How to
Install like normal app. And change I9100 to I9300 in build.prop
- ro.product.model=

Reboot 1 time.

It's done ;)

*If anyone can't use, try to change these.
- ro.product.name=

- ro.build.product=
From I9100 to I9300 and reboot.


Next version I will make it easy to use it ;)

problem

Hi!

Can anybody tell me where to change ro.product.model=.
I chaged in /system/build.prop and it doesnt working after restart!

I have Motorola Razer XT910 with CyanogenMod 10.1 and my build number is XT910 not the I9100!

Thanks

A question...

Will this technique work with CM10.1 running on I9100?

I installed the app, changed the build.prop and all I was getting was a black screen when I restarted...

I use Dorimanx's Kernel

I just tried changing the build.prop on the Super Nexus ROM and the phone wouldn't reboot.

So for anyone out there that has this happen to them, just re-install the rom and your build.prop file should go back to normal.

+1, did this thing myself before KNTXTremE's reply..

Try to change
- ro.product.name=
- ro.product.device=
- ro.build.product=

to I9300 and reboot again.

I did try changing all 3 of them and then changed them back and everything...
Didn't work :(

I got it to boot but facebook home still showing that it isn't available for this device. Tried clearing data, didn't work.

I'm using RootBrowser to change the build.prop

Here's the build.prop

If I'm reading you right, you're not doing it right. The point of changing the build.prop file is not to trick the Play Store into allowing you to download it, it's to trick the FB Home app linked in the OP into thinking it's installed on the right phone.

Install the app linked in the OP, not via the Play Store.

    Bro no need for build prop change now :D

    Hey.. :)

    So I modded FB Home to run on all (?) devices, without touching build.prop or requiring root.
    Tested on GNEX, NEXUS 7 emulators.

    Download
    http://d-h.st/qOz
    + Facebook Messenger with Chat heads fix
    http://d-h.st/8jn

    Installation
    • Uninstall original facebook, facebook messenger and facebook home apps. If facebook is pre-installed then you probably need root to remove it :(
    • Extract .rar!
    • Install com.facebook.katana (FB app), then com.facebook.home (Home app).
    • Also install com.facebook.orca.apk (Messenger app).
    • Enable facebook home under facebook app settings.​

    Expecting your feedback.
