How to change device resolution (X/Y range)?

Postby PoisonWolf » Wed Mar 06, 2013 11:11 am

Hi folks,

I'm trying to compile my own kernel based on Omegamoon's github and I'm trying to figure out how to change the device resolution. I've noticed that even at outputting at 480p, 720p, or 1080p under Settings (check source info on TV to confirm)....the device resolution is still 1920x1032 (48 pixels for status bar) as indicated by various apps (e.g., Taiji Benchmark > Device Info). This results in generally slower UI performance relative to 1080p output kernels that utilize a 1280x672 (720p - 48 pixels for status bar) device resolution. That is, the device is essentially performing a downscaling from internal 1080p to external 720p and is not mirroring a 1:1 pixel count.

Does anyone know where I could change this? I'd like to test multiple resolutions such as 720x480p and 1280x720p internal resolutions (and if possible 1024x768 for a 4:3 ratio) and see how that impacts gaming performance and heat output on the device. I've actually checked drivers > video > display > screen and there appears to be support for 1080p, 720p, and 480p ..but again I'm not sure if this is for the external feed or if this is for the internal feed....

Thanks guys,
Keep rocking.

Bump. Anyone know the answer to this ? Some kernels like omega moon have a device resolution of 1080p which makes the layout really small whereas kernels like 2dark4u have a device resolution of 720p which makes them bigger. I'm not looking to change the DPI, just to be clear, but to change the device resolution when compiling.

I'm having a hard time finding out what part of the source is used to determine the device resolution when compiling.

Thanks guys.
