Default Change the screen density

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:
# system prop for express
#

ro.sf.lcd_density=160
6. Change the 160 to 180
7. Reboot

Now the screen content should appear larger than it was.
