    Hello guys i recently used that proxy method to install Samsung's App folder and Nokia Pro Cam on my Lumia 520. Is it possible to install 1gb RAM games like this? I havent tried it because file size of games are too large to test. as anyone tested it yet?

    Update: Yes we can install 1gb ram games!

    Games tested and working : Gun Bros ( will upload video soon)

    Games to be tested: Nova3, fifa13, amazing spider-man, etc etc DO COMMENT BELOW IF YOU HAVE ANY REQUESTS

    It ran lagfree on lumia 520. Did it without errors. Also i read that we can only install wp7 apps n games. So anything latest wont work.

    You should give it try so that everyone can know which games work.

    Okay guys tried almost all games...here's a conclusion! You can install only those games which are availlable for free on wp7 and wp8 but is isn't available for your phone. Eg: Gun Bros. Even the paid games u can't even try them

    Yes it gets an error. Just tried! So i think only those games can b installed which are on both Wp7 and wp8! I guess the number of games are very limited which have 1gb ram req and are on both OS.

    just use the normal proxy procedure used for install nokia camera, you can install *some* 1gb limited app too.
    Like gautam12 said you can install only 1gb limited app that exists in the WP7 market, or you will have an error in some point of the procedure. I wasted LOT of time trying to install Real Racing 2 on a Lumia 720 (512mb) and it's totally impossible. Well, not totally impossible, i installed a Real Racing 2 version with hacked manifest file (you need developer unlock on your phone) and it works well, just a little low framerate but totally playable, never crashed.


    I hated so much this limit, 512mb phone can handle some 1gb limited app and i loved playing Real Racing 2 or swapping my friends faces with Face Swap (another limited app) on my lumia 720, but install procedure can take lot of time if you're unlucky (lot of tries!) and i don't like to install hacked app on my phone.
    So.. i solved selling my Lumia 720 and buying a Lumia 925, a little drastic i know! :P
