Default Editing build.prop via recovery flashable zip

I an looking to edit the build.prop file and I have no idea on how to edit existing lines as well as add new lines. I've tried searching and I can't seem to find a decent answer.

No offence, but if you have no idea on how to edit the build prop, then you shouldn't edit it at all
That said you should install Build prop editor from play store. It's a free app from JRUMMY.

Editing build.prop is very easy. But to understand it better you should google around for a guide that shows what each line means and what lines can be modified for your device. I also suggest that you don't delete any lines depending on your rom and instead add any tweaks you may want.
