Default Great info on build.prop tweaks

As many of you know, there are high numbers of so-called "tweaks" you can add to your build.prop for "performance". However, after testing some of them I noticed quite a few actually hindered performance. I am not a follower of these "placebo" affects as many are consumed by. I stumbled across this article which was written by someone who shared the same results. Sort of a MYTHBUSTERS but for build.prop edits.

I've always wondered why people think these things can magically make your phone 100x better. Why wouldn't they be set by default then?

Lol not sure why either. Everytime I download a rom, the first thing I do is clean up the build.prop lol
