build.prop Editor

Tweak system properties

Edit your build.prop file easily. This file resides in /system and contains all the info that identifies the capabilities of your device. After editing an entry you must press a button in the top right hand corner that isn't very visible and changes may not register in the list until you re-enter the app.

Don't mess with this unless you know what you are doing and are confident that you can restore a backup via adb shell in recovery.

Requires root: Yes. The build.prop is located in /system.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
