Default [May 27][Module][Xposed][KK] TabletMetrics: Report screen > 7" - v2.2

Linked is an Xposed Module that will allow your phone to report its screen size as >= 7", in order to allow an app that does not otherwise spot your phone as a tablet (via, for example, the Per App Settings module), to do so.

It's important NOT to play up any sort of app specific functionality in this thread, as the module is "global" in scope and targets the Android framework level, as opposed to a specific app. Whatever benefit this has for you is neither expressed nor implied.

Since the module targets getDisplayMetrics() in the Android framework to adjust the reported/calculated diagonal screen size, I'm not sure that it will work on other versions of Android. Tested and working on my Nexus 5 with stock KitKat 4.4.2, YMMV.

As with all Xposed modules --> install the linked APK --> make the module active --> reboot --> profit.

Note: This module has no front-end UI, so there is nothing to do but install and make active.

Thanks to Rovo89, et al, for the amazing framework.

Download Module via Mega --> Download Xposed TableMetrics Module v2.2

EDIT: 05-Jan-2014 --> Updated to support Samsung Android 4.3 Phones. Huge thanks to @Guitarboarder28 for providing debug logs, screen captures, and testing.

EDIT: 05-Feb-2014 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v1.9)

EDIT: 25-Mar-2014 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v2.0)

EDIT: 10-Apr-2014 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v2.1)

EDIT: 27-May-2014 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v2.2)

If you're on an OEM modified ROM (Sense, Touchwiz, Motoblur, etc), where the frameworks have been potentially "adjusted", there's no way to guarantee compatibility.

You can try, and if it works, great. If not, .

Please keep in mind, as stated in the OP and thread title, this is intended (initially) for KitKat (KK) based ROMs.

Having said that, as time permits, I will try and see what (if anything) can be done to support additional flavors.
