But bricking is not likely if you do this right.
Get ES File Explorer
from the play store and install.
Open the settings menu and scroll down to the "root settings" (near the bottom of the menu).
Open root settings and make sure to check all the options (grant su permissions when prompted).
Then, back out of settings menu and navigate to root (by clicking the "file up" button).
Open the system file and find build.prop file.
Open the build.prop file with ES Note Editor. (should be an option for ES Note Editor when you click on it)
VERY CAREFULLY SCROLL DOWN
until you see ro.sf.lcd_density=xxx
Where I put xxx, you will see a number like 240 or whatever the stock dpi is.
Now, click just after the line and delete the number (only the number, nothing else) and now enter a number that you want. (try 210). The smaller the number, the more "zoomed out" your screen will look. Stay within 150-300 though just to be safe.
BE CERTAIN THAT YOU DID NOT EDIT ANYTHING ELSE!!!
Back out and save when prompted.
Reboot. And see if you like it. The same process will change it back or to another size. Staying within 150-300 though just to be safe.
IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES.
