    [GUIDE] How to edit build.prop on any Android Device!


    Requires a rooted ROM.
    Use root explorer or any other root browsing
    application and browse to /system/.
    Open up build.prop and look for these lines:
    ro.product.model=U30GT-W
    ro.product.brand=rk30sdk
    ro.product.name=rk30sdk
    ro.product.device=rk30sdk
    Change them to this:
    ro.product.model= SGH-T989
    ro.product.brand= samsung
    ro.product.name= SGH-T989
    ro.product.device= SGH-T989
    .
    .
    .
    Main aim for posting this is that it enables some games to run on ur device after the editing
    I.e some games that show "Not compatible with ur device"
    .
    .
    Also its a risky task to perform


    .
    .

    just make sure u av ur ROM Backup & Restoration step before performing any system folder based task

    Anyway, changing or modifying build.prop of a device to mimic another allows apps that play store "claims" can't work on your device to be available..

    Emmy1, please can you send me that your Guruslodge logo?

    I need it for something I'm working on.

    I can copy and save it from here, but I need direct the raw copy from you.

    Thanks

    Nice One … Thanks bro … build.prop is the ID CARD ( included manufacturer , model , ROM version information ) of our device . When we enter Play store to download apps/games , Play store check our device’s build.prop and shows us those apps which compatible with our device … Some apps never shows to us , if its incompatible with our device model . But we make Google play store as **** by editing build.prop … am using Samsung GT-S5570 , but anytime I make my device Galaxy S III . Its so interesting … even I make it Nexus 4 etc . I appreciate thread owner …. If we have problem to edit directly build.prop from system , you use the apps named build.prop editor apk (http://www.mediafire.com/download/y7x181t1evxckch/BuildProp Editor.apk ) . After editing build.prop , reboot ur phone and see the magic … Note- Some apps will not work though you edit your build.prop (for kernel ) Take care ..
