I have tried to use root explorer to edit the build.prop, but I found that I can't add a new line to add something at the bottom of it. The bottom of it just has the words "dalv", and I can't add new line. Anyone can help me?

The only way to edit the build.prop on the newer LG phones is to copy and edit it on your PC with Notepad++ or some other editor. Than copy it back to your phone and copy it to system folder with root explorer. Don't forget to change permissions to rw -r -r.
