[September 16][Module][Xposed][LP][KK] TabletMetrics: Report screen > 7" - v5.1.2

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.

Tested and working on my Nexus 5 with stock KitKat 4.4 AND Lollipop 5.0.x AND Lollipop 5.1.x, 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.

Note: Same version should now work across KK & LP.

Download Module via Mega --> Download Xposed TableMetrics Module v5.1.2. Be sure to update to the latest Xposed library before reporting problems. Also, if you experience signature issues where module won't install, please uninstall your current version of tabletMetrics first, before installing the latest.

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)

EDIT: 28-Feb-2015 --> Updated version for Lollipop compatibility (v3.0)

EDIT: 17-Mar-2015 --> Updated version for KitKat compatibility (v2.2.1)

EDIT: 30-May-2015 --> Updated LP version (v4.0) for compatibility with Xposed Library version xposed-sdk21-arm-20150430.zip

EDIT: 05-June-2015 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v5.0), consolidated across Android platforms.

EDIT: 16-Sep-2015 --> Updated version for extended compatibility (v5.1.2)

Any form to make works this mod in JB??

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.

Also AndroidFileHost or dev-host

These require signing up for and approval, for which I did not want to go through / wait on the process to get this to you guys. Mirror added to OP for Mega which doesn't require login. Normal I host my own mods, but figured uploading would be best for this one.

Sorry about that. I didn't realize 4shared required login!

ok 4.1.2 galaxy S2 stock Rom

Thanks, I think I'm set with the links I've got in the OP ;)

FYI, all, I'm waiting for a few testers to get back to me to see if perhaps those experiencing glitches on Samsung, running Android 4.3 have been resolved.

Ok with Galaxy S2 Stock ROM 4.1.2 . Only turn landscape to fix resolution :) . Thanks !!!

I'd like to try it on my SGS2 GT-I9100 with XWLSN NeatROM Lite v4.6.1.
1. If I deactivate/uninstall the module will the changes be reverted?
2. I guess I simply have to use the play store to download/install the app.

    I can't for the life of me figure out why people want to ruin a good thing and continually disrespect the wishes as stated in the OP, in an effort to keep this module active and working.

    You guys win. Congratulations. Thread closed.
