Make Sure You have to Backup First

Press Thanks If you like

Your Android must have rooted
if not then root first http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2682080

now install Root Explorer or ES File Explorer

Then follow this Method:

Root Explorer Method

Step 1: Open Root Explorer ("allow" superuser if first time loading) and you should be at the root partition. / Scroll down and select "system". You should now be located in /system.
Step 2: Select the "Mount R/W" button at the top. The "r/o" to the left of the button should change to "r/w".
Step 3: Long press build.prop and "Open in Text Editor".
Step 4: Now Add Or Edit Tweak. ( here is a Tweak "http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2747637 )
Step 5: Select the "menu" button on your phone and then select "Save Changes". Root Explorer will make a nice build.prop.bak backup for you.

Step 2: You should be at the sdcard partition. /sdcard Select the sdcard image in the top left and it should change to a home image. You should now be at root. / Scroll down and select "system". You should now be located in /system.
