[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.
