What are you looking to do with your build.prop?

I'm pretty sure Pio integrated a bunch of tweaks in his final versions and CMFLEX has a bunch of build.prop tweaks too.

I am looking to be able to play some of the games from gameloft because i cannot play because I paid for them and some of the games they are not compatible with my device. Basically change it to a A500.

Then all you need to do is change the a100 info to a500 in your build.prop, tweaks aren't needed to go along with it. Just make sure you make a backup of the original first.

Is there a copy of the build.prop for A500 on the form that I can go by?




And you might make a backup just in case. I messed that up many a time...lol

    **Latest Working Revision is Rev-0.4 ** 07/28/12
    **Now optional A500 build.prop for extra games/apps from Play Store**
    **Thanks das_webos_transformer for testing 4.0.3 and submitting working tweaked 4.0.3 build.prop!! **


    **UPDATE** Rev-0.4 For 4.1.1 Jelly Bean << NEW>>

    This build.prop is specifically made for ICS and Jelly Bean - has been tested working and verified to improve performance. A500 mod now is working great.

    I've been working on getting my A100 to smoking speed / performance and with my custom build.prop for ICS in combination with ezTerry's custom kernel, I think I have achieved the goal!

    Yea Yea, So why another build.prop on xda? Well I was looking through the forums and noticed that there isn't much posted for ICS, there are HC tweaks, but the ones that ARE posted for ICS seem to fail.. I am confident that this build.prop will work as long as the person installing reads the instructions and information in this post thoroughly :good:

    **EDIT 08/04/2012 - I was originally using the ezTerry kernel overclocked to 1.5 using the lulzactive governor, I am currently testing my own custom kernel that I haven't decided to release yet as I am still testing it myself before I publish - Before the build.prop, my AnTuTu Benchmark score was 6200, after the build.prop I get 7118, Both scores with ezTerry kernel and cm9 ; With stock kernel and stock rom score was <6000. So, that's just a benchmark.. -NO - The main thing is - you can actually feel the difference, and it is easily noticeable, so it's not just a benchmark thing! Here is what this build.prop does:

    Enhancements:

    *Faster Boot
    *Home Screen stored in Memory
    *WiFi Data rates increased
    *WiFi Scan rate decreased to preserve battery
    *Media and Image Quality increased
    *Disable verbose kernel logging (consumes less memory/battery)
    *HW Acceleration prioritized
    *Increased Window Manager / GUI events per second
    ...Overall Performance is definitely noticeable!


    *Optional* the A500 hack has been tested and working with games and shows extra apps in Play Store see notes below.

    File naming conventions:

    >>Please choose your android release version in #.#.# <<<

    build.prop-#.#.#-supertweak-a100-revX.X.txt == Tweaked version keeping device recognized as an A100
    build.prop-#.#.#-supertweak-a100-revX.X-A500 == Tweaked version tricking apps/system to think it is A500
    build.prop-#.#.#-vanilla-a100-revX.X-A500 == A500 trick with no enhancements or tweaks


    **Thanks to das_webos_transformer for testing making necessary changes for cm9 4.0.3 release!**

    How to install:

    *Download the appropriate build.prop file attached below that you wish to test (see above naming conventions)
    *You must have root, and you must mount /System rw (use Root Explorer or similar tool)
    *Rename the attached file to: build.prop
    *Move the existing /System/build.prop to /System/build.prop.bak
    *Move the new file to /System/build.prop
    *Reboot to recovery - Wipe Cache - Wipe Dalvik - Reboot System <<Important!! It won't work if you don't do this step!
    *Wait for System to upgrade applications and Start to Home Screen. (initial boot takes a while, don't worry after this it wont)
    *Reboot again.. Enjoy the performance


    **07/28/2012 - A500 build.prop for A100 device back up, tested and working with performance mods intact. Grab the file with revX.X-A500.txt at the end of the file name. This allows extra apps to show up in Play Store/Market and your device will be recognized as the A500 instead of A100. Please don't forget to Wipe Dalvik and Cache before booting. First boot will take a while to update the apps.

    **07/28/2012 - If you used the Rev.03 file please update to Rev.04 there was a minor error in the previous build.prop relating to windowmgr max events per second, this had a big impact in the performance and should be fixed in Rev.04

    Jelly Bean 4.1.x build.prop is in the OP - personally tested and verified by me.. I also have been putting some effort into doing some kernel optimization for Jelly Bean for all of those people who liked the ezTerry kernel back when it was fresh. So far I have done the following:

    *patched the kernel with code for compatibility with Tiny HAL in Jelly Bean with backwards compatibility with ICS
    *added all I/O schedulers including: bfq, cfq, deadline, and noop - default being 'deadline'
    *built in support for CIFS/SMB file systems, NTFS (write)
    *More cpu governors are built in including: interactive, ondemand, performance, powersave, userspace, lulzactive, and conservative
    *Optional Overclock up to 1504mhz, scaling ranges included are: 216, 312, 456, 608, 760, 816, 912, 1000, 1200, 1408, and 1504 - default is set to factory 1000Mhz

    I haven't released the kernel yet as I want it thoroughly tested before hand, and I want to be sure all source changes are fully documented. Kernel Sources are based off CM9 A100/A500 Kernel, Nvidia Android 2.6.39.4 Tegra, Nvidia Android 3.1 (Grouper) - Thanks to eZterry for the original kernel that made so many happy - I just took it into my own hands to bring things up to date with better compatibility with ICS and JB.

    Sorry if this seems to be vaporware, just want everyone testing my build.prop to know that I am currently putting more time and effort into the development of a better kernel at the moment and WILL keep my projects linked. Before I do release any zImages or sources I want everyone to be well aware that once they use my kernel that they can NOT report issues of any kind to CM9/10 developers (on the project pages) as the use of any kernel other than the one obtained with your ROM makes your device unsupported by the developer of your ROM!! If you have any issues with JB, ICS, or any ROM you use this kernel with, then you will need to report it on my kernel thread (which I haven't yet made, but once I do a release I will have the thread ready)

    No just build.prop, you will find build.prop in the file manager and select it, then it will give you options like remove, copy, chmod 755, etc. choose 755, and then reboot after doing that and see if that helps.

    Mount system first or you won't see it in there which is why you only saw bin before.

    Have I already supercharger v6, sera compatiblly? Is it a script? That is what I have to install? I neither have kernel Ezterry, nor have intention of putting it with CM9. In all that you put the link, we will prove it ... a greeting and graces.

    Hi and thanks for checking it out, it isn't a script, it just replaces the file that already exists in /System/build.prop

    The file that is attached is made specifically for ICS 4.0.4, you DO NOT have to have eZterry's kernel for this to work, I have tested it only with his kernel (which allows overclocking to 1.5ghz and the use of BFQ I/O scheduler) and had great improvements on my A100. I would like to see how it works for you with your current setup if you are on 4.0.4 If it doesn't work then you just replace /System/build.prop with the file you backed up named /System/build.prop.bak

    Don't forget to wipe cache and wipe dalvik :)

    Thanks again

    all I did was change it to work for 4.0.3. I don't know any of the changes for ics, I learned and still learning on froyo and a little cm7. But the changes required for this took about 1 minute.

    Not sure how to post an upload on xda. So https://www.box.com/shared/24e5b156fbf12858d946

    Also added linpack score.
