Hello,i've found something interessting in another Forum where am really active:Reduce LCD Density Setting in Build.Prop For Higher Res Look - xda-developersi'm just reposting this here because i think we can use it on the Tablet too!i Don't have my apad by me so i can't test this out yet!But maybe some brave boy or girl is here wiling to try... i also noticed that the setting is just working on some roms and on other not!the baddest thing what could happen is a black screen, i had this on my smartphone too!so i really suggest to adb pull /system/build.prop before doing anything!!(i just edited ith with subfs directly on the device and did no backup...
)just edit the following line:
Code:
ro.sf.lcd_density=240
to this:
Code:
ro.sf.lcd_density=160
i'm rather sure that there should be 240 originally because google says this to for default values:Supporting Multiple Screens | Android DevelopersLow density (120), ldpiMedium density (160), mdpiHigh density (240), hdpiSmall screen • QVGA (240x320), 2.6"-3.0" diagonal -> 120Normal screen • WQVGA (240x400), 3.2"-3.5" diagonal _> 120 • FWQVGA (240x432), 3.5"-3.8" diagonal -> 120 • HVGA (320x480), 3.0"-3.5" diagonal -> 160 • WVGA (480x800), 3.3"-4.0" diagonal -> 240 • FWVGA (480x854), 3.5"-4.0" diagonal -> 240Large screen • WVGA (480x800), 4.8"-5.5" diagonal -> 160 • FWVGA (480x854), 5.0"-5.8" diagonal -> 160there are some glitches known allready!eg. some apps didn't render correct with changed settings! but it should be usable all btw...give it a try...i'm gonna try this self not until next week because i'm on vaction the next week...Cheers Steve

I'm using the app LCD Density, but can't get it to change from 160 on my Eken M003, running rooted 1.6.1. I guess I'll have to pull build.prop with subfs and change it, but rather wait to see how your results worked? I've installed 5 diff roms so far, so I'm OK with restarting. Like to get my 800x600 screen resolution up near 1024 range. I know it will be pixeled, but want to see it anyways.

no "ro.sf.lcd_density=" inside "/system/build.prop" on my eken M003, nothing to control my 160 density. Tried 120, 144, 200 using LCD app, but no go either. Stuck on rooted device at 160, anyone get this to work on an Eken tablet? Using rooted custom ROM 1.9.1

This easy method worked for me on my X5A using Doid Explorer.1) Once your pad is on and connected to your pc, Fire up Droid Explorer.2) Navigate into /system/3) Right click on build.prop and select copy.4) Paste into a folder of your choice in windows explorer.5) Open notepad and drag build.prop into it.6) Find ro.sf.lcd_density=240 and change it to your chosen value (in my case, ro.sf.lcd_density=160)7) Back in Droid Explorer, rename build.prop to build.dud (or, whatever)8) Copy (from windows) & paste your modified build.prop into /system/ in Droid Explorer.9) Reboot your pad using the menu option in Droid Explorer (just reboot, and not reboot into safe recovery.Easy & quick.
