Here is a simple tutorial which will let you install incompatible apps from Google Play Store to your Android device. While downloading apps from Play Store, you might come up across apps which are incompatible or country restricted. As we know there is solution to (almost) everything on the Android platform. Same goes here.
In this tutorial you will learn how to install incompatible apps on your device by using Market Helper. This app lets you fake your device to look like another device (like, fake your phone to appear as Samsung S3), fake country of the device, as well as fake operator. So, if any apps did not install on your device earlier due to device, country, or operator restriction; you can get past that now.
The first thing that is required in this tutorial is that your device is needed to be rooted; if you’re not rooted then Market Helper won’t work. If you are not rooted then Google for a rooting guide for your device.
Using Market Helper to install incompatible apps on your Android device:
- You will need to download and install the Market Helper on your device. You can get the link to the app’s XDA page at the end of this article.
- Enable “Unkown Sources” on your Android device by heading to Settings > Security > “Unknown Sources”.
- Once you have downloaded the APK, install it onto your device.
- Now run Market Helper and you will have the interface as seen below. Now simply change the settings as seen below. The app allows you to choose between three devices as seen here. If you are trying to get country restricted apps, then choose the appropriate country and operator.
- Now simply press activate button and Market Helper will ask you for root permission. Grant the app the permission and allow it access to your account.
- After this, you will get a success message as seen here, now go to the Google Dashboard and update the change in the devices selection. It is important that you follow this step, all you need to do is visit the page.
- Now you will be able to access apps which were restricted due to device specification, device type, or carrier.
- Rebooting will restore everything to default.
Just because the app is now compatible and will install from the Play Store to your device does not mean that it will work on your device perfectly. In some cases it might not.
