XDA member remove location based restrictions on Google Play Store
If you’re outside the USA, you have been unable to receive full access to Google Play Store. Well not anymore, the latest mod from XDA might be right up your alley. XDA member Deeco7 has posted a modified version of the “Vending.apk” Google Play Store app file, with the aim of allowing anyone to download any app, regardless of their own location or the restrictions built into the app. The modified app works with Android 2.2 or later, and you don’t even need root to install it. You’ll need root access and a working knowledge of the Android file system and permissions to take advantage of it.
The next official update to the Google Play Store (which usually comes as a background download) could well knock Deeco7’s apk out, so those of you with custom recoveries make sure you do a backup just in case.
It never hurts to do this but if you don’t then you could get hurt.
