[UPDATED] Build.prop edits = great battery life + fast phone + full market
Ok, so I went through the build.prop tonight and tried a few things out. I figured I'd just post all of my edits for you guys to try and use also. Here goes...
I am listing the changes one by one w/ descriptions, as well as providing all the mods rolled up into a single build.prop which will be posted at the end of these directions. Enjoy :)
To make the phone ring faster when dialing out, I changed
Now the phone rings pretty much instantly when dialing out.
To enable better scrolling speed through lists, I changed
Scrolling through the app drawer and contacts and any lists really is now smoother
Now, to save battery by decreasing the amount of time Wifi looks for an access point, I changed
wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 60
wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 90
Now wifi will scan once every 1.5 minutes when not around a known location instead of once every minute which will save battery.
I also changed the Dalvik VM heap size from
I remember doing this on my Eris and I was able to run JIT w/ sense enabled (which was a major hassle at the time) So I'm only assuming it will help performance on the X also.
To change LCD Density (How much is displayed on screen) visit my other build.prop mod page
Here -- Droid Life Forum • View topic - [MOD] LCD Density - DIY! - Droid X
And To fix your 2.2 market to display all apps Go
Here -- Droid Life Forum • View topic - [FIX] - 2.2 Market Issues - Show All Apps
I changed the ro.build.fingerprint to...
That is the Droid 2 market fingerprint, allowing us to see all the protected apps in the market since google does not have Droid X's 2.2 market activated. Genius, Genius I tell you. :)
Now for everything listed here all rolled up into one single build.prop, including the LCD mod AND the Market fix, download this

I'd also like to add, that my battery life is AMAZING.
Ok here are a few updates.
To enable the hard key lights to stay on while the screen is on and not timeout, I changed
To make the phone come off of the "black screen" in the middle of, or the end of phone calls when you pull the phone away from your face, I changed
The delay is almost no longer NOTICEABLE at all. (It was very annoying to me personally)
