(flashable zip released) Set device screen resolution via build.prop
If anyone is interested. I made a mod for cm11 that allows you to set the x and y DPI and set your device screen resolution via build.prop. I initially did this mod on the galaxy player. I can port it over to the tab 2 if anyone is interested.

update: flashable zip release.
please let me know if the flashable zip fails. I used a guide to help me make the zip.
this zip should work on any cm11 device including the galaxy tab 2 10.1.
just flash it via recovery like anyother zip.
I am not responsible if anything gets broken.
this mod only works with cm11. this has been built on may 15 but may work on later nightlies.
to set screen resolution. you can set ro.sf.widthpixels and ro.sf.heightpixels to whatever you want. to set custom x and y dpi you can set ro.sf.lcd_density.xdpi and ro.sf.lcd_denstiy.ydpi to what ever you want.
for resolution use only numbers ot you will soft brick. I recommend using a terminal emulator and testing various settings using the qemu equivalent properties (replace ro with qemu) untill you find settings you like.
the settings I currently use are
those settings will make the tab 2 7.0 think it has a 10 inch screen and will use xlarge layouts.
