STEP 1. Use Root Explorer and navigate to /data/system to find the accounts.db file. Copy the file to the root of your SDCard. Locate the copied file and open it using SQLite Editor. Open the "extras" table. CLICK AND HOLD the name field you want to edit. In my case it was the first name field.
STEP 2. Select "Edit Record". Correct your name in the Value field. Click Save. You should receive a confirmation that the update was successful. Use the back button (soft key button on the bottom menu) to get back to Root Explorer.
