[MOD] Build.Prop Tweaks
I’ve been scouring XDA and the net for some ways to make our phones a little bit better. What I have found is that you can alter your Build.Prop to work to your advantage.
Did you know that if there is an app exclusive to the Droid X and only works for the Droid X (not withstanding hardware issues), we can change our Build.Prop from Milestone XT720 to Droid X (whatever that model number is) and get into the market and download it?
There also other “tweaks” to you Build.Prop that are beneficial in many other ways, Data strength, Video and Camera resolution, GPS lock, Power saves,…
The below is what I have been able to find, save and test for most of our builds on the Milestone XT720, but first…
Choice is something that has been fought for, relinquished, dreamt of and lost. Here in XDA we have a choice to either use on not to use. This is YOUR choice. If YOU decide to use these tweaks, any problems that arise are YOUR responsibility. Now that is out of the way, here you are.
Oh and one other thing:::::::::::Make a backup of at the very least your /system because if something goes awry while editing the Build.Prop, all you have to do is restore your /system, since that is where the Build.Prop is located.
**XT720 Users->I have not tested these on any of the MIUI builds or Fjfalcon's CM7 release (per Sebastiman -all tweaks but camera work on Fjfalcon's CM7).**
Per Fjfalcon some of these are NOT working on [ROM][KANG][2012.01.30] CyanogenMod 7.2.0 RC0 Milestone XT720
If any Devs want to use these, that is cool. Just make sure you put in your OP that they are already on there so no one duplicates them on their Build.Prop.

I presume most of us are using Root Explorer or something extremely similar. You just need to have Root access and able to edit the Build.Prop text. I user Root Explore so that is what these are based off.
1, Open "Root Explorer" and click the R/W
2, Go to /system/build.prop.
3, Long-presson Build.Prop and you’ll see a pop up.
4, Text Editor.
5, Type in those few line of words below into the last line of the text then save.
6. Reboot twice
Increase download/upload/3G speeds
ro.ril.hsdpa.category=8 (or 10,12,14) Still looking for more of these though.
For some reason XDA won't let me take out the spaces between 4096, 16384. I have edited it twice and it still shows up with the spaces on OP. Should read 4096,16384
for all 5 (default, wifi, umts, gprs and edge) with no space between 6,1 or 16384
For the "ro.ril.hsxpa" ******* 0=UMTS, 1=HSDPA, 2=HSDPA/HSUPA
Allows the phone to sleep better
Saves power when phone is sleep
Allows your wifi to scan less, saving more battery
wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=150 or 180 (your choice)
Helps Scrolling Responsiveness
Increase overal touch responsivenss
Makes streaming videos stream faster
Increases quality of photo and videos
Raises quality of JPEG images
ro.media.enc.jpeg.quality=90 or 100 (your choice)
Better camera and video taking results
ro.media.capture.flash=led ***May interfere with Xenon
Gives your phone no boot animation
debug.sf.nobootanimation=1 ***This might freak out some people not seeing their animation and cause unnecessary battery pulls***
Forces your home launcher into memory
Change the Dalvik VM heap size
can use 24, 32 is default, 48, 64
To disable usb debugging popup
To give your phone an HD effect fitting a little more on the screen, look for this in your current build.prop and change the 240 to:
qemu.sf.lcd_density=X (225 or 230) ***This has been known to cause FC’s for the Market, so may not be a good tweak but I still put it in here just in case***
To stop the phone from waking up when pressing the volume key
To make the phone ring faster when dialing out
Disable black screen issue after call
Screen ppi or font density
THESE ARE ONES THAT I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO AND HAVE NOT TESTED
To enable the hard key lights to stay on while the screen is on and not timeout
Try disabling BLN if your having trouble getting this to work
To make the phone come off of the "black screen" in the middle of, or the end of phone calls when you pull the phone away from your face
**May kill the dialer**
Render UI with GPU
Fix some application issues
Defrags database files
for I in \
‘find /data –iname “*.db”’
sqlite3 $i ‘VACUUM; ’ ; ***This might be something for devs to look into using for something, not sure what***
Credits to the following and links to their pages.
1-Per peshovec qemu.sf.lcd_density::: if that is different from the default 240 or from 160, chances that some application from the market will be reported as incompatible with your device (web market), or dosen't show in the market (phone) are great.
So use what you want, but when you want to be sure, that you see all the applications, change temporary to 240 or 160
2-Per Sebastiman all tweaks work on Fjfalcon's CM7 except camera ones (caused boot loop)
Took out spaces in net.tcp.buffersize as was a copy/paste issue from Word.doc to XDA.
Took out some of the Motorola XT720 ROM specific verbiage as this is being view by way more people/devices than the XT
Noted the some of these are not working on [ROM][KANG][2012.01.30] CyanogenMod 7.2.0 RC0 Milestone XT720
