I guess that my device must be rooted to edit the build.prop ?

Out of curiosity, why are you on xda if you're not rooted?

Also, there is a multitouch bug in AOKP and CM9 right now where if you hold one finger and put on another, as soon as you pick up one finger the system will stop recognizing the other finger as well. This leads to a really annoying FPS experience. I'd recommend running another custom ROM that is built off stock for now if you plan on playing a game that uses this type of control.



Not all games work after that, some of them have some compatabillity issues.



I will add more working games as people tell me that they are working through this method.

I know the games downloaded via the gameloft website have been working fine, but for those of us who download the games from the market from other devices and want to download it on our S4 HTC One X now, this works.

Thanks to thatg for originally providing me with his build.prop file that he modded.
Please thank this post if this helped you!

Also, I don't take responsibility for any games that you might buy and then expect to work but they don't. This may not work for everyone (it should, but still) but if it doesn't, don't blame me for making you spend more money :/

Rohan, noob here.

im using a rooted ATT HOX, I've tried following your instruction but i just dont understand how to open/edit the build.prop file. ive used the root explorer like you advised but it doesnt allow me to do anything towards the build.prop file

again, im sorry if you find this question stupid, but thanks for your time

Mount the file system as R/W (button on top right) and then long press on build.prop and select "open in text editor".

Look over the build.prop carefully. I had trouble at first but found another instance of ro.product.model that had to get changed. Also, it is caps sensitive so keep that in mind.

Don't regret buying the AT&T version, it's better than the International version for sure. Better processor, better battery life, LTE... Once you get it tweaked to your liking you'll be happy with it.

Are there any know games that don't work for you guys who have changed the build prop? You know like you get nova working but other games that did, don't now.

Edit: I was also wondering, to those who got chainfire 3d working. How, without s-off? does it just work and install fine. I have a eVo 4g lte (rooted and HTC unlocked) and it always ends up with with a factory reset.

Undertaking a bit this thread but I done all stuff and could download it as ME: Infiltrator. But the fact is that with Nova 3 I have a flickering screen, so it's totally unplayable yet the game doesn't lag at all when I can see what I do. ME: Infiltrator stay stuck on EA logo... It's two games I'd really want to play. Can anyone help?
EDIT: I have an HTC one S (Snapdragon S4)
