    [UPDATED] Build.prop edits = great battery life + fast phone + full market

    UPDATED 9/4



    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

    ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=3000

    to

    ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=1000

    Now the phone rings pretty much instantly when dialing out.


    To enable better scrolling speed through lists, I changed

    windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=55

    to

    windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=60

    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

    to

    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

    dalvik.vm.heapsize=30m

    to

    dalvik.vm.heapsize=32m


    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...

    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG01B/45394:user/release-keys

    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
    build.prop]



    If you do not like or want to use the LCD Density mod, use this build.prop. Everything else is included except LCD Density
    build.prop


    Install using any method of your choice
    Method 1 - ADB

    1. Download
    2. Put the build.prop in your android-sdk\tools folder
    3. Connect your phone via usb, make sure it shows up with adb devices
    4. adb remount (or whichever way u prefer to mount ur system)
    5. adb push build.prop /system/build.prop
    6. adb reboot


    Method 2 - Root Explorer

    1. Copy the build.prop to the root of your SD card
    2. Long press on build.prop
    3. Select "Copy"
    4. Navigate to /system
    5. Click R/W in the top right corner
    6. Paste, and overwrite
    7. Reboot

    I'd also like to add, that my battery life is AMAZING.

    Enjoy

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATED BUILD.PROP


    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

    ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=1
    to
    ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=0

    Thanks 928Droid


    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

    mot.proximity.delay=450
    to
    mot.proximity.delay=150

    The delay is almost no longer NOTICEABLE at all. (It was very annoying to me personally)

    *Note - this will not include the lcd density mod, but everything else mentioned on this post included. Thanks guys! Enjoy

    UPDATED Build.Prop

    You can also edit the build.prop file right on your Droid X using Root Explorer. I had one with the media.stagefright hack and was able to edit it right on the phone. Just required a reboot after.

    Good info man. Thanks...

    You're welcome. The Root Explorer method is listed up there, under "Method 2" though


    But if you're talking about the longpress, and open in text editor, i left that out cuz this is a lot of edit, and can get kind of hairy editing so much at one time that way. And I dont want ppl yelling at me cuz they missed a letter or something

    Yeah, that's what I meant...

    Thanks again.

    EDIT:

    Just tried the LCD density mod, and although it's a great mod in can change the way some things look if you have any custom themes applied to your phone.

    Great stuff!!

    Another one to add that was one of the very few pet peeves with the DX. It drove me nuts that the button LEDs would time out all the time and required a key press to turn them back on. Coming from a Droid 1 this was aggravating, at least for me.

    Original:

    # BEGIN Motorola, a22976, 21-May-2010, IKSHADOW-5385
    # For Shadow only, NOT applied to Droid2 as requirement different
    ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=1
    # END Motorola IKSHADOW-5385


    Change highlighted in red:

    # BEGIN Motorola, a22976, 21-May-2010, IKSHADOW-5385
    # For Shadow only, NOT applied to Droid2 as requirement different
    ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=0
    # END Motorola IKSHADOW-5385

    Good stuff yourself I hesitated with this one when I saw it in the build. Had too much going on to research it. Thank you for reporting your results. Would you mind if I gave you credit and added this to the OP? Thanks again.

    Did this Dalvik VM heap size actually help?
