r1: Play Store 720 (forced resolution / DPI) - NON ROOT VERSION

2 posts in this topic


If you have a 1080 screened device (e.g. a HTC Butterfly, Xperia Z, Oppo Find 5 or HTC One etc.) you will have noticed that a number of apps that you'd usually install (e.g. BBC News, MySMS, Candy Crush Saga and many more) show as not being compatible due to the higher resolution of the device. This is very annoying. So i've made a fix.

I have created a patched version of the Play Store which is completely stock with the exception of the fact that it thinks your device has a 1280x720 screen at 320dpi - the Nexus 4 settings - hence the 'missing' applications show up.

The full APK can be downloaded in this topic but requires root. If you DO have root, I strongly recommend using the version in that post.

If you do NOT have root however, there is a solution to getting your apps to show up!

You need to do the following...

  • Download the APK linked below
  • Install it on your device and launch using the 'Play 720' icon
  • Search for an app that is usually missing (e.g. BBC News)
  • Try and install said app - the patched Play Store will force close
  • Uninstall Play 720
  • Launcher 'regular' Play Store and search for the same item - it should now show up
  • Job done!
    I'm currently working on tracking down the crash you see here so that you can just keep PLay 720 installed, but for now, this works. I've installed BBC News, Candy Crush Saga etc. on my unrooted HTC One no problem! :)

    One last thing, PLEASE don't repost the file elsewhere, link back to this topic so the version in circulation is always the latest!

    Enjoy! :)

Does this also work on Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) from Germany?
