    Default CM7 HDPI themes on MDPI phones

    Im not sure if this topic has been discussed before or not. If it has and had been posted before i do apoligize,but i think i have found a way to install HDPI themes on MDPI phones. what i did was change my (qemu.sf.lcd_density) from value:160 down to value:130 and it seems that im able to install all themes no matter if there HDPI or MDPI. I used blade buddy to accomplish this, and it seems im able to run them perfectly fine.

    But MDPI is 160dpi while HDPI is 240dpi. I'm confused... how does lowering the density make it possible to install HDPI themes?

    I believe making the screen smaller helped with the resolution difference. Other than that I really don't know. I'm sure drew could explain in detail a little better than I could.

    I can't upload from tapatalk. All u have to do is switch the LCD to 130 save and reboot. If it doesn't work switch back to 160 save and reboot. Or just nandroid restore.
