What is the build.prop file?
The “build.prop” file is a system file that exists on every Android device. The file contains build information and other system properties which are used throughout the operating system.
System properties are string key-value pairs. You can create or modify a system property in the build.prop file which will be loaded when your device first boots.
The file is located at /system/build.prop. The build.prop file allows single line comments that start with a ‘#’ character.
What is a system property?
System properties are small name value pairs managed by Android’s property service. All system properties are loaded at boot. You can get the value of any system property without root access. You need to have root access to modify or create a system property.
