I didn't notice any changes in how movies looked but it does fit more info on the screen which is cool. I looked at my Evo next to my wife's stock Evo and I like mine better now with it set at 200.

Seems like the dev took down the links to the free download. Anyhow, this is just a properties setting that you can change yourself if you're rooted and know a bit of adb shell and unix.

The file you need to edit is build.prop located in /system

The relevant part of the file looks like this:

Quote:
# density in DPI of the LCD of this board. This is used to scale the UI
# appropriately. If this property is not defined, the default value is 160 dpi.
ro.sf.lcd_density = 240
Change that number and reboot. Course, you'll need to know how to use adb shell and the vi text editor

Found this download link: LCD Density Changer 3.0.apk

Just did a nandroid backup and installed the apk.

Lowered it to 200. Not sure how I feel about it, there is so much empty space and it's not like I can put anything there. I'll try it out for a day or two and see how I feel about it then.

The default is 240 right?

Yeah, I found that the resulting display can either look good or look really wrong. It really depends on if the app/widget was developed with absolute or relative display sizes specified.

Some apps clearly have some sizes hardcoded absolutely while other elements are relative. Looks really ugly; text not lining up with the graphical part underneath, etc. I decided to go back to stock 240.

I used this for about an hour before I realized it was really messing up the display of some apps and games.

Some games have poor support for the Evo's screen as it is, and this just made things worse.

So... what is this doing in laments terms for those who are a decent bit lost here? *raise my hand*

Is this jacking up the actual screen resolution or something?

after reboot a window should pop up asking if you want to keep the settings, hit yes.

I guess the easiest way to understand it (though probably not entirely correct) is like you said changing the resolution. The issue is all of your apps might not scale properly. Make sure you have compatibility mode unchecked. Also this can be used with any rom, it's just best to use a launcher other than sense.

This is the Evo forum, so not sure how many people know enough about the rooted droid to help.... but if it's anything like the Evo, there should be a way to turn on your phone and go straight to the bootloader. For the evo, it's achieved by holding down the power button and vol-down button when the phone is first turned on. There's probably some equivalent way to do that for the droid, no? Once in the bootloader, you should be able to select "recovery" from the menu. From there, you can nandroid restore, or flash a working ROM.

problem here as well with my rooted evo.
changed density form 240 to 200, now the phone wont boot the display; it gets to the startup screen sound, but the screen never comes up..
I can boot into recovery, but not sure what to do; should I wipe data/factory reset to get rid of this program?
I am on a mac, so not sure how to push ADB commands..

Thanks so much if you can help!

tried wiping cache but no go

If only I had a nandroid backup..would wipingdata/factory reset get rid of that program and the files that it changed, and get the phone to start up properly?
