[WP7] Install all Nokia apps on LG and other devices

Hi guys,
today a simple tricks to browse Nokia store on your devices.

I tried only on LG Optimus 7 with success, installing Nokia Drive, App Highlights and all the others!


On your LG, install hidden app, MFG as explained in this old post.
Next, navigate to Engineer menu, and edit registry. (Famous REGEDIT for Windows).

1) Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo\MODeviceName and set the value to Lumia 800
2) Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo\OemName and set the value to NOKIA
3) Restart your phone
4) enjoy!

If you open the Marketplace, you can see Nokia Apps instead of LG Apps! Cool!

You can also try with an HTC device:

[code lang=”bash” autolinks=”false” collapse=”false” firstline=”1″ gutter=”true” htmlscript=”false” light=”false” padlinenumbers=”false” smarttabs=”true” tabsize=”4″ toolbar=”false”]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo: HD2
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Platform\OemName: HTC[/code]

have fun.
