App Build.prop Editor v1.0

Rooted Android devices sometimes have to edit the build.prop files to tweak settings like hsdpa, model name displayed, or many other things, normally this has to be done either on a computer with file pushing back and forth or via cli on the device. Build.prop editor allows you to edit the build.prop files on the phone, with a friendly GUI that shows you a list of all the properties.

This app is compatible with Android 2.2 or newer and of course needs root access to write to your Android’s /system directory. Although the tool is more intended to help Developers work than to an end user but if you are on the process of learning this may be an useful tool to work with.
XDA Recognized Developer nathanpc mentions too that he is already working to port the XDA TV application into a fully native version.

Feed back is very important so please do so to help improve future versions.

This app will let you easily edit your Android’s build.prop file using a intuitive interface. Don’t forget that this is my first complete native app for Android, so it was my first contact with Java for Android (the XDA TV app was made using HTML5 and running natively because of Phonegap. I’m already working to port the XDA TV app into a fully native version, so stay tuned).

I’m not responsible for any problem caused by editing the build.prop file. I’ve tested the app and haven’t bricked my phones.

Thanks for reading.
