Hello guys,
I have a problem , I installed the kitkat ROM and when I installed it the UI was very small and when I mean UI I mean EVERYTHING, icons, textx, overall screen resolution it was all very small and like backed away, so I installed my original PURITY rom and the UI remains small!

What can I do to fix it?

Hi,

You changed your dpi?

Take a look in the build.prop (/system/build.prop) and take a look at the line:
Code:
ro.sf.lcd_density
It should be 480...

I tried to accesses that folder but I can't find the system folder, I do not believe I changed anything I know how to change roms but i'm no experts on phones..

Edit: I just checked it and it's 370, no idea how it was changed.

It is obviously present. What file explorer you use?

Manually with the a file explorer (edit the vale to 480, save then reboot) or take a look in this thread for a flashable zip file: http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...g-zip-t2673704.

Choose the RevertToStockDPI.zip one and you should be good.

Hi,

Yes and in Purity rom it's the default dpi (480).

But I don't know why after flashed Purity rom MrFishiz always had the Slimkat dpi... Maybe due to a dirty flash? Or a script/app that keeps the Slimkat dpi?

I remember it was happen the same thing to another user in the Purity thread (Slimkat-> Purity).

I understood he was on Purity then he flashed Slimkat (he mentioned that all was small, normal) but even after flashed Purity after Slimkat all remains small...

So yes, maybe an info is missing here.
