Default [Trick] How to make apps compatible with ur device in play store

Hi there
Is ur play store showing this app is incompatible with ur device?
Or you trying to search for an app/game but you are not able to find in play store.
Then this is the guide for you
Its nothing but showing our device as an high end device to play store (by editing build.prop file)so
the play store will not prompt us with a msg that Ur device is not compatible with this app.(like game dead space,9mm)
[---------------------FIRST------METHOD---------]
(1) Give root permission to ES file explorer and navigate to build.prop file found in system folder
Now u have to change following lines in build.prop to show ur device as Samsung galaxy s3

ro.product.model=GT-I9300
ro.product.brand=samsung
ro.product.name=m0xx
ro.product.device=m0
ro.product.board=smdk4x12
ro.product.manufacturer=samsung

(2)save this build.prop and exit

(3)open market helper app download it here
choose device as Samsung galaxy s3
A popup will display "go to Google dashboard" click on it
Now goto "manage apps" and change device model to GT-I9300 and exit.

-------clear data of play store in your phone (apps>manage apps>all>play store) and reboot
Open play store and enjoy....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Above method confusing flsha multi DPI play store for 4.2.x roms
Flash This zip
Reboot clear data of play store and Google services framework again reboot
Now access play store with all apps

They might. Usually it's listed in the description if the app is compatible only for few models.
But its a good method to get all apps listed because if we change the DPI, some of the apps are shown incompatible and they work perfectly when side-loaded. For e.g. Candy Crush Saga and Tower Defense.
Hit Thanks If I Helped You!

If the above changes are done, what will happen to the existing apps? If there is any update available, will it notify about the updates?
