Play Some of the Newest Games on Older ARMv6 Devices

Gaming is a part of life of almost every Android enthusiast. But many of new titles are hitting the market have one thing in common: They are written and optimized for new devices with modern architectures and instruction sets.  Unfortunately, not every XDA member has powerful device like a Nexus 5 or Xperia Z Ultra.

Some XDA users noticed that replacing ARMv7 libs with ARMv6 equivalents made some applications work on older devices. This is a time consuming process though, as the APK needs to be decompiled, ported, and recompiled. Because of this, not every user has the time to do so.

XDA Senior Member aweosomeabhijeet wrote a simple, but yet brilliant batch script to do all the work for us. Currently, only games based on Unity 3D engine can be ported with this tool, but hopefully this list will grow longer in the future. This tool requires Windows, Notepad ++, and a glass of milk to work. Keep in mind that not every game will work after running the script, but it’s definitely worth a shot. And one last thing: Paid games ported by this tool cannot be posted on XDA. That would be piracy. Please keep this in mind.

If you own an older device and want to play some of the newest games on your device, you should definitely try this tool. You can find more information in the original thread.
