View Contact Pictures in Style with InfiniteView Mod

Luckily, you can now fix this issue and even apply a slick gradient to your contact pictures with the InfiniteView Contact Picture Mod.
This mod was created by XDA Forum Member AeonWorld, who shared it with us here on XDA. As you can see, the mod makes the contact pictures large squares. It is recommended to use a Facebook sync app to pull high-res pictures of your contacts for better results.

You can find the download links and instructions in the forum thread.
UPDATE: Proper credit has been given to the creator of the modification.
