Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Galaxy Note20 forum to the General Help forum (since the Alcatel forum doesn't get much traffic).

First off, why?

Do you have a custom recovery installed? Can you not just re-root? If not you should probably try to wipe it and reflash a stock ROM, assuming you have or can find one.

It's important to understand that if you're not really sure what you're doing and you screw around with things like the build.prop, this is exactly what you should expect to happen..
