Default Play store country restrictions

I want to download a few free apps/games from play store but unfortunately they are not available in my country, which is a shame. I've tried everything available on xda forums and Internet like installing Modded Google Play, Market Unlocker, Market Enabler, VPN etc but nothing worked for me. I even tried searching my desired app on default web browser of my phone but it didn't work as well.
Can someone help me out, please!

Hi there!

Here's an article on a modified play store that removes country restrictions. Its in the s2 section, but it will probably work for your device.

I wouldn't do anything unless you take a nandroid backup first. If you have a custom recovery.

You'd need to be rooted for this, so you should have a custom recovery.

Backup and try it. You can restore if you have issues. Or ask in the thread for it if you have issues.

Good luck!!

If nothing works, try asking in the general Q&A forum.

Or your specific device Q&A forum section.
