Hi all.
I thought i give you a little hint what you can do with your Desire.
Have you always wanted a bigger screen?
Now there is a way.
It's been known for a while but not many people done it on Desire what i've seen.
You do it by changing LCD Density.
The original is 240.
A good value is 200.
You cannot do this on the phone because we dont have full root
You can do it with 2 ways.
Either use ADB
Or just simple edit a ROM
I will add this feature soon to my kitchen so you all can do it easy.
If you want to do it in a ROM now this is how.
1. Unzip the rom
2. Go to the sytem folder and open build.prop in notepad.
3. Find lcd.density, the current value should be 240.
4. Change it to 200
5. zip the ROM
6 factory reset
7. flash the ROM
8 and you are now set to go with a bigger screen ^^ kind of

ADB method:

basically it makes your screen look a bit "zoomed out" i.e. smaller (so you get more on the screen.

Or alternative increase the number to make your phone more "zoomed in" i.e. everything is bigger, fit less on the screen.
