Yes, by editing the build.prop and modifying the Product name/model and manu, you can then start running apps, etc that may not be supported

Will this work to re-perform a software update?

I have a Pantech Crossover and Pantech has a PC Program to install from Froyo to Gingerbread. By changing the software version will this fake the Windows Program into re-installing the update?

Not to my knowledge..editing the build.prop basically just fakes the devices system...I can do some research for you on this and let you know

That would be greatly appreciated. I don't know where else the windows program would pull that information from. The program may update baseband information as well but I don't think it would have any affect on what release of Android is currently flashed. The windows proggy is a Sideload install FYI.
