Hi

could you put on a zip for 400 dpi? Thanks for your work, Mats

I still haven't heard from you, was wondering if you still needed help.

Yes. Certain apps are only available on a specific DPI. You might see a "Your device is not compatible with this version" error message, or the app might not even show up in the Play Store at all. If you use the Xposed Framework, there's a module called 'Play Store Fixes' that will allow you to input a custom DPI. It basically tricks the Play Store by sending it the chosen DPI you entered. Works great. I use it myself.
