Been trying lowering the dpi with Froyo roms around here for DHD (with sens or without) and the result is the same.. icons and apps are not made for lower dpi than 240 (DHD stock)

Cyanogen works great at 180 (excellent number for my choice), but the battery and speed doesn't come close to for example LeeDroid ROMs or robocik's ROMs with custom kernels..

Any solution for using lower dpi with those ROMs?
Please don't start asking why do I want to lower the dpi.. I just want to get some extra space and hate big fonts and big icons!

If anyone wants to try different dpi just use root explorer, go to system folder and there is a file called build.prop -> open it in editor, change the line "ro.sf.lcd_density=240" to =180 , save and exit and restart your phone..

you can try 220, 200 offcourse..
