To open up build.prop for editing, go to Dev tools -> Terminal emulator -> then enter the following commands (every newline = enter)

su
cd system
ls
(check if build.prop is in this directory, it should!)
vi build.prop

Edit away!

I haven't found a way to save yet, since pressing ESC to exit editing mode closes the terminal emulator… (@devs, what am I doing wrong?)

Currently build.prop is not writable. So you cannot edit it yet.

Can you tell us the use case for editing build.prop?

A wrong build.prop may cause the software does not boot. And the user may have to reinstall the software if that happens.

To spoof another Android device to get Instagram working.
Once I can edit build.prop or have Instagram working I will buy this!
