    I know it can be done, but don't recall how to change the way the play store recognizes the type of phone. I want to have it read my phone as a Nexus4 to get past a compatibility problem....
    Any ideas?

    Only found 2 settings in the build prop that had the model number in it.... Seems like there would be more to it than just those. Guess I'll try those in the morning... Hoping someone that knows for sure will post some instructions here...

    If you Google device spoofer that should also work. It also makes your comp think it's what ever device you are spoofing, but you can still connect to it. I use it for the optimum cable app and it works fine.



    I might still have it on my phone pm me if you need it.
