Default [UPDATED][MOD] LOTS of Build.prop edits!

UPDATED 9/4



Ok, so I went through the build.prop tonight and tried a few things out. I figured I'd just post all of my edits for you guys to try and use also. Here goes...

I am listing the changes one by one w/ descriptions, as well as providing all the mods rolled up into a single build.prop which will be posted at the end of these directions. Enjoy

To make the phone ring faster when dialing out, I changed

ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=3000

to

ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=1000

Now the phone rings pretty much instantly when dialing out.


To enable better scrolling speed through lists, I changed

windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=55

to

windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=60

Scrolling through the app drawer and contacts and any lists really is now smoother


Now, to save battery by decreasing the amount of time Wifi looks for an access point, I changed

wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 60

to

wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 90

Now wifi will scan once every 1.5 minutes when not around a known location instead of once every minute which will save battery.


I also changed the Dalvik VM heap size from

dalvik.vm.heapsize=30m

to

dalvik.vm.heapsize=32m


I remember doing this on my Eris and I was able to run JIT w/ sense enabled (which was a major hassle at the time) So I'm only assuming it will help performance on the X also.


To change LCD Density (How much is displayed on screen) visit my other build.prop mod page

Here -- Droid Life Forum • View topic - [MOD] LCD Density - DIY! - Droid X


And To fix your 2.2 market to display all apps Go

Here -- Droid Life Forum • View topic - [FIX] - 2.2 Market Issues - Show All Apps


Now for everything listed here all rolled up into one single build.prop, download this
http://www.mediafire.com/?25xh9gjwx5meds9

Install using any method of your choice
Method 1 - ADB

1. Download
2. Put the build.prop in your android-sdk\tools folder
3. Connect your phone via usb, make sure it shows up with adb devices
4. adb remount (or whichever way u prefer to mount ur system)
5. adb push build.prop /system/build.prop
6. adb reboot


Method 2 - Root Explorer

1. Copy the build.prop to the root of your SD card
2. Long press on build.prop
3. Select "Copy"
4. Navigate to /system
5. Click R/W in the top right corner
6. Paste, and overwrite
7. Reboot

My results - 1484



EDIT: If you do not like or want to use the LCD Density mod, use this build.prop. Everything else is included.

UPDATED BUILD.PROP


Ok here are a few updates.

To enable the hard key lights to stay on while the screen is on and not timeout, I changed

ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=1
to
ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=0


To make the phone come off of the "black screen" in the middle of, or the end of phone calls when you pull the phone away from your face, I changed

mot.proximity.delay=450
to
mot.proximity.delay=150

The delay is almost no longer NOTICEABLE at all. (It was very annoying to me personally)

*Note - this will not include the lcd density mod, but everything else mentioned on this post included. Thanks guys! Enjoy

Anyone have a stock build.prop? Everything worked fine, I just want a file to fall back on.

not what you're going to want to hear... but my score dropped. my build.prop before only had the market fix and when i ran the test (immediately after reboot) i got 1390. i pasted your build.prop in and rebooted and ran test again (immediately after reboot) and the score dropped to 1304.

not a huge drop but no where near your score and certainly not a gain.

any ideas as to why?

Did you run it multiple times? I am able to get a wide range of scores that are over 100 points in difference each run sometimes....

Good post..nice one.

I was wondering if u messed with some other buil.prop.
Couple other thoughts I had to edit :

#Proximity sensor debounce time
mot.proximity.delay=450
# disable touch below 60 pixels
mot.proximity.distance=60

Seems plausible to edit the delay for quicker response .

This defines the max event window manager can
# handle in 1 s. We may adjust this # for performance
# reason later
windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=55
# This defines the min duration between two pointer event
ro.min_pointer_dur=10

Messed with this at all?

1304 (first one mentioned before)
1482
1486
1481

so ya... that's good. lol. should have run it multiple times with the old build prop to see the difference. suppose i still could, but too lazy to load the old file. hehehehe. thanks for the tip!

ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=3000

Seems like we can lower.

I like the idea of making the sensor quicker to respond.... It isn't as bad as it was on 2.1, but I still think it could be quicker

I agree...but im not sure if it will have any adverse effects if changed.
It seems to me that as of right now ..with stock rooted 2.2 it takes about 1-2 seconds for the phone to switch between landscape and.potrait ...like counting out loud One ...Two...it switches as soon as I.say two....same for you?

EDIT :
I edited #Proximity sensor debounce time mot.proximity.delay=450
Took it down to 100....and well I really can't tell if its quicker or not ...it seems it but might be a placebo effect ...hasn't given me any issues ...someone else wanna test that and tell me what they think?
