I used "Root Explorer". Of course you need to be rooted. It has an text editor. You can make the text edits, attribute and ownership changes with it too. There are probably other apps out there that have similar function.
Initially I tried to transfer the file to my laptop, edit it, and transfer it back. Those are un-needed steps. If you are a developer, it makes sense to have higher power tools, but the changes here are so simple, making the changes on the phone is easiest.
