No, you can't. Being able to see applications targeted at higher Android version is useless, because it won't install or run anyway.

    @Tilsan I am 100% sure you cannot see applications targeted for 1.6 or higher from an unmodded version of 1.5

  • Unmodded means not modified, ie. not rooted.

Only one way to find out. Try it.


It won't matter. You can only run apps where the developer has either set the target to Android 1.5 or the mintarget to 1.5 (with a target to 1.6+, meaning they'd have to be careful that Android 1.5 doesn't make API calls that do not exist yet for 1.5).
