Question [Q] Moto Atrix HD Large Display?

Hey People! I have searched around and have not found what I am after. Don't mean its not there, I just haven't found it...

Anyway, is there a theme or flash I could use to make the main screen icons larger and the dial pad larger?

Reason I am asking is because my mother-in-law wants to have my motorola. But she can't see very well.. Reason for the larger buttons. All I would like to have on it would be a clock, contacts and a dial pad.

Is there any such thing available? If not, is anyone available to make it happen?

Thanks

Nova launcher free can make the home screen icons larger.

About icon, follow @channeledbymodem's idea
About text, AHD has option to make text larger under Accessibility. You can use magnification gesture too to zoom screen.
About dialer, I tried to search on google and found some big dialer pad but it may be fine if you dont mind about its appearance. In my perspective, it's really ugly

Hope it helps you.

DK

Edit: checked and I saw that magnification gesture can help to zoom the dialer pad and other areas too ( clock, contacts,..etc)

Default Editing build.prop

If you decide to edit the build.prop file you MUST BE ROOTED. It is located @ /system/build.prop It's at the bottom of the list in the directory usually. Once opened (with the File Manager of your choice - I prefer Root Browser - or Build Prop Editor - both available @ the Play Store) scroll to the end of the file and look for "ro.sf.lcd_density=300" Sometimes it's 320. Change that number to something like 400, (450 is about the max you'd want to go before you run into issues with dialog boxes being so large that you cannot select the "done","okay" or "save" button) save and reboot your device. Voila, everything is larger (except the dial pad for some reason - but, there was a suggestion in an above post for an aftermarket dial pad with large keys.

Here are a few screenshots:
