[SOLVED] Broken android after changing partition rights
Guys, i made a noob mistake. Hoping anyone has an solution for this.
I was using "Antek Explorer XS" and set my root -> system partition to RW. Then i went to the "rights" and unticked read, write & execute for "Users" and "Groups". When i pressed ok, my whole android crashed and all receivers stopped working.
Now the phone goes into Custom recovery because it fails to boot.
Fixing permissions in TWRP does not work.
I don't know what i changed exactly, but because of my root and ME changing stuff my android is broken. Is there a way to revert this by for example only flashing the system.img? Or do i have to reflash my stock android?
I had a NANDROID made, but i lost this one when i decided to backup only data instead. It now is nowhere to be found.
Will restoring the "android backup file" fix this?
This never happened to me before. So i don´t know what to exactly do to fix this issue.
What do i have to flash or restore?
Rooted Nexus 4 on android 4.3 JWR66Y
EDIT: flashing system.img solved my problem.
For everybody who makes the same uber dumb mistake as i did... Here some detailed explanation.
Flashing system.img will NOT cause data loss. Couldn't find an answer on that anywhere.
Today i also found out using a toolkit isn't always helpfull. I tried a sdcard pull but because the toolkit rebooted my phone it messed up. When just using command prompt and the "adb pull \sdcard/Destination folder\Destination file" command it pulled just fine.
Moments after the pull and having flashed the system.img (reboot into bootloader use command prompt to command "fastboot flash system C:/Destination folder/system.img") i got my phone back.. With all data intact!
