    Editing default.prop?

    I've posted this already but I didn't get any answers. So, I'm going to re word it. I want to edit default.prop to set ro.secure=0 (so I can use adb remount and adb sync) How would one go about doing that?

    I use root explorer, long press on the file u want to editand select open in text editor, then edit and save before exiting, not sure if reboot is necessary or not.

    Yeah, I've tried that but since the file is part of the ramdisk when you reboot it goes back to the way it was before you edited the file

    Re: Editing default.prop?

    Don't know. When I change mine for ring delay, and then save it, it makes a .bak file and saves the changes. Are u changing the one in /system and are u making sure that it is mounted r/w?

    No default.prop is different from build.prop. I'm trying to change default.prop so that I can use adb remount and other commands.

    adb remount does not work without modifications.
