Hi,

I just got my band new Xperia M2 and now want to play with some build.prop settings, as I already did with my other phones...

I just rooted it, but before I start I want to ask if anyone can share some experience, do's and dont's...

At first I want to decrease the LCD density to 200.
And are there any other optimisations to you can recommend?

regards lightwaver

Hmmm... no-one here hero can give some tips?

Well, I've tried to set some properties but, after a reboot the original values are restored... it's there any backup I need to fix?

Most likely you haven't changed system from RO to RW...
Me myself doesn't change lots of things in build.prop... Why change pixel density though?

Well I wrote into the file and saved it successfully... using a simple editor and the build.prop editor... both usually can set the file to rw or show an error if it fails...

Usually that worked fine... (on my Samsung i9000, Sony Xperia P, Asus transformer,...)

But now i had to set the attributes manually... strange...

Now it works fine...
