Hi there
As you may know there are a lot of themes for cyanogenmod9&10 and for AOKP but many of them are only for HDPI so here is a simple guide on how to apply the on our tab
1a.(only for ics) Download LCD Density Modder and change the dpi to 150
1b.(for jb and ics) Modify manually the density in build.prop(located in system folder) to 150

2.Reboot your tab
3.Now go to themes and apply your hdpi theme(it will say it has missing assets-don't worry just hit"apply anyway" )
4.Change the density back to 160 and reboot
Done, now you have a HDPI theme on MDPI

Enjoy

AOKP has a built-in density changer. It's in ROM Control/General UI.

As I said LCD density app doesn't work all the time( idk why) just change it yourself manually in build.prop

May be file permissions not read write or you do not use app like root explorer or root browser lite or you do not give a proper root access to them

Try to install supersu (not superuser) from google play and give grant access always to file explorer (one i mentioned previous) by it

Alternate solution: Download the CM9/10 source yourself, revert the MDPI commits, and build the ROM yourself
