How is this done? Simple! Just go into the source files of the ROM and modify it.

How to Change Android Phone Version

Follow the simple steps below, locate the file and make the necessary changes. This file holds information related to your phone model and software version.

  • Go to /system/build.prop and open it in an editor.
  • Now look for the following lines:
    ro.product.model=PHONE-MODEL
    ro.build.version.release=2.1
  • Save, and restart the phone.

These are just the basic ones. You can edit more if you want, but be careful.
