    Hi peeps. I installed a Substratum theme today, and after doing a soft reboot, it worked, but I couldn't open my phone's settings app. It kept saying" settings has stopped". I used an app to go to TWRP, and cleared cache. The phone took a while to reboot, and it's stock on the home menu.. still shows settings has stopped. My volume buttons are bad , hence I can't format anymore. Clearing my cache also disabled USB debugging... So,I'm basically left with a phone without USB debugging, and bad volume buttons...

    Anyone got any knowledge to share?

    See if this helps, need be careful as it will crash things and make you factory reset . Substraum is for experience user and not having buttons work is asking for trouble.

    Seen, but it says go to recovery.. I have bad buttons remember? I can't go to recovery, or download mode or anywhere.. I'm stuck at my home screen.. So, if there's a way to use adb commands without USB debugging enabled, I think that's what I need.i don't mind doing a factory reset

    Are your on screen buttons bad or physical buttons?
    Might need a usb mouse and keyboard to navigate.

    The power button works fine, but the volume buttons are severely damaged. There’s no way I can get it fixed because of the lockdown. So, using button combinations to go to recovery mode is not possible. I also don’t have USB debugging enabled

    Update: I fixed the volume buttons, and can use adb and can boot to recovery and all. I wiped cache, data and internal storage on TWRP. When I rebooted, still same issue
