How can I circumvent regional restrictions in the Android Market?

I'd like to install an app from the Market which is limited to the USA (specifically Google Music). When I search for the app myself in the Market app on my phone, it does not find the app; it seems to be filtered.

So how do I install apps which are not meant for my country?

Before we got paid apps in the Android Market in Denmark, I used to use Market Enabler (requires root). This allowed me to pretend that I was a resident in another country, and thus buy paid apps from the Market.

Perhaps you can use the same solution, faking the market to believe you are from the US?

  • MarketEnabler no longer works. AndroidMarket checks for IP address as well to find the user's location. Can't cheat any more ;)

  • If that's the case then maybe you can connect via VPN or Proxy. Though I'm not sure as to how. Feb 7, 2012 at 18:09
