Maybe we don’t need proxys to bypass Google Play region/carrier locks

Still in the middle of figuring out how exactly Google wants things to be done now. Seems like the issue is bigger than I originally thought. (Re)Discovered a curious tidbit, though, which I’ll have to look into, once I have everything up and running again. In FDFE urls, the following two url parameters are supported:

  • ipCountryOverride
  • mccmncOverride

I think, the idea here is that if you are, let’s say a japanese user on vacation in some other part of the world, you should still be able to download apps only available in Japan.

Well, anyway, that just came up while digging around. Not important now. I just don’t want to forget it (again).
