Accessing the Google Play Store Outside Of The USA
Download and install the following file:
- Market Enabler HERE
Download DROIDvpn which you can find in the play store, then create an account by signing up.
Navigate to your ‘App Manager’. You will need to delete ALL play store data as well as the cache.
Now launch the ‘Market Enabler’ you downloaded in step 1. From here you need to select any US carrier (Tmobile for example). All you need to do to select it is tap and hold the carrier name until an option comes up. Then select ‘fake this provider now’.
Step 5. You now need to open and login to DROIDvpn.
At some stage you MIGHT need to get TUN.ko, if you are prompted to do so, you can download it HERE.
You should now be able to open the Google Play store internationally and have complete access to download books, movies, music or whatever your heart desires
