Mods please move this if this isn't the right section but I saw the thread made by shadow caster http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2401489 (credits for finding the app and most of the instructions for not bootlooping)and the app actually worked. So I did some snooping around and found out the app simply does one command while the paid version adds another for changing the density.
Simply download the file which corresponds with your device and run it using scriptmanager with root enabled. To get rid of it use the reset file which is universal for all devices.
Remember to clear launcher data after every change and reset.
For android 4.3 replace am with wm
Now for the magic:
Simply type this into terminal or adb shell
am display-size yourresolution
So for example(Resolution of prime)
am display-size 1280x800
Also since the dpi will be whack you'll also want to resize that so here it is.
am display-density youedensity
So for example(Density of prime)
am display-density 160
Also as a side note go to settings and clear data for your launcher so it adjusts to the dpi and resolution.
So far everything is running fine for me and the implications of this are pretty awesome. Like resizing for lower res tvs. Playing games that don't run so well and don't have resolution options. The settings even stick after reboot so to get rid of them all you have to do is type.
am display-density reset
am display-size reset
I hope this is helpful to everyone!!
-Cromi-X seems to have data loss and bootlooping issues.
