I have circle case and this is how I did it.

I set LGHome Launcher to 540dpi in App Settings. Then in G3 Tweakobx I did the custom grid in the app drawer.

Then I set each individual app that I use often to 540 like Brower, Gmail, Fb etc..

This makes the launcher look more pleasing but it doesn't mess up any of the circle case apps

Takes more work this way though

I changed system wide dpi to 530 and when i booted up i got a "t mobile visual voicemail has stopped." plus, and this is REALLY weird, my device stopped "seeing" my external card. I wanna use xposed but I've noticed that some games break with it. Namely, final fantasy dimensions. Anyone else here game a lot that can tell me everything is ok using xposed tweaks?

I'm also getting the small lockscreen for a second after turning the screen on. Its like it has to reload every time. It only pops up small for a second or two then goes normal. Has anyone found a fix yet?

Is it possible that it's LG's lockscreen wallpaper software?
Can we use an alternative app to set the lockscreen wallpaper?

I've already tried editing the lockscreen app DPI but I see no difference

Using Rom Toolbox Pro to change the DPI to 530 fixes the small lockscreen. I don't need to use APP Settings to change the individual apps dpi's either.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1408650157309.jpg

Do you get force closes on system apps? I did that before with solid Explorer. I would have FC's viewing "app info"

Rom Toolbox is an awesome app. I'm not sure why more people don't use it. It has everything. It also has much more than any other root browser app I've come across.
