    How does one go about unlocking carrier specific apps? I have seen a supposedly unlocked .apk for the new verizon NFL Mobile (haven't tried it though as I am on Verizon).

    I'm interested in trying the same thing with Sprint's Nascar app for use on Verizon. I've searched but can't seem to find one out there. I have found the .apk, but of course it tells me I must be on Sprint to use it.
    Thanks for the info guys.

    Use the pulldown editor and change Verizon Wireless to Sprint. That should do it.

    This is how the apps determine your carrier. So it should work, although not 100% sure because I haven't tried. Someone please confirm.

    haha! that would be awesome if that was the only thing to do to trick an app! Is there a "universal" carrier name? haha

    That did not work for me. I used the "themed" method of changing the carrier name.

    Here's the .apk

    Yeah, I used pulldown editor to change it to "Sprint" but it didn't work. I meant to reply last weekend but was at talladega and wasn't really thinking about it.

    Here is the .apk file i found for the Sprint NASCAR app. I don't know if its the most recent version, but its the only one i could find through google. Droidforums wouldn't let me upload as a .apk so i zipped it.

    If anyone figures out a way to get this working please pass on the info.

    Cheers,
    Joey
