Hey guys,

As you all know with the 1.7 Version of the chromecast app google enabled screen mirroring on selected devices. Since a Nexus 5 is a selected device i decided to try to make my Sony Xperia Z2 a Nexus 5

I changed the following original Sony build.prop settings from:

Code:
ro.build.product=D6503
ro.product.brand=Sony
ro.product.name=D6503
ro.product.device=D6503
to:

Code:
ro.build.product=hammerhead
ro.product.brand=google
ro.product.name=hammerhead
ro.product.device=hammerhead
I took the build.prop settings from a original Nexus 5 build.prop file.

Tested and working...it's great !

I guess you can easily adapt this to any other phone, so just a quick hack.

regards,

Yes, preferably an xposed module to trick the app into working or at least a hacked app. Not everyone wants their phone thinking it's a Nexus. Thanks for the heads up though!

I downloaded this apk:

Works very well! (didn't want to break my build.prop as well)
