How to change screen resolution in RaspAnd

One member on this site shared his “discovery” that the screen resolution while running RaspAnd (Android Lollipop 5.1 on Raspberry) can be changed by editing the file config.txt on the boot partition. This is so important/good that I had to write this special article about it.

If you open config.txt you will see these two lines
framebuffer_width=1280
framebuffer_height=720

I.e. change to (for example)

framebuffer_width=1920
framebuffer_height=1080

You will notice a big difference!
