DONATE TO ME
Just got my note 3 a couple of days ago after selling my mega on AT&T. So nice to have root access again. Thanks for the tips. Really like getting rid of that annoying contacts pop up.
I count flying toasters to fall asleep.

Default DPI change

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:
ro.sf.lcd_density=480
change to 375
save
remount to readonly -ro

If you would like to save the original just put a "#" at the beginning:

#ro.sf.lcd_density=480
ro.sf.lcd_density=375

I'll look again to make sure I didn't dupe someone that's given this tip.
