hi SivasankarC,

terminal emulator staps is necessary ?
if I do this staps copy past your modify-platform-xml-file from twrp recovery

1- copy your modify-platform-xml-file to sd card
2- rebooted to twrp recovery
3-using mount option mounted system & sd card
4-using advanced option, renamed the original platform.xml to platform.xml.backup
5-copied the platform.xml from sdcard to system location
6- using chmod i changed the permission to 644
7-reboot the mobile

its working ?

Yes it's working at HTC Desire 601 zara ul 4.4.2 rooted s-on
