    Hi All :)

    I was wondering if you can make a Samsung Galaxy Mini compatible with the application " draw something"? It does say that my device isn't compatible, but i heard a little rumor that you can "alter" certain things on your device to make it compatible. Just wondering if it's possible, and if it is... HOW?

    Many thanks,

    SophieSoph !

    Market Fix - Root claims to do just that or you can manually edit the build.prop file. I would recommend the former and use the app. It does use push for advertising, but, theoretically, you can just use the app to modify the prop file then uninstall it.

    Personally, I rather modify the build.prop myself than trust an app with root privileges that also uses push advertising.

    So far it hasn't cause any issues on my phone. I can't test the functionality, though, I can't think of any "incompatible" apps off-hand that aren't incompatible because of my carrier.

    The problem with altering compatibilities is that you will likely be forcing an app to run on hardware less than recommended, so expect probable lags and force closure on a low end device like the Fit.

    That's what I was thinking. I'm sure most apps are incompatible because the phone is not really design for the app you want to use so it might not work properly.

    Wouldn't an easier solution be to just sideload the app in question? Then you don't need root or have to worry about some possibly nefarious third-party app.
