Tattoo Market v2: Display Higher Resolution Apps in Market

HTC Tattoo owners often face the problem that there aren’t much QVGA applications out there for their QVGA Tattoo’s. The Android Market doesn’t show any higher resolution apps, so there’s just a small collection of apps available for the Tattoo. However there are a lot of higher resolution apps that will  automatically re-scale themselves to the specific resolution. Fortunately XDA-member moneytoo has made a patch that  will make it easier to download higher resolution apps from the Market. You will have to root your Tattoo though.

This patch will allow you to see all apps in Android Market – not just QVGA resolution. Most of the apps will work just fine because Android downscales them automatically, it’s just some developers are so lazy.

On the screenshots you can see Market search for “video”:

  • Original Market -before applying patch
  • Patched Market v1
  • Patched Market v2
  • Patched Market v2 and Market Enabler (set to T-Mobile US)

What does it do?

  • fakes resolution 320×480 instead of 240×320 (changed constant)
  • fakes camera autofocus support (disabled reading noautofocus workaround)

Installation: Root your Tattoo, copy patched Market to the device “adb push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/Vending.apk” and reboot.
(Based on reports from users: You may be required to change system language to English before launching the patched Market and re-accepting ToS. I have no idea why…)

Continue on to the application thread for more info & download
