I've got this problem. In a "fresh" install I was able to modify the screen dpi settings, to gain a bit of screen real estate, and it was working just fine. I could alter the value in /system/build.prop and the changes were reflected on the next rebbot.
However, now no matter what numer I use, it keeps using the default 240dpi value. I tried changing it manually, and also thru "Advanced Tools" (nice little app, by the way), but it keeps showing as 240dpi. One thing that I found interesting is that the build.prop file does keep the manually entered value, but said value keeps getting ignored.
I think (can't be 100% sure) that this problem started after I changed from HD to SD in display settings. Or it might be coincidence. But after that (and, obviously, reverting back to HD) any attempt to change the dpi is in vain.
I am thinking that a factory reset might do the trick, but it seems a bit exaggerate to reset the whole thing just to regain that capability.
Any ideas what could I do?
Thanks in advance.
Well, ebeb2, I had to do a factory reset. Now it's working again. I'm almost positive that switching between HD and Normal display mode is what caused my problem.
Also, when I did the factory reset, I had the dpi desntiy set to 200 in the build.prop file. After the reboot, it used that value, from start.
