[Mod-ish] Screen Resolution Change - Boost 3D Performance
PLAY AROUND AT YOUR OWN RISK
TF701T runs 1600P stock, but honestly that's too high for tegra 4 to handle. Performance is not very good when running live wallpaper and some games.
So I asked @sbdags
if it is possible to change screen resolution, and here it is. You will have to change the density and screen size. I tried this on both 4.2.2 and 4.3. This will stick after rebooting.
First, you need to be rooted.
Set default launcher to nova or apex. Asus launcher sometimes crash when you are on a different density
Then, download terminal emulator from store.
Reboot after typing both commands. su is just to check for root
If running 4.2.2
on terminal and type
am display-density 160
am display-size 1280x800
High Res ish
am display-density 240
am display-size 1920x1200
If on 4.3 type
wm density 160
wm size 1280x800
High Res ish
wm density 240
wm size 1920x1200
Super High Res
to revert back, change the number and type reset for both density and resolution
This will improve 3D performance in live wallpaper and games. BUT
you wont be able to use downloaded keyboards (swiftkey, swype) you can only use the keyboards that came with the device (Asus stock keyboard). The downloaded ones doesn't play well on low density
