    If you're not thrilled about the size of the icons on the home screen you can change that by editing your screen density.

    1. Install a text editor and a file manager (I used Root Explorer and Text Edit, both are free from the android market)
    2. Open your file manager and go to /system
    3. Make sure that folder is RW (re-writable, Root Explorer has a button at the top for this)
    4. Open the file named build.prop in a text editor (should be the last file)
    5. Scroll down and find the below line (about half way down?)

    Code (Text):
    1. # system prop for express
    2. #
    4. ro.sf.lcd_density=160
    6. Change the 160 to 180
    7. Reboot

    Now the screen content should appear larger than it was.
