I would suggest to stop messing with your phone for now,

Do you have another phone / computer where you can clean install toast and use your passphrase?

Yeah it happened to me when I changed phones. I knew I had my passphrase stored somewhere, went digging and found it. You don't think you'll need it until you do. Always at least screen shot the passphrase and move it to an offline archive of some sort.

Have you considered a non-electronic backup? Simplest & most versatile would be your account's secret (beginning with “s”) written on paper and hidden somewhere that's not going to be affected by fire or dampness. Incidentally, Wietse Wind uses the name family seed to refer to the secret.

(I'm assuming you're not doing anything esoteric with “regular” keys.)
