Consider installing guest-VM software such as VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.
with a disk snapshot taken while you are in "broken mode". Then, you
can play with the configuration, launching, etc. and roll-back at any
time back into the broken state in order to try something else (or
verify that your last effort was correct).

I do this kind of thing all the time, and it is very effective.
