Your Honeycomb Tablet Has a Gingerbread UI

Google plans to eventually have both Android tablets and smartphones running Ice Cream Sandwich. However, until then, Google tablets are running the company’s tablet-optimized version of Android, Honeycomb, while phones are based on Gingerbread, aka Android 2.3.

However, those with tablet rocking Honeycomb needn’t feel left out of the Gingerbread fun. Pocketables reports modder Graffix0214 has discovered that bumping the pixel density (ppi) from 160 to higher than 170 will transform your rooted Honeycomb tablet into a Gingerbread tablet. You can use ‘LCDDensity for Root’ to tweak the dpi and toggle back and forth between Honeycomb and Gingerbread as much as you like.

    Sort of like using a wire hanger to fix a broken rabbit ear antenna on an old TV set.
