*** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK *** I’ll not take responsibility for anything happen to you or your account


What is this?

Market Helper is a tool for Android that helps users to be able to change/fake their rooted devices to any other devices. For example, it can turn your Nexus 7 into Samsung Galaxy S3 in a few seconds. No reboot is required.

Why do I need to use this?

To download and install incompatible apps from Android Market / Google Play Market on your devices. For example, if you want to install Viber on your Nexus 7, switch it to Samsung Galaxy S3 and you’ll can. Or if you change your DPI value, you’ll find this app very useful.

( I’ll update this section later ;P )

Why is this app awesome?

– It DOES NOT touch your build.prop or any system files so it’s easier and safer.

– You don’t have to reboot the device to update the change.

– You can switch back your device to original state anytime, by using “Restore” feature or simply by rebooting your device ( with wifi/3g is enabled )

– Totally free

Download link

I do not upload this app to the Google Play Store or anywhere else. It’s only available here, on this blog, for free

Market Helper 2.0.4 ( 2016/01/28 )

Supports: Android 2.3+ devices with Android Market / Google Play Store + Google Services Framework installed

Tested on Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy S3, running JellyBean 4.1.2

⭐️ Please checkout my new app: Mauf – Custom Messenger Colors

Change Facebook Messenger conversation's color to any colors you want
Change Facebook Messenger conversation’s color to any colors you want. No root needed.

How to use?

1. Download and install the app:

2. Open the app. Select the device and carrier you want to change to

3. Press Activate. Wait until it’s done

4. IMPORTANT: go to Android Device Manager  to update the change ( just visit the page, you don’t need to do anything ). I’ll find a way to bypass this step in later versions

5. Have fun. Now you can download apps that you couldn’t before.

If you want to switch back to normal, select “Restore” in device list and press “Activate”, or simply reboot the device ( with wifi/3g is enabled )

Please keep in mind that you can install incompatible apps doesn’t mean that those apps will 100% work on your device, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t go to Google Play Store and complain about it on the comment section or email the developer. I’m a developer too and I really hate when it happens. Thanks 🙂

Why does this app require so many permissions?

I know some of you will ask this question, so I’ll explain it.

android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE ( read phone status and identity ) : get your phone operator

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE ( modify or delete the contents of your USB Storage + Test access to protected storage ) : read and write files on your external storage ( sdcard )

– android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE + android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE + android.permission.INTERNET ( full network access ) : access the internet

– android.permission.AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS + android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS + android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS ( create accounts and set passwords + find accounts on the device + use accounts on the device ) : find current account on your device

– ( read Google service configuration ) : get your authentication token for two services C2DM and ANDROIDMARKET. Those tokens will be used for checking in

If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
