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 APK can be downloaded in this topic - you'll need to be rooted as you need to push it to /system/app/Phonesky.apk and chmod it to 644. You also need to remove Phonesky.odex and then reboot. This is very much in testing - please let me know how you get on!
