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.

What are some common build.prop tweaks?
Some common system properties include:
☆ro.sf.lcd_density: controls the device density.
☆ro.telephony.call_ring.delay: the number of milliseconds between ring notifications.
☆persist.adb.notify: flag to show/hide the ADB debugging notification.
☆lockscreen.rot_override: flag to enable/disable rotating the device when the screen is locked

My device is rooted when I open the app superuser rights are granted. I add a new system property that shows in the list namely ro.config.media_vol_steps can I set the value to 30. Click save and it says operation failed. If I created an error dialog for one of my apps and all it says was operation failed I'd get fired. Can you not possibly include some more information to help you troubleshoot then operation failed!?
