Hack the Play Store

As most of you are aware some apps in Play Store are country specific. For the life of me I can`t understand why is that so. In my honest opinion we should all be able to use them at will. It`s not like we`re stealing paid apps. For example... Google Earth is not able to be obtained in my country. Play Store doesn`t show the app at all. Like it`s non-existing. But that app is free and furthermore it`s awesome.

Solution to download the country specific apps will be shown to you below.



MARKET ENABLER
Your phone must be rooted and you must have BusyBox installed to use it. It works straight from the phone.

This app will unlock your market by faking operator settings (APN).
You will get market as it is for the provider you choose. You will be able to view and obtain all apps including paid ones and NO you won`t be able to get them for free. You will still have to pay for them.

It is simple to use, but sometimes causes minor problems. In my case I couldn`t see MMS sent to me when I was using Market Enabler. To fix this just restore original provider settings and you`ll be fine.

DOWNLOAD (copy apk to your phone and install it)


OPEN APP and you`ll get this:
