    Google play "Device not compatible "

    This happened to me before either when I was running. 903, Liberty... or both and now it's doing it with. 232.
    Was trying to D/L nova launcher from the Play store and got the"Your device is not compatible with this version "message, thus not allowing for D/L.. So I tried looking for something I already have installed..and got the same message. I did eventually get what I was looking for via a Google .apk search. I have cleared cache on the Google Play app, uninstalled updates, but the issue comes back. Any ideas?

    Idk for sure but maybe you need to free up some memory?

    I've seen this with some apps like a person wanting to download a Sims game.. she had to free up some memory .

    It's not just confined to my phone.
    I get the same message when I use a computer and open Google play in a browser.. where it says " choose device " my Bionic is listed, however it is grayed out and when " install" is selected, the same message comes up.

    It's not just Nova launcher, (which I do have installed via a Google search, email to phone, install)...but Dolphin browser and Handcent as well...both installed without issues on the first time I tried but according to the Play store, they also aren't compatible now and doesn't show it's installed .

    Im 99% sure it is because your pixel density (ppi) was changed. The stock ppi for the bionic is 256

    Although I did drop my LCD density to 200 via Rom Toolbox, if that were the case I don't think I would have been able to install via play on my phone in the first place, and I'm not sure it would matter to the play store via a computer browser..but, I did try again after setting the density back to stock and reboot.. still the same message.

    That's what I used

    So,basically what I am hearing is even though I had set my resolution to 200 PRIOR with Rom Toolbox (and rebooted) opened Play for apps like Handcent,Dolphin and others and had zero issues with finding,and installing..now all of a sudden Google Play has decided that my resolution is too crisp to install from a computer browser as well? My screen resolution settings are backed up to Google? And if I want to search for other apps ( Handcent no longer shows up as a searchable app in Play,even though I downloaded,and installed it..and use it daily..was just checking to see what was up) I will have to factory reset my phone? Is Google run by Skynet now?

    No factory reset should be needed just use rom toolbox and change it to 256ppi and then reboot and you should be good to go.

    Also did you uninstall all play store updates and clear data?
