build.prop mod [FINAL] [21/11/12][/URL] [MIRROR if the link is not working][/URL]
v1. Cleaned original file and added some tweaks (see from line 139), i don't have any backup of the original rom so i can't make extreme mods
v2. Cleaned again and added some more battery&speed tweaks.
v3. Final version [21/11/12][/URL], more stable/faster connection, more battery and speed tweaks including dalvik cache, your phone will be smooth and fast than ever.

Instruction to replace build.prop with v3:
- Backup your old build.prop (it has 2 weeks of tests and it works perfectly but it's always better to backup)
- Download and copy file to /system (overwrite old build.prop file), then set permissions
- Download Andromizer or another program for clean dalvik cache
- THEN reboot (remember to clean dalvik BEFORE reboot and/or shutdown,or you may face a bootloop)

build.prop mod for Tipo DUAL[/URL]
- THIS IS FOR TIPO DUAL ONLY, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE, BUT DO NOT FLASH THIS ON ST21i -
