Loading HDPI-Only Themes on the Galaxy Tab 2

Fans of the popular Theme Chooser have no doubt noticed that many themes have restrictions. In most cases, it’s an error that says the theme doesn’t have all the elements required for a device. Usually, these cases can even be ignored and the theme applied anyway. In worst case, you have to apply the system theme, reboot, then apply the new theme. However, some restrictions don’t have easy workarounds. For instance, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 users couldn’t flash HDPI themes on their MDPI-xlarge device. The operative word there is couldn’t.

XDA Recognized Contributor X8invisible has written up a simple guide to help Galaxy Tab 2 owners flash HDPI themes anyway. There are actually a couple of ways to achieve this and both of them are pretty easy. Of course root is required.

The first way is using an application called LCD Density Modder. Download and open the app and change lcd_density to 150. Then, flash the HDPI theme, reboot, and finally revert to 160. You’ll end up with your usual density and the HDPI theme. The second way involves using a root explorer application and manually editing the build.prop parameter for lcd_density to 160. It’s pretty much the same process, except one uses an app and the other requires manual changes.

If you’re looking to flash some HDPI themes and need to know more, go to the original thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Cameras

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start.
