obviously, change the part "CHANGETHISTOSOMETHINGELSE" to the descriptive hostname that you want

note: make sure the file permission remains the same as before

Thank you.

ro.product.device - Change the device name

I found the string, but it's only vivo, not the long "Android_###########" I see on my router.

Thank you.

Perhaps if you explained the purpose of changing the device name, someone who has experienced the same issue may be able to assist or provide an alternative solution.

Nothing special, just found this option under CyanogenMod and would like to keep using it within Sense.
