I don't think I saw this in your thread but following your editing of the build.prop file I would like to add that the stock dpi of 480 was too "big" for me so after some reading I saw a few recommend 375 but they were using apps.
So by opening build.prop after remounting it as rw look for the line:
change to 375
remount to readonly -ro
If you would like to save the original just put a "#" at the beginning:
I'll look again to make sure I didn't dupe someone that's given this tip.
