Depending on how big that changes you made are, try this:

1) Get a clean copy of the IC4 code
2) Do a diff between that and your code
3a) Prey and hope that the diff will patch cleanly with IC 5.4
3b) If 3a doesn't work, you'll need to manually edit the file

diff and patch are command line tools, btw (you probably knew that though)
