If you have a Droid X thatâ€™s rooted and want to spice things up a bit, check out these hacks. These tweaks can be performed with a few simple build.prop modifications. Users that have done this have reported better battery, overall performance and a better user experience. This is a pretty straightforward hack and if youâ€™re ready to get started checkout the information after the break.
1. A Motorola Droid X. These settings are specific to this phone, but if you want to try them on your Android phone, many of them may work for you as well.
2. Root access. These changes require replacing a key system file, if you don’t have root, you’ll need to get it before gong any further.
3. A file explorer app. I recommend Root Explorer which is UKâ‚¤2.50 in the Market.
4. The ability to copy files to the root of your sdcard.
What does this hack include?
- Phone ring delay
- Scrolling speed through lists (e.g. app drawer and contacts)
- Time intervals for WiFi to look for an access point
- Dalvik VM heap size
- LCD Density
- Android 2.2 Market display
- Enable hard key lights to stay on whilst the screen is on
- Proximity delay (for screen to come back on when phone call ends)
