I am not sure this is all necessary or will work for you -- this is a noob thread, so the best approach may be to look for a response from one of the highly-rated pros, not another noob like myself. I learned that if I have a new build.prop variant that I wish to try, called "build.prop" (not a zip or other form), because my phone is rooted and I installed Superuser and Root Explorer (from market), all I need to do is to replace the old build.prop in the /system/ folder. Before replacing, I back up the old build.prop. After replacing, I reboot.
Current stable config:
Phone: AT&T SGH-i717-T (the T stands for a GNote running T-Mobile)
Android: DAGr8/Collective ICS_CLC5_Alpha2.zip
Mods: app-fix-DPI.zip, BlueSystemUI.zip
