't ask why.

    I wasn't home and screen was too small I could only turn device off, so I did that, went to Recovery and reverted phone to Factory Settings, now, first problem was that when I tried to sign in with google account, it sayed "cannot establish a reliable data connection to the server", later, I fixed it with editing hosts file. I was happy, but when I opened Play Market, it showed No Connection, so I went to Accounts in settings, and it shows Sync Error with my phone, and in bottom "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly".

    Also LMT Launcher home button is not working now.

    If anybody is wondering, I installed LMT & Root Browser with adb.

    If you didn't make a Nandroid, I would reflash the stock images.

    Will it revert build.prop file to stock too?

    Also, I have locked my bootloader with BootLocker app, but now I can't download it, as I cannot open Google Play store. :/ (doesn't matter, ok )

    It should restore everything back to stock.

    Restore back to stock by flashing a stock firmware. It'll restore the device and all should be good again.

    Yeah, everything is getting worse, flashing to stock in few minutes.

    Just letting everybody know, after Factory Reset google sync worked after few hours, but notifications are not working nor you can receive calls.

    That's a bit odd. In the future, make sure to backup (Nandroid) before tinkering. Helps restore in situations like this.

    Depend on if you flaashed it or not, check Settings - About and it will tell you the name of the current running kernel.
