I wanted to change the default orientation on my Meizu M3 Note.
Rooted the phone using KingoRoot.
Followed the following method as described here - http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/67648/how-to-change-android-default-natural-orientation
Dowloand in playstore : Root Browser
Dowloand in playstore : ES File Explorer
Open Root Browser and go to : system folder.
Then show file : build.prop and touch it long time.
in menu choose : Copy and past file in your internal or external sd card.
In Root Browser open build.prop copied file with ES File Explorer
Then modify entry : ro.sf.hwrotation=0
Must be 90 to setup default landscape mode :
In ES File Explorer save build.prop file.
Open Root Browser, go to system folder.
Delete (by menu) build.prop file.
FOR SECURITY BACKUP THIS FILE or SYSTEM BEFORE.
Go to your sd card and copy build.prop modified file.
Past it in system folder.
Touch build.prop long time and set Permissions to rw-r–r-- (0644) :
READ -> Owner -> checked
READ -> Group -> checked
READ -> Others -> checked
WRITE -> Owner -> checked
And lets all others entry unchecked and click OK.
Reboot. That’s all.
Worked fine. Screen was inverted.
The touchscreen input is not rotated according to hwrotation. So anything displayed on top-right corner of the screen can be accessed by clicking on bottom-left.
Anyways, I somehow was able to copy the original build.prop saved on SD card and restarted the phone hoping all would go to normal.
Instead, the phone stuck at Flyme rotating balloon logo.
All info I have read so far tells me that if I re-flash the phone using update.zip then I will loose all data stored on phone.
I wish to recover my data from the phone.
Okay I am able to do the following
- Boot in Fastboot Mode
- Boot to restore Mode.
- Stuck at rotating logo Mode.
Is there any way I can access the root directory of the phone and copy all data to my windows PC.
