You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

MOD: Build.prop edits for Motorola Droid X
If you’re a fan of tweaking your Android device, then you might want to take a look at the build.prop edits that XDA forum member LexusBrian400 has been applying to his Motorola Droid X.
Changes applied include:
- Phone ring delay
- Scrolling speed through lists e.g. app drawer and contacts
- Time intervals for WiFi to look for an access point
- Dalvik VM heap size
- LCD Density
- Android 2.2 Market display
- Enable hard key lights to stay on whilst the screen is on
- Proximity delay (for screen to come back on when phone call ends)
The XDA member has posted individual settings for the above, but has also rolled everything up into one single build.prop for you to install via adb or root explorer.
For those of you who are wary to try the LCD Density mod, LexusBrian400 has also uploaded a build.prop with all changes excluding the LCD Density change.
For the full settings, new benchmark results, and to download the build.prop edits, check out the modification thread.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
