Default play any app on the xoom with this trick

I've been reading lots of posts on apps not fitting the screen and having a black area instead of posting in each thread I decided to make a new thread on how to


Download spare parts
Scroll down to compatabilty mode uncheck the box then recheck it
Back out of the app
Go back to spare parts uncheck it again.
The reboot

Games I've tried are super tumble hungry sharks the wars so far and they all work in full screen

Default Installing incompatible apps?

Does anyone's know if there is a way to install apps that the app market deems to be not compatible with your device? I read somewhere that the xfinity app may work on tablets even though it was not not designed for it and I want to give it a shot , but I can't download from the market.

Damn. Doesn't work on Hero of Sparta. This game needs the attack and defend buttons to be right at the edge of the screen to make it work. Oh well, it's a pretty lame app anyway.

Can you plug in a ps3 controller and use the game that way?
