This should be moved to ace-i general section, as this is regular ace section.

For you to download any apps from Google Play, your phone must be connected to a network. A simple solution will be to switch on the data connection and then run the reverse tethering app. Most reverse tethering app will disable the data download using network connection, meaning the data connection icon will be present but downloading will be done using reverse tethering. This is the only way to fool Google Play into thinking that the phone is connected to network when actually you are downloading the content using your pc connection. If your mobile data connection is used for download, kindly switch off the data connection as the reverse tethering app is not capable of disabling the data connection. Do post the result. Hope I Helped
