[MOD] [local.prop] [CM9/AOSP ROMS] Persistent lcd density change
For those changing lcd density you have to re-apply your edits after each rom/nightly flash. This method prevents that by overriding lcd density by using a local.prop file in /data.
1) Restore stock lcd density in build.prop: either undo the manual edits you did, or reflash your rom .zip to restore the build.prop to stock
2) Get one of these files based on the density you liked to use: lcd-density-120
3) Rename it to "local.prop" and save it in /data (the root of the /data folder) - if you're on your touchpad then use any file manager to do this, or download to pc and adb push to /data
This should override the 160 lcd density in /system/build.prop and it will survive rom flashes and incremental updates with goo manager for my nightlies (until you wipe /data obviously). Of course you can reverse the changes by simply deleting the file and rebooting.
You are welcome to try to add other mods using this method but not all will work, and for some reason not all apps/games read local.prop.
The files I posted just contain
.sf.lcd_density=132" which overrides "ro
.sf.lcd_density=132" in /system/build.prop.
You can reply to this thread with other mods that you found to be working.
