Is there a working TB ROM that would allow us to download and play this App "Ultimate Special Fx"

It says it requires Android v2.3.7 Gingerbread or higher to run.

I'm running ThunderShed CM7 , when I last checked said it was 2.3.7.

Any thoughts ??

android versions
i've never heard of or used ultimate special fx, but you are correct, thundershed is android version 2.3.7. as i'm unfamiliar with the app in question, and am not sure if there are other hardware/software prerequisites to running the app besides the android version, i can only break down android versions types of roms use as a base. the open mobile leak/mr4 roms are android version 2.3.6. the roms based off of 2.11.605.9 are android 2.3.4 i believe. but yes, in theory, thundershed should be able to run the app.

Thanks for your reply here is the link to the APP. I was also looking for prerequisites but all that is says 2.3.7 and above. I'm wondering if Play Store is set to block all TB roms till the official ICS for TB is released by VZW.

Check out Ultimate Special Fx on Google Play! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.techcatmobile.ultimatespecialfx

Yes, play store restricts apps you can view based on your device id and android version for compatibility reasons, and to protect consumers from purchasing apps they can't run. Also, devices can be blocked from viewing apps in play store because the developer has chosen to restrict them or doesn't support them. Custom roms also sometimes change the device id in the build prop to one that play store doesn't understand or recognize. It's still possible to get around this though. You can either download the app from your computer and move it to your phone, or modify your build prop file with a root browser to reflect a different and compatible device and obtain the app normally. With either course of action, the app chainfire3D can be used to scale the graphical/processing demands of ultimate special fx to fit the thunderbolt's gpu. Keep in mind, I personally haven't tried to do this, it's just a suggestion to try if you're bound and determined to get the app. Hope that helps.

Here is the APK file. I dowloaded it via my PC and threw (USB) it over to my TB and it works good.

Please Note** You still need to be v2.3.7
