This is a very common question for the Android Community, but trust me, I tried almost everything to change the Brand Name and Model name on my Yureka Plus phone (running Cyanogenmod Nightly Build), but actually nothing worked.

Can anyone suggest any method which can perform it on my phone?

Here is what I tried:

  1. I edited the build.prop in /system and changed ro.product.brand, ro.product.manufacturer etc. to samsung (original values-YU). And rebooted the phone, but then phone is not getting started. Stucks on the Logo screen.

  2. Then I tried changing only Model name, and the same issue happened that phone got stuck on logo screen. Never gets boot-up.

Does anyone have solution for this, please help. Thanks.

Here is the original build.prop of my phone:

  • What's the purpose of changing the brand and model name may I ask? – xangua Jul 28 '16 at 21:58

This means this CyanogenMod package is meant for multiple device models of the same codename, in your case, "tomato". CM automatically determines what model your device actually is and displays the corresponding model.

While I don't know how to manipulate that behavior, you can easily override that by adding a field to build.prop:

ro.product.model=MODEL_YOU_WANT_TO_SPOOF_AS

Save and reboot.

This is verified to work on my own CM13-running device (which also has the one codename VS multiple models situation), so I guess it'll also work on yours.
