WARNING -- We do not guarantee that problems caused by the improper use of this utility can be fixed, and we are unable to help you with any such problems. We support only this app, not your device's system software. Settings Database Editor (SetEdit) is invaluable if you need it, but if you're not careful you're very likely to mess something up.

By default, for your protection, Android prevents you from modifying the SECURE and GLOBAL tables. If you have Android Jellybean or later, you can remove this protection from an ADB shell using the command "pm grant by4a.setedit22 android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS". On earlier versions, you can only remove this protection on a rooted device by installing SetEdit to the system partition.

App ChangeLog

  • * Android Q and later will warn that SetEdit "may not work properly". This is incorrect. We can't stop this warning without reducing SetEdit's functionality, and we will not do that.
  • v2018.10.31:
  • * Added support for the SetEdit Community Translation Project
  • * Due to Google Play policy changes, for the foreseeable future, there will be no more updates to the main SetEdit app. All future updates will come in the form of addons, such as the Feature Pack and the Community Translation Project.

    I really hope you read this.. I am trying to get my hotspot turned on for my Note 9 from at&t with Net10 services so I can work from home, but everytime I activated it dosen't work. I've seen a lot of tutorials were you can change the tether_entitlement_check_state with this app but this option is not showing, any reason why? Or is there other way? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. Kakap Hauzel-avatar

I will be very happy to see you provide us complete guide guide for all this app features/setting, how they works, what they do. If you already have forum or any other website that provides help/guide for this app, please let me know. It's awesome btw, you're awesome. Thnaks

Im using this to get 4G,LTE on my device.. it still shows the option yet it doesn't work, hope you will notice my request :)

  5. iBsooL4GameR-avatar

    hide navigation bar it's very neat but hope it has more closings and stuff and more easy way to learn suff to do with the app it's pretty much useless after removing the navigation bar! so you have to stick to the app just for that i need more reason's to keep this app on my phone just saying!

    navigation bar This is very cool. However, what should I do to edit "Android Properties" table on Huawei Y5 2019 Android 9? I want to change setting called "" and still it says that SetEdit is not currently supporting editing this table. I mean, OK, you probably don't support that, but is there a way to do it through adb somehow? I should also mention that I used adb already to remove protection.

    android Can you please help me? I have a LG V20 phone but when I connect any device to the hotspot it does not allow that device to go on the internet. How can I fix this please? I can connect to the hotspot but the phone will not allow the device to go on the internet

  8. Dillon-avatar

    4g only I didn't know how to enable haptic feedback on my A70. came across a forum that mentioned this app. changed the value to 1 and now it's working! thank you very much developer

  9. Anonymous User-avatar

    lg Very good app. Maybe you can figure out way to apply setting permenat after uninstall or add option to hide app from tray. Noticed if you delete somethings then add a zero when it reappears it works to hide more things. Maybe you can also add root option as alternative to adb or to add more editable fields. Extremely debloated phone for battery and took out nfc, mirrorlink, file sharing etc this app works perfect to hide these controllers from settings/ tiles as if they never existed.Great work

  10. blackhawk-avatar

    xiaomi Interesting:) Copy feature is shaded out, does not work? A search feature be nice. My bad, Thank you.

  11. Peter W-avatar

    At last. This app allowed me to disable screen pinning on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S so that I don't have to restart my phone every time I accidentally pin an app.

  12. Kailei Rundberg-avatar

    Kailei Rundberg


    Very useful! I used it to turn on haptic feedback, which my phone did not otherwise give me the option to do.

  13. rusty gh-avatar

    Awesome app! Just having the list to see what the settings are is super good, being able to adjust once you ADB privilege? Fantastic! Having the startup guardian if you purchase the add-on, brilliant! Man, thank you for your work on this! _____________________________________________________________________________________________ note to all, if you do not know what ADB is, just step back, you need to go learn about ADB, then you can come back and actually be able to try this. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Best reply to an app review ever!!!

  14. Docta Osiris-avatar

    Not bad, would be nice to see a website with more information though, trying to change the phone number on my phone, can't work out why I can't do it, I brought over my phone number from another network but like 99% of cases the phone number either stays the same as the original one or completely disappears, in my case it's the latter, seriously frustrating 😤

    awesome app, i used it for disabling "touch disable mode" in my Huawei device.

  16. Edwyn Amador-avatar

    I had a carrier limitation with my unlocked AT&T phone when trying to enable the hotspot, this app allowed me to change "tether_entitlement_check_state" value from "5" to "-1" without even being root and now after years of dealing with this finally i can enable the hotspot and use my phone data to connect via wifi on my laptop, it's amazing!! Many thanks to the developer(s)!

    Carlos Frederico Jeunon


    Awesome. Now I can change settings that the devices' manufacturer decided to keep inaccessible for me for some obscure reason. For instance, the touchscreen haptic feedback (enable/disable) in my Galaxy A50. I just can't live without it. Pity it can't edit the Java table due to Android restrictions. Suggestion: add search for settings strings. God bless you!

  18. Ravi-avatar

    This actually work without room.. In Miui i was in a lot of trouble due to screen pinning... This helped me to get rid out of that.. and thanks to reddit for suggesting me this app..

    It does properly work on both p20 lite and p30 pro on Android 9 (emui 9.1). I'll see after update to android 10. So far, so good.--> Edit to response from dev: yeah, it is not your fault if the app is not working as before on Android 10 because you are, guys, doing a great work on it (or you did because I do not know how to update it lol), but it works great atm. If it ever stop working on Android 10 or 11, I'll let you know. I now, just need a site to update the ap. Reply me as u can. Peac out.

  21. Sunny Saini-avatar

    Very nice App. Please don't stop updating the App. If Google restricts you, then kindly release offline APK installs on your website or Github.

  23. Lorelei Viojan-avatar

    Very useful and i like it! I've downloaded this application to turn off "Touch-disable Mode" of my Huawei P20 Pro phone. So easy to use. I just opened it and scrolled down to Touch-disabled mode and changed the value from number "1" to "0" and it worked! Thank you developers for this amazing application!

  24. Larry R-avatar

    This editor works great, with a very clear and intuitive interface. I am using it on a OnePlus 6 running Android 10 (Oxygen 10.3.0).. Despite a warning appearing on launch saying it may not work, it works fine for what I needed. I got this to fix the notch issue created with the new Android version. Worked like a charm.

  25. Himal Sharma-avatar

    Nice app but there are two major problem they are restricted permissions and i once enabled the current network preference viewer such as your sim card in connected to 4g network now which is in notification pannel just left side of the battery icon but once my phone was reset i can't find that setting even though it is not removed from there so please provide us permissions and a guide that that does what operation

    I am fascinated with the replies which developer team is giving. Everything is users fault. They have nothing. They are perfect. Great goings guys. I am impressed with your software. No issues with me if i have to downgrade my mobile to use your software. No issues with me if your software has limitations. Its still perfect, like you people said..its not your fault, not your responsibility, you never claimed it.

    This "screwdriver" is different. You'll also lose the screw(s) you've touched with it if you suddenly decided to discard it. Don't uninstall this app if you've already edited any key with it or else that key will also deleted when you uninstall it.

  47. Adam Barone-avatar

  54. S. Gong-avatar

    Good in general, but you need to run ADB commands to edit system and global tables. Maybe you should ask for root instead of asking to enter ADB commands.
