    So recently i wanted to change my S9 navigation bar color and i tried to use adb shell. All worked fine, i was using these commands:

    adb shell
    settings put global navigationbar_color <insert value>
    settings put global navigationbar_current_color <insert value>

    So i read that i if i insert a wrong value then phone may crash and never boot. So I accidentaly pressed CTRL-V (windows cmd prompt) and pressed enter, it didnt paste code but paste ^V symbol instead of color decimal number, so i ended with crashed phone which is not booting now. (Blue led light with samsung logo endless staying on screen).

    I really need help to recover all this. I dont want to reset my phone, i want just to change that value back to proper number, but i cant find a way to do. Tried to access phone storage to use sqlite3 on file where global setting is stored, but phone not showing in windows explorer or samsung smart switch.

    I just want to find these two strings and add the old value back to them. I dont want to reset phone and loose information just for 2 variables.

    Oh, you've gone way past that. You have to reflash the ROM. Check the relevant S 9 section of XDA Forums (different variants need different ROMS) for a 4 file ROM (that;s a ROM you can flash without wiping the phone - so you'll keep all your apps and data). Then read [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. Load each of the 4 files to the relevant section in OIdin. Then flash and go watch TV for a while, unless you like watching paint dry.

    Are you joking right ? If i flash all 4 files and it doesnt delete anything then it means it won't delete
    /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings*​.db

    where the my navbar settings has been saved. The system folder is not damaged, its ok .The problem is in this file from data directory. I only need somehow to access this file with sqlite3 or perform pull and push to change that value which causes phone being bricked.

    Samsung S9- no fastboot, frp lock (cant install twrp), recovery mode not recognizes adb . Nothing works on this **** phone.
