    I know this isn't technically for the Desire or a rooted thing but I think the best people to answer visit here more often!!

    My wife has a cheap Samsung android phone with a 3" screen.

    She saw that I could get a Tweety bird (cartoon) slider on widgetlocker on my Desire so asked me to download widgetlocker for her.

    But on her 3" screen it is tiny and can barely make out what it is.

    I tried increasing the size of the PNG images (doubled them) and it made no difference.

    Anyone know how to increase the size? Is it possible?

    Long press on the slider to get the option to resize it.

    And if you've already done that, check the grid size in Settings>Look & Feel > Layout

    Not really as her phone isnt rooted.

    On my desire it looks 2-3 times bigger yet screen is less than 25% bigger... very strange

    Shootme sometimes works unrooted or take a picture of her phone with your phone, perhaps? tbh you might be better off asking in the Themes sub-forum as that's where all the widgetlocker pros are.

    I tried on my phone playing with the grid sizes just now (im at work so cant try hers) and making more grids makes the icon smaller, yet less grids doesnt make it bigger. So annoying.
