[MOD] HC custom build.prop - Updated: 1/29/12
***Warning Dragons Ahead!!*** Do this at your own risk, I am just providing the files / scripts and can not be held responsible for any harm done to your device. It's working great for me but your results may vary,but again I am not responsible for any damage or problems you might encounter by using this mod.
This mod will not stop the ota updater from working properly and may even help pull in updates, this one should work on all builds.. It will change your build number and tab name unfortunatly there is no fix for this since the market uses this info to determine which apps to display.
Be sure to back up your original build.prop before doing this mod!!!
This mod is for HoneyComb Only
(to backup simply copy your origional build.prop file to an alternate location like /mnt/sdcard).
A little about the build.prop file and what it does:
Your build.prop file contains a lot of information about your tab. Things like what model, version of android, manufacturer and other info can be found within, but it also can control certain aspects such as display density, wifi scan time and other misc tweaks that improve overall smoothness.
This build.prop file contains the following changes:
# Makes the market and apps think your a100 is really an a500 (letting you find and buy more apps then what you'd normally see in the market)
# Speed up UI (smoother flinging)
# Battery saving tweaks
# Inet optimization tweeks
# Additional tweaks to fine tune the touch screen (still has the double letter issue when typing too fast)
# Additional tweaks to improve battery saving while tablet sleep
# Added LCD Density (you can change to smaller icons and higher virtual resoolution by lowering the density (see inside of build.prop file)
# Reorganized the build.prop file and included comments for the various tweeks
# Added settings to improve image quality when taking pictures and recording video and speed up bootimes (just by a few seconds) [thanks to tehgyb of xda]
# Added settings to improve streaming media streaming (improves youtube preformance) [thanks to Icewyng of xda]
# Added settings to improve app compatibility (less fc's) [thanks to Icewyng of xda]
Requirments: (things you'll need before doing this mod) You'll need to be rooted and have root explorer installed. (or some other method of copying the build.prop file to /system)
- Open root explorer and navigate to /system and tap the mount r/w button
- Unzip the file and put build.prop in /system (be sure to make a backup copy first!)
- Reboot and watch your tab fly even faster!
If you have problems finding apps in the market (such as gameloft games) try clearing the cache for market.
If you'd like the terminal commands (if you cant figure out any other way to copy and dont have root explorer), let me know and Ill work up the commands and post them.
