    So I've been using the app LCDDensity to decrease the sizes of the apps icons on my home screen, text, etc. It's a good app but the setting does not stick on a reboot of the Coby 7015.

    The 7015 default setting is 240, I am using and like the setting of 200.

    I did some searching and found this great hack that permanently keeps the decrease in size even with a reboot.

    [How To] Resolution Tweak (req. Root) - Android Forums

    You have to be rooted and have a terminal emulator to do this hack to the build.prop file since you will need to gain super user access, mount the system and then copy/paste the updated build.prop.

    BTW, I really like the look and hope you guys may like it also!

    P.S. Don't forget to calibrate your screen afterwards with the stylus for best results.

    Anyone have screenshots ready to compare the differences? I can pull it off my X5A if no one volunteers.

    This tweak worked great! I tested it first with the density app, then went for the permanent change. I didn't have to use ADB, just terminal emulator. Thank you, everything looks MUCH better now at 200 instead of 240.

    I'm having trouble getting "LCD Density Change" to work just temporarily. My 7015 is rooted, and when I start the program, it confirms that I am currently set at 240. However, after confirming a change to 180 or 200 and after the reboot, nothing has changed! Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Go ahead and try editing your build.prop. You can change it back afterward if you want to. If it works, it could just be the density changer you downloaded.

    ADB instructions

    Open terminal on PC

    $adb remount
    $adb shell
    #cp /system/build.prop /system/build.prop_bak
    #exit
    $adb pull /system/build.prop build.prop

    Go to the folder on you computer where adb puts files.
    Open build.prop with gedit (linux) or notepad (win)
    Find the line

    ro.sf.lcd_density = 240

    and change the value to 180 or 200

    ro.sf.lcd_density = 200

    click save and close.

    $adb push build.prop /system/build.prop
    $reboot

    *this is in case the link to the other instructions goes away. All of this can be accomplished with the terminal it just takes some extra doing.

    Wish I had a before picture but if yours is stock well... then you know this is much better. lol. It also makes the Kindle app look great on the lowest text size.

    Keep eye on the memory leak problem. Boot shows 256MB but in the operations you loose 102MB with 154MB is what's available. Once everything is loaded available RAM can be less the 70MB.

    I've had the memory leak even prior to rooting. Have you noticed that this hack can cause a larger leak? I haven't noticed but would like to find out how to stop it from happening.

    What is your available ram after you boot? First of all, it should never say that the total amount of ram is 154mb after boot. Second is that you shouldn't have 70mb available after booting and nothing running yet.
