Q: I want to change the dpi setting, currently at 240dpi on CM7, how can I go about it?
A: u have to edit build.prop in the System directory. when u open build.prop in text editor, u will see “ro.sf.lcd_density=240″ a few lines down. change 240 to your preferred value. i think i read somewhere that going below 190 is not recommended. don’t forget to reset the phone for it to take effect.

Q: I’ve installed honeycomb but cannot seem to save the lcd density after i change it. any suggestions?
A: Manual way, if you are feeling adventurous you can do it manually: Install Terminal Emulator by Jack Plevich and SuperUser by ChainsDD run Term and type: cat /system/build.prop > /sdcard/build.prop
Exit and open the file on your sdcard in your fav text editor app and edit the LCD Density setting. It’s right near the bottom of the file, go back to Term and type: su ‘(should now get a prompt to allow access) rm /system/build.prop cat /sdcard/build.prop > /system/build.prop. Reboot.
