    Angry Help - made dumb mistake on phone

    I made a stupid mistake on my phone, running android 2.1. I rooted the phone and was fooling around with it when I changed the LCD density (didn't do a backup, I know! very stupid). After a restart the icons are very big and when I try to change the LCD density back on the app I can't give the app Superuser access because the allow button on the touch screen is off the screen so I can't select. I did a factory reset but that didn't fix the issue. My phone has a pull out keyboard, anyway I can use it to select option on the screen? or anyone know a way around this???

    Thanks a lot!!!

    You might be able to use the directional pad to select the options. Though you can see them, it will be trail and error until you click the right one.

    Try pulling the battery, waiting 30 seconds, then pressing and holding the search key on the keyboard while powering up. Worst-case scenario you have a regular bootup.
