    I have searched for this, but only found it with other phones, sorry in advance if I didn't search hard enough. How do you go about altering the ov's build.prop in order for the market not to say "device not compatible"? I know HOW to change it btw, just not what needs to be changed for our phone Sent from my Glorious OV running tdm's Quattrimus build...not the crap phone listed below

    The Optimus V can run apps which according to the devs it can't. Examples include NBA Jam, PES. It's usually games, the Optimus can run these apps so editing the build.prop let's us get these apps.

    Exactly, but what line do I need to change? Model, fingerprint, etc.? And to what? :what:

    This is an example of a build.prop edit. All the lines in red are the ones he's altered.
    You're going to want to compare it with a similar device with more options available on the market.
    Although I warn you, I wouldn't pay for any of the apps that aren't compatible. It most likely will be a waste of your money

    I've tried doing this, but it doesn't work. Maybe I'm not changing the right stuff, I don't know. If you get it working, could you PM me please?

    I would also like to know what exactly to edit. I change my LCD Density and the Market lists many apps as incompatible which are not, latest case, an app called Smod Forever, which just streams podcasts (Stitcher is a piece of crap or I'd just use that.) Yes, I know there are alternative markets to use, but I'd rather just stick to official Google Play if possible.

    EDIT -- Seems this thread is focused on ICS? I'm running Harmonia 2, if that's relevant.
