Change Your Android LCD Density With This App

Having the ability to change the density (which is more like your resolution) to something different is a feature that’s hard to get with Android, but not anymore. This simple application was released just this weekend and allows you to change the pixel density of your device to something that you might like more. Created by XDA member ex87, this application is still not 100% complete, but so far its safe and looks good from the provided video.

Here is a little information that the dev has provided for us:

Here video from app I’m developing:

Idea is simple – change LCD density
without modifying build.prop and almost on the fly.
Application will change LCD density in system, changes will not survive reboot (so if you have wrong settings, pull out battery or restart device and you are back to old settings). For now best way to change density is to reload Android software stack (it will seems like crash but it’s intended to be this way).

If your density is not enough for you, adjust it over at the thread

Android 5.1 OTA for Nexus Round-Up

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries.
